ON AVANCIER TRAINING
I really enjoyed your course and [have since] found the material you presented very useful.” Solutions Architect

“Really good and provided me with new views on EA and SA – one of the best trainings I attended.” Enterprise Architect

“Your exam preparation really useful (a key objective for me).” Consultant

 “It is amazing how my conversations have changed! On Monday I had three conversations that [made me] realise the positive effect the course has had… many things I now understand that I had only the smallest glimmer of before.” Infrastructure architect.

thank you for an interesting and stimulating course. It covered a lot of what I was expecting and more, and opened my eyes to architecture questions and concerns I need to be more familiar with.... Your anecdotes and examples helped make what is often a dry subject more interesting... [it] really helped me to grab the fundamentals of what it takes to be an Enterprise Architect.” Business intelligence architect

"[the training] explains what others (TOGAF, CMU…) leave obscure."
