CBAP/CCBA Exam Prep Workshop

Course Code

MQ830

Duration

4 Days

This workshop prepares participants to sit for the CBAP® Exam and/or the CCBA® Exam administered by the International Institute for Business Analysis (IIBA®). The workshop provides 28 classroom hours, thus meeting the 21 classroom contact hours required for the exam application.

In the workshop, a CBAP-certified instructor will lead participants through lectures, individual and group activities, and practice exams. The classroom format encourages questions, discussions, and dialogue that will assist each participant in mastering concepts for the exam. Participants are not required to have already applied for the exam through the IIBA® website. They will be led through the application process and are expected to complete the application process by the end of class. The class will conclude with participants taking a full exam simulating the test taking experience as closely as possible.

Each participant will receive a study guide, and other materials to supplement study methods. Note: Participants create their own flash cards with provided materials since writing definitions is proven to enhance memory. Although not reflected in the time and event outline below, the facilitator will "quiz" the participants on terminology throughout the workshop in a game-like approach.
This course is designed for participants preparing to sit for the CBAP and/or CCBA exams, BABOK version 2.
