The IASA Architecture Foundations 101/102 Intensive training course is being administered in Irvine May 17-21. The course has been vetted by our Board of Education, and will be instructed by our VP of Education, Andy Ruth. For those who don’t know Andy, he “owned” the roll of architect at Microsoft, and created the MCA (Microsoft Certified Architect) while he was there.
Though the course has been taught onsite for several organizations, this is the first time that IASA has administered the 101/102 combined course as an Open Enrollment, allowing individuals to register.
The feedback from architects of all levels has been great, with participants expressing the value of the course. Here’re a few quotes from people who attended a recent training course:
“Both courses have wonderful content to provide a solid grounding on what IT Architecture means, the definition of an IT Architect, the foundational skills required to be an Architect & the necessary factors to consider while establishing an Engagement Model for the IT Architecture practice. The skills assessment tool provided by 101 course is an invaluable benchmark that I feel every Architect should carry along and utilize through their career.
The various workshops in the courses have very practical real world relevance and just racking one’s brains through discussions over those workshops I feel pays for the course!
The course does set one up to be more sure footed in their day-to-day Architecture duties back at work – almost everyone should be able to take away 1 thing to “go do” right away.
Over a period of 5 intense days, one builds a close relationship with fellow trainees – a big plus for networking and understanding diverse practices across companies.” “Even as a senior experienced architect, I learned something on the first day of the course that I did not know, and took it to my management to change our internal process and architecture engagement model to be more effective.”
“While I found value in other Architect training I’ve taken, the IASA course showed me how to be an effective architect (for my personal career path and my employer’s benefit) regardless of tools or Framework”--every architect in my group needs to take this training!”
Each course has a limited occupancy of 16, and most courses are expected to sell out—you’ll want to book your spot today.
The course will be administered at a cost of $3,000—they are offering group discounts for organizations that send more than 5 architects. For more information, or to register, visit http://www.iasahome.org/web/home/foundation , or contact Colin Cairns email@example.com; 512-909-9855
