EA and BPMN for Business Process Modelling

This course is designed for business analysts who are new to BPMN and Enterprise Architect.
Delegates are taught how to create hierarchical business process models within Enterprise Architect. This course is highly practical with many hands-on exercises
Duration: 1 day

Prerequisites: No prior BPMN or Enterprise Architect experience is required.
A background in business process modelling is helpful.
Equipment: For on-site course delivery the customer should provide a suitable training room with a projector to connect to our trainer's laptop and a whiteboard or flipchart. All delegates require access to a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect.

For webinar training sessions delegates need access to a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect with Internet connection and VoIP (a headset can be helpful for privacy in an office environment).

A trial version of Enterprise Architect is fine for training and can be downloaded from Sparx Systems website: www.sparxsystems.com/products/ea/trial.html

Course Style: 50% theory, 50% practical.
Each module is accompanied by paper and hands-on exercises to allow delegates to apply the theory and become confident using Enterprise Architect.
Delegate Handouts: Each delegate receives a folder containing all the course slides and comprehensive theory notes which form excellent reference material. Folders also contain exercises and suggested solutions. Following successful completion of the course each delegate receives a certificate.
