Guild Accredited Training Partners®


As the discipline of business architecture is maturing, particularly now that the Certified Business Architect® program is in place, organizations and business architecture practitioners are looking for ways to identify which training providers align to A Guide to the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge® (BIZBOK® Guide). The Business Architecture Guild offers a Guild Accredited Training Partner® (GATP®) program to evaluate training provider course offerings for alignment to the BIZBOK® Guide.

The GATP® program benefits business architecture community by providing:

  • Organizations and business architecture practitioners a way to chart a course for professional development by reviewing all training topic areas and then selecting applicable courses to incorporate into development plans
  • Organizations a way to more easily evaluate the foundational knowledge a candidate has when applying for a business architecture position
  • Training providers a way to promote course offerings, which are aligned with a standard body of knowledge
  • The business architecture industry a way to ensure that the knowledge and skills being developed by the business architecture community are aligned with industry standards, leading to consistent practices. This will enable the discipline to further mature and focus on more complex aspects of business architecture
