Earn PD hours for ECBA application *

As per IIBA guidelines,

  • Online courses (without actual instructor) will only qualify for PD hours needed for ECBA application (and not for CCBA or CBAP).
  • You only get 1 PD hour for 1 hour of course content. So, for 7 hours of whole course (all 7 parts), you will earn 7 PD hours for ECBA application.
  • For rest of PD hours, you can attend other online courses in business analysis and also claim hours spent on studying BABOK Guide.

Please note that course does not cover 50 most commonly used business analysis techniques (described in chapter 10 of BABOK guide v3.0), as it is difficult to provide explanation (with examples) for these many techniques in an online course. However, participants would be able to study use of techniques from the provided downloadable PDF file.

Please also note that the course does not cover 5 perspectives (described in chapter 11 of BABOK guide v3.0), as there shall be no questions on them in the exam (as clarified by IIBA in one of their webinars). However, CBAP/ CCBA aspirants are advised to go through them directly from BABOK guide v3.0.

Trividh Patel, CBAP

Instructor response

Thank you for attending all 7 parts (Part 1 - Part 7) and congratulations on passing IIBA CBAP exam! Well done.

Kristi Whiteaker


The course is fine but it's sometimes difficult to understand what is being asked in the questions at the end of the sections due to the way it is grammatically stated.

Trividh Patel, CBAP

Instructor response

Thank you for the feedback. Actual CBAP (or CCBA) exam would have questions that would require you to read them at least twice before answering them. However, we can surely improve quizzes if you can share specific quiz and question number. Thank you for attending all 7 parts (Part 1 - Part 7) of the IIBA Certification Course.

Samuel Ajala


The Course is good, however, there needs to be more scenarios and examples.

Kateryna Cherkashyna


Good structure of the course, clear and understandable. Very helpful quizzes after each tasks that provides understanding in which area you have gaps so you can go back and review it again. I use this course as a preparation for the CBAP examination. This course based on the BABOK because examination questions will be based on the BABOK as well. Do not expect that you will learn something new or different from the BABOK guide - it is same, but well summarized and with quizzes to check your knowledge. I like it!!!
