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 5 hours of whole course, you will earn 5 PD hours for ECBA application.
  • For rest of PD hours, you can attend other online courses in business analysis (such as Fundamentals of Requirements Elicitation, Use Case Modelling etc) 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).

Good, concise guide and lots of repetitive statements to ensure understanding. Before doing the section on exam application, I thought this course was adequate to apply to do the ECBA exams.
