Business Analysis CBAP® Certification

Exam Preparation Course

CBAP Exam Preparation Overview

The profession of Business Analysis continues to experience unprecedented growth and recognition in both a predictive and adaptive project environment. A consequence of this growth is increased reliance upon Business Analysts to deliver requirements with a focus on value. As companies increasingly adopt Business Analysis frameworks and practices the demand for knowledgeable practitioners increases.

The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®) has launched a certification program to globally recognise professionals in the field of business analysis. The multi-tiered program recognises Business Analyst Professionals who can demonstrate knowledge, skill, ability and their support of the growth of the profession.

Our intention is not to teach participants how to perform Business Analysis tasks or produce Business Analysis deliverables, but to guide you through the certification process, and prepare you for the Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP®) exam.

PM-Partners 5-day certification program provides participants with the required 35 Professional Development Hours for the CBAP Application process. Our course also provides participants with an approach to studying for the CBAP exam.
