An enterprise architect links the business mission, strategy and processes of an organisation to its IT and presents how the current and future needs of an organisation will be met in an efficient and agile manner. ISS is pleased to offer the Specialist Diploma in Enterprise Architecture to equip practitioners with in-depth knowledge and best practices in Enterprise Architecture (EA).
The Specialist Diploma is made up of two parts:
A participant has to successfully complete Part A and obtain all the 8 NICF EA Statements of Attainment (SOAs) before embarking on the practicum (20 weeks).
The specialist diploma combines formal practice-based education with a customised practicum. The customised practicum allows participants to adopt, learn and master EA in the context of their organisation. It is designed to validate the existence of those qualities and skills in a participant which enable the effective practice of EA. As such, the programme is skills, knowledge and experience-based and goes beyond validating the mastery of any specific EA knowledge base.
The qualification will be awarded to EA practitioners to recognise their ability to apply EA skills, knowledge and experience in the context of their organisation’s EA.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
The qualification is targeted at EA practitioners to recognise their ability to apply EA skills, knowledge and experience in the context of their organisation’s EA.

Other areas of EA covered in the course include:

The Enterprise Architecture Practicum must be completed within 20 weeks and includes a 5.5 days of mentoring contact with ISS lecturers. The Practicum dates are open and flexible, and will be agreed mutually between the lecturer(s) and participant. The sessions can be held on-site at ISS or off-site at the participant’s company.
