Examination Test Centers

The Open Group offers  examination tests for the ArchiMate 2, Open FAIR, TOGAF 8, and TOGAF 9 certification for people programs.

The ArchiMate 2 and TOGAF 9 certification examinations are available through two channels, via Accredited Training Course providers that offer the examination, and also through Prometric at its test centers worldwide. Please note that not all Accredited TOGAF Training Course providers offer the examinations, some prefer to offer vouchers to attend a Prometric test center. Please check with your accredited training course provider.

The Simplified Chinese versions of the TOGAF 9 examinations are available through Prometric test centers only in China.

The Brazilian Portuguese versions of the TOGAF 9 examinations are available through Prometric test centers only in Brazil.

The Open FAIR and TOGAF 8  examinations are available only at Prometric test centers.

Appointment Times

A common area of confusion for candidates is that the length of the appointment at the test center and the length of the examination  are not the same. If you are taking a TOGAF exam at a Prometric test center please see the Advice to Candidates sheet (pdf) , and please note that if applicable you must explicitly select the ESL version of the exam at the time of booking.

Examination Tips

Open Book Examinations at Prometric Test Centers

Please note that if you are taking an "Open Book" examination at a Prometric test center, then the reference book (e.g., TOGAF 9) is always built into the examination itself, and available by selecting the "Reference" button within the examination.

Retake Policy

The Open Group certification policy for each program has a minimum period before you can retake an examination. This is typically one month. If you retake before that period your test result will be void. It should be noted that for the TOGAF program, this applies to all TOGAF examinations, so for example, if you fail the Part 1 section of the TOGAF 9 Combined Part 1 and Part 2 examination, you would still need to wait at least one month before taking just the Part 1 examination.
