CEAP Yellow Belt Program

Certified Enterprise Architect Practitioner (CEAP) Yellow Belt Program

Certification through Demonstrated Competency



Are you looking to up-skill and learn how to be part of strategic change in your organization?

If so, you’re going to want to read on…



What is the CEAP Yellow Belt Program?

The FEAC Institute CEAP (Certified Enterprise Architect Practitioner) Yellow Belt program is your opportunity to build hands-on competency in addressing real problems that face your organization by understanding client and stakeholder concerns using models and analytical techniques.

We take a “learning by doing” and hands-on approach to our courses. Using proven methodologies and our approach to guided, practical learning, our experienced architects will mentor you while you learn by doing a real-life EA project using multiple Enterprise Architecture tools in hands-on practice. You will have all the help you need to get going with our provided, digital desktop and quick-start methodology.

Using a mix of video and facilitated sessions with real enterprise architecture modeling tools, you will move beyond speadsheets, visio diagrams and powerpoint drawings to develop knowledge of model-driven architecture. We are a vendor and framework neutral EA education company. Come learn how tools and frameworks support enterprise decision making as we provide multiple resource access to build your competency with hands on assignments and worksheets.

The Yellow Belt program will guide you in the skills you need to tailor these methodologies, tools and practice to become an internal consultant and meet your organization’s needs. We will show you how to diagnose real-world business challenges. You’ll then be able to use Enterprise Architecture to document your findings and structure stakeholder concerns into the language of architecture.

You will learn how to employ meta-models, views, and viewpoints while using actual EA tools and architecture description languages (ADL).
