About ArchiMate

ArchiMate®, an Open Group Standard, is an open and independent modelling language for Enterprise Architecture that is supported by different tool vendors and consulting firms. ArchiMate provides instruments to enable Enterprise Architects to describe, analyze and visualize the relationships among business domains in an unambiguous way.

Please note that the ArchiMate 3 certification program is currently under development and in beta during 4Q2016. It will be generally available in 1Q2017. This will include People certification and Tools certification. ArchiMate 3 certification has its own requirements and will necessitate different exams. There will be a bridging path for individuals who have the ArchiMate 2 Certified qualification. More information is available in the ArchiMate 3 Conformance Requirements document. Tools suppliers with ArchiMate 2 certified tools will be able to have their tools certified against the ArchIMate 3.0 requirements once the new program is available. For the moment ArchiMate 2 Tool certification remains the current version.
