Welcome to The Open Group and thank you for choosing to deliver a training course about our standard.
Whether you wish to include a first Accredited Training Course or add an Accredited Training Course to your portfolio, the same approach applies; the legal documents that need to be signed and the fees are different though.
The Open Group training course accreditation like any other is built upon 3 components of compliance:
The Accreditation Team will take you through the process step-by-step.
You are about to start using The Open Group trademark and copyrights; the legal documents will help you understand how they can be used.
The first legal document required is the commercial license which can be included to your membership:
- ArchiMate® Commercial License
- DPBoK™ Commercial License
- IT4IT™ Commercial License
- Open Agile Architecture™ Commercial License
- Open FAIR™ Commercial License

Please note that there is a fee associated with a commercial license.

The Accreditation Team will complete these for you to sign.
