Enterprise Architect


No prior Enterprise Architect or UML experience is required


Enterprise Architect

For webinar delivery delegates require a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect with an Internet connection (a headset can be helpful). If you wish to test your environment join a test WebEx meeting:

A trial version of Enterprise Architect is fine for training and can be downloaded from Sparx Systems website: It is also helpful to have a mouse as this makes creating diagrams much easier.

Course Style:

50% theory, 50% practical
Each module is accompanied by hands-on exercises to allow delegates to apply the theory and become confident using Enterprise Architect.

Delegate Handouts:

Each delegate receives a booklet containing all the course slides and comprehensive theory notes which form excellent reference material. Booklets also contain exercises and suggested solutions. Following successful completion of the course each delegate receives a certificate.

Course Modules:

  • Delegate background and objectives
