What is the CEAP Yellow Belt Program?

The FEAC Institute CEAP (Certified Enterprise Architect Practitioner) Yellow Belt program is your opportunity to build on your skills in addressing 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.

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).

Sound good so far?
