3.1 Relationship to Other Courses

If this Training Course is operated under the same quality system as a ArchiMate 2 Training Course that you provide that is already accredited, or for which accreditation is in process, please identify that course here:

NOT APPLICABLE

Rationale:
Course providers may wish to accredit several courses that are operated under the same quality system. The Certification Authority need only assess the quality system once.

If this Training Course is operated under the same quality system as a TOGAF 9 Training Course that you provide that is already accredited, or for which accreditation is in process, please identify that course here:

TOGAF 9 Course for the Practitioners v9.1

Rationale:
Course providers may wish to accredit an ArchiMate 2 Training Course under the same quality system as a pre existing accredited TOGAF9 training course. The Certification Authority may be able to reduce the depth of assessment of the quality system if the only changes have been editorial to include ArchiMate 2 as well as TOGAF 9 in the documentation.
