Our FAQ posted by Siva has all the details (thanks Siva).
But to clarify, in order to be Zachman Certified, we are requiring Architects to take the courses. It is possible for one to take the test through the ICCP without taking the courses, however that person will not be designated "Zachman Certified" unless they take the courses through Zachman International. It is the only way that we can control what people actually know and how much they truly understand.
Incidentally, there are a lot of people who think they understand the Zachman Framework, but after taking the courses, they come away with a whole new perspective and realize it is far deeper then they ever understood.
Hope that helps! -John Zachman (Son of Zachman Framework Originator)

Thank you John.
I had the privillege of attending your father's 1-day session in Bangalore, India. Do you guys have any plans to offer the certification courses(the Z series) in a similar manner in India?

I'm glad you saw his 1-day. That is great!
Yes, we are working on Zachman Certified dates in India right now. We just have to get a few more details squared away.
Keep checking our course schedule for updates. -John Z

5500$ to get certified?
I wonder how many people get certified, right now?
