I came into this course for achieving Business Architecture Certification readiness. I stumbled in self learning with the BizBok only, watching webinars, and so on. This Programme, although very time extensive, really helped me, I could learn in my own pace, test my learning straight away, get immediate response what was right or wrong. This Programme is very very close to the BizBok, provides supplementary views, and what really showed up, was created with a lot of heart. I can (and will) recommend this to everyone, who wants to step on the Business Architecture road.

I was impressed by the quality of the training material offered by Agora Insight for the CBA training. The concepts are easily explained in a digestible format. I enjoyed the short format of each module because it allows you to master a concept in a concise way before moving on to the next concept. I sincerely believe that this is probably the best Business Architecture training available on the market.

Business Architecture Pathway Course

  • What certificate will I get if I complete this course?

    Learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from Agora Insights Ltd on successful completion of the course. Learner hours per module will be sent to the Business Architecture Guild®, on request, for those who want to gain CEUs.

  • How long will the course take?

    The course consists of 26 modules which are approximately 2.5 hours each. In total it should take the average student 65 hours to complete the video material. There are practice exam questions that can take 1- 2 hours per module, depending on your understanding.

  • Is the course live or on demand?

    The answer is both. The whole course is "on demand" and typically drip fed so that the learner can understand module by module. Additionally we offer optional live online mentoring sessions where learners can discuss the modules with the mentor. Typically the live sessions are scheduled, recorded and topic specific.

  • What are course modules?

    We have broken the course into modules to explain specific areas of business architecture, in one sitting. Considering the field of business architecture can be substantial, we thought it best to break it up into bite size modules. This allows you to go back and focus on a particular area if required.

  • will I be a CBA® after completing this course?

    You will get an Agora Insights certificate but we cannot issue you a CBA® certification. Agora Insights Ltd is a training partner and helps you prepare for the exam but does not offer the CBA® exam. Application, registration and taking the CBA® exam is offered by the Business Architecture Guild® which is a separate organisation. It is at the sole discretion of, and the responsibility of, the learner to apply and complete this process. Agora Insights Ltd takes no accountability for any process being operated and managed by the Business Architecture Guild® including the application, membership and CBA® exam outcomes.

  • How much does this course cost?

    We have several pricing options to suit your needs. This includes subscription payments, payment plans and once-off discounted plans. Please contact us if you have financial hardship, so that we can review your case.

  • How long will I have access to the course bundle?

    You will have access for 1 year from when you purchase the course. This includes access to the library and practice tests.
