The 3-hour long CBAP exam is available in both written and electronic mode. There are 120 questions based on BABOK Guide v3.
The distribution of the weightage for the CBAP certification exam is as follows: Requirement Analysis and Design Definition – 30% Requirements Life Cycle Management – 15% Strategy Analysis – 15% Business Analysis Planning and Monitoring – 14% Solution Evaluation – 14%
Yes, the certification program is aligned with the ISO 17024 standard.
No, this business analyst course from IIBA is presently not available in any other language apart from English.
With the advent of the BABOK Guide version 3, the scope of business analysis has been broadened beyond the scope of just IT projects. A MOU between IIBA and Agile Alliance which governs the Agile Manifesto has ensured that the new version 3 now covers the practice of business analysis through the context of Agile development.
For anyone who has done the IIBA's CBAP business analyst course certification prior to September 30, 2016, you will follow the recertification guidelines as set forth in the CBAP Recertification Handbook. New recertification requirements will be communicated to anyone who gets certified from September 30, 2016, onwards.
