CBAP® / CCBA® Prep Course

A comprehensive business analysis course for preparing for CBAP or CCBA certification

Propel Your Career With Professional Certification

The CBAP® and CCBA® professional certification exams are challenging but they are not impossible to tackle. What you need is proper guidance on how best to prepare for this journey.

In this course, we will do just that. I will introduce you to the scope of all topics possible on these exams. We will walk through each Knowledge Area in great detail, reviewing the inputs/outputs, techniques, and competencies commonly used for each task. I'll break down the massive amounts of content into small packages of information you can use to properly streamline your studies.

We can discuss why certain decisions were made when building the guide, why certain terms were used over others, and why the tasks are structured as they are. You will build confidence in areas where you are less experienced and will excel in areas where your practices are mature - once freshening up your experience within the relevant topic areas covered on these exams.
