Enterprise Architecture using FEAF Certification and Training

Enterprise Architecture Certification and Training using FEAF

Take your career to the next level with the coveted CEA (Certified Enterprise Architect) Black Belt or ACEA (Associate Certified Enterprise Architect) Green Belt certifications in Enterprise Architecture, or our Foundations in Enterprise Architecture Bootcamp using the FEAF Framework. Whether you are brand new to EA, or a seasoned professional needing a refresher, our courses will broaden your understanding of Enterprise Architecture and modelling.

Any education or certification in Enterprise architecture must have a Framework or methodology as the foundation of it's instruction. This is a rigorous certification program in Enterprise Architecture education using the FEAF Framework. FEAF is the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework and is ideal for any commercial or private sector application, International organizations as well as Federal agencies. FEAF is used as the base Framework and Methodology in this highly sought-after certification, based on practice (not just test prep) in real-life Enterprise Architecture.

Designed to be practical and immediately applicable for the working IT Professional, the FEAC Institute's world-renown certification programs are the longest running EA programs in the country. Only FEAC offers the CEA designation!

Live or totally online, we don't just prepare you to take a test. This is real, University-backed Enterprise Architecture and competency-based learning. You'll do a real practicum project and solve real problems.

 

The FEAC Institute has been training and certifying Enterprise Architects for nearly 15 years. If you want to be the best... learn from the best!

 

 FEAF Learning

 

Many organizations invest significant dollars in attempting to apply the discipline of Enterprise Architecture without the benefit of fully qualified staff to do the analysis and the EA modeling and program support activities to make it work. This increases the risk and likelihood of failure, for them and/or their clients. FEAC™ Certification of your staff ensures the keys to complex projects’ success residing in understanding and leveraging the culture of the organization, tying into the budgeting processes, developing a realistic Statement of Work (SOW), selling it internally, implementing and integrating program elements, and measuring progress. For the Government, it also involves linking Enterprise Architecture to the CPIC, Exhibits 300 & 53, security, and to other ongoing OMB directed initiatives.

The FEAC™ Institute understands all of these various needs, whether government or private sector, and can build the skills needed to succeed in your Enterprise Architecture program, project, career or community. We offer the following certifications for different levels of educational needs:

Applicants must possess the ability to undertake college-level study. A general knowledge of business, program or IT planning and conceptual thinking abilities are desirable. Each course within these programs offers separate assignments and exams, but they are taught in relative consecutive order. Courses are often taken while students hold full-time jobs but are extremely intensive and, therefore, require a great deal of effort outside of daily life. There are two weeks and two days required attendance in person, away from your work, spaced weeks apart.
