Enterprise Architecture Training Institute | Real IRM

Real IRM

Leading Enterprise Architecture Value™

Real IRM’s Enterprise Architecture (EA) Training Institute works with organisations needing to develop internal EA competency, and with individuals wanting to become practising enterprise architects.  By offering structured, comprehensive courses we enable our clients to deliver rapid, meaningful value to their companies while improving their own career prospects.

We focus on providing our client organisations a return on their educational investments. Through a partnership with Real IRM, organisations can develop career paths for their architects so that their learning is timed to match the needs of the organisation as well as the individual. This helps organisations to retain talent while creating a proficient team of architects.  Since the courses are practical, attendees are able to implement what they have learnt.  Real IRM also provides mentoring services aimed at bridging any gap between the theory and practice so that competent delivery is facilitated.

Real IRM’s EA Training Institute sets a roadmap for professional development within the discipline of EA.  A number of the courses include international certifications that are recognised globally and improve both the recipient’s professional standing and marketability.

Our courses are developed by EA practitioners so that they are highly relevant. The training material contains a number of case studies, examples and exercises making the theory practicable. Since Real IRM is the representative of The Open Group in South Africa, participated in the development of TOGAF® 9, and is a member of various international industry forums, we are in touch with the latest international theories and trends and thus provide our clients with current information and industry best practices.

Our educators are passionate, highly experienced enterprise architects who practice in the field as consultants. This experience helps to translate theoretical concepts into real-world application that takes practical implementation challenges into account and makes their teaching pertinent and comprehensible.

Real IRM’s Learning Management System (LMS) is geared to provide our training clients outstanding service. Delegates can download course-specific reference material while also having electronic access to their training history, course certificates, and the results of their class assessments. The LMS enables our blended learning environment where course material is packaged for e-learning so that delegates can complete training modules in their own time.
