Enterprise and Solution Architecture (ESA) course variations

Our public courses in London run all three courses in parallel, but each course is also run on its own.

4 day ICESA course

The ICESA course price includes one examination fee, for the BCS Intermediate certificate in ESA (£155 + VAT).

The focus is on understanding architectural terms and concepts. There are class exercises but no case study.

5 day IPCESA course

The combined IPCESA course price includes two examination fees, for BCS Intermediate and Practitioner certificates in ESA (£310 + VAT).

This course includes both class exercises and case study work. The practitioner exam is based on the case study.
