What is the difference between the DoDAF and FEA(F) Certification programs?

UPDATED 12/19: We offer a rigorous Certification program that is focused around all Enterprise Architecture discipline notions, Business Analysis and Enterprise Analytics. We have found that there are two Methodological Frrameworks that derive the most immediate and comprehensive benefit across the Private Sector as well as Government. These are the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework FEA(F).

The FEA(F) is primarily for those who work in the private sector or are contractors supporting civilian government agencies.

The DoDAF is for those working in or contractors to the Department of Defense, as well as, anyone wanting to learn to use the architecture methods, products and views of the DoDAF. We teach how to build many of the DoDAF 2.0 plus products using the most up to date version of the framework and include JCIDS, CADM, CMM, IEA, and relevant modeling methods.

For those working in commercial organizations we have merged the former Commercial Enterprise Architecture Certification (CEAC) with the FEA(F) and added a TOGAF component. The FEA(F) Program covers a broad spectrum of EA, including, the Zachman® Framework, DoDAF, EAP, SABSA and touches on SOA (Service Oriented Architecture in the context of EA) and other frameworks. Many of these approaches can and are being adapted by the business sector.

You will learn both of these Frameworks as part of our CEA Black Belt Program or ACEA Green Belt Program and a Framework of your choice will be selected for your practicum project.

In summary, FEAC™ teaches our students to become real Enterprise Architects practitioners, regardless where they work.
