Learn with FEAC

 

Our three-day Enterprise Architecture Skills Workshops are intended to give you the practical skills you need to build your confidence and credentials as a professional. We have developed short and focused workshops addressing some of the more common challenge areas being faced by professionals at varying levels of expertise. You can choose to attend one or two or all six workshops.  Each is designed to be a stand alone session with actionable information, templates and copies of the materials provided to all participants. 

Morning sessions begin at at 8:30am sharp and conclude at 11:30am. This leaves plenty of time for you to head back to work OR jump to a nearby resturant for a quick bite and return for an afternoon session. Our afternoon session starts promptly at 12:30pm and conclude at 3:30pm allowing you time to get over to the metro or quickly back onto I-66. Coffee and light breakfast items will be available in the morning as well as light snacks in the afternoon. OR you can avoid the whole challenge of commuting and simply participate online (home or office). Our courses are specifically designed to allow online participants to experience the same level of engagement by our education staff. The choice is yours.  

Our workshops can also qualify you for either Enterprise Architecture Development Units (EADU), Professional Development Units (PDU) or Continuing Development Units (CDU). A certificate of attendance will be provided along with submisson information immediately upon conclusion of the course. 

We have also value priced these offerings so that you can afford to attend mulitple course areas or attend in group from your organization.

A few things you need to know:

  • Morning sessions begin at at 8:30am sharp and conclude at 11:30am.
  • Afternoon session starts promptly at 12:30pm and conclude at 3:30pm
  • There is a wireless internet connection available but we ask you to refrain from surfing during class lectures.
  • Dress is casual.
  • The room number will be posted at the entrances of the Building.
  • Coffee and light breakfast items will be available in the morning as well as light snacks in the afternoon.
  • For lunch, restaurants are within walking distance and guidance will be provided. There is a nice Indian restaurant, a Starbucks, Baja Fresh and Subway across the street. There is also an eating area on the first floor by the elevators. There is a microwave there and vending machines that include coffee, cold drinks, sandwiches and snacks.

Physical Location:

  • UVA/VT Northern VA campus located at:
  • Room number will be posted at the entrances of the Building.
  • There are several hotels close by. One thing to keep in mind if you are NOT driving or renting a car. The Falls Church Metro Station (ORANGE LINE) is about 100 yards from the UVA Northern Campus. So as long as the hotel you pick is close to an ORANGE LINE Metro Station, you can take the Metro each day to Falls Church, walk 100 yards uphill and to the right to the clearly visible UVA building.
  • If you are driving, there is plenty parking at UVA available for you at a cost of $4.50 all day. To get there make a left left from Haycock Road at the traffic light (coming from Route 7). At the stop sign (30 yards) do not turn right or you end up at the Metro Station but continue straight as if you are going to the new Metro garage down on the right. Actually you can see the Parking lot you are going to on the left at the stop sign but there is a chain across the entrance. You can not enter there. About 100 yards after the stop sign you need to turn left into the UVA/VT parking lot (NOT THE METRO GARAGE BUILDING ON THE RIGHT) and drive all the way up to the UVA Brick Building.
