Business Architecture Distance Learning FAQ


All About Our Distance Learning Certification Workshops

BACOE’s distance learning certification is essentially the same learning experience as the in-person, practitioner-led workshops at any public location, but with the advantage of being able to go through the certification process via the Internet.

The five-day session is live and runs Monday through Friday.

It’s accessible anywhere you have a computer and an Internet connection.

With this live online certification, you’ll get the benefit from instructor interactions, case studies, team break-out “rooms” and more.

Online workshops use the same presentation materials as the in-person workshops. You’ll gain insight on such topics as:

  • Business Architecture as strategy
  • Federal Business Architecture
  • Business Process management
  • Business Process modeling and mapping
  • Business Architecture Framework

You’ll receive feedback in addition to your Business Architect Certification at the conclusion of the distance learning workshop, just as you would if you had attended a public workshop in person.

Being online doesn’t mean that this is a passive experience; you’ll still participate in useful, practical hands-on activities.

Schedule a customized “private” workshop at your convenience to certify everyone on your team live and all at once.

What is Distance Learning Business Architect Certification?

Distance Learning Business Architect Certification provides the best BA Certification available, and is the newest offering from BACOE. Without ever leaving the home or office, workshop participants attend the certification with a live instructor in a virtual classroom. Available via Internet, BA students access the virtual classroom remotely using state-of-the-art web conferencing technology which has been devised with maximum interaction as the goal. Be prepared: this online course is NOT passive. You’ll receive live instructor-led training along with feedback, and will interact with your instructor as well as participate in interactive activities.

Why Does BACOE Offer a Distance Learning Option?

The simple answer: demand. Additionally, current technology now makes it possible to virtually simulate a live classroom environment, providing a superior experience to that of self-paced learning. BACOE recognizes that individuals and businesses aren’t always able to travel to public workshops in person, especially those from remote and geographically diverse areas. We saw the need and responded with the opportunity that offers attendees the ability to become Certified Business Architects right from their own desks. In addition to the convenience of a certification workshop you can attend from your home or office, distance learning saves money by eliminating travel costs and time spent out of the office. We’ve found that this format better benefits individuals as well as small teams by bringing BACOE’s Business Architecture Certification workshop to them. Our live, on-site workshops are always available, but consider the distance learning workshop alternative if your organization doesn’t have enough team members who can all break away for an entire week to attend an in-person workshop.

How can I enroll in a Distance Learning Certification Workshop?

You are able to enroll in a Workshop the same way as our more traditional Workshop – on our web site.
