Lifetime Pass: All Live Virtual PMI-PBA® Exam Prep Classes

Course Description

This is one of our CEO’s favorite Exam Prep courses because Senior Managers work alongside BA’s (Business Analysts) day in and day out. No one knows the pulse of the entire organization and its future like the Analysts who create Business Cases and engage stakeholders so regularly.  As our Chief would say, the best Board Members and Senior Managers understand business analytics on an intimate level. Our Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® Exam Prep Class is comprehensive, carefully designed, and focused on a single goal: Give You EVERYTHING you need to pass the Project Management Institute’s (PMI)® PMI-PBA® certification exam.

The PMI-PBA® certification is a tremendously powerful credential that demonstrates a thorough skill set and knowledge of business analysis that is unparalleled in it’s technical excellence. Anyone interested in how businesses function, assess needs, plan, analyze, grow, charter projects, work with stakeholders to elicit, track, and communicate requirements, facilitate meetings, utilize efficient tools to trace and monitor requirements and engage stakeholders, and cultivate/evaluate stakeholder success and satisfaction, is the perfect candidate to earn this credential.

This credential is a great first step or next step for those aspiring to learn how all business investments/projects function from gathering and interpreting data into information and reports through the entirety of its life-cycle. The PMI-PBA® is a strong combination with the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification. It’s also a very important part of the future of Project Management. This course covers all the key areas of required study for the certification exam. The exam is 200 questions, multiple-choice over 4 hours. The PMI-PBA® 200-question exam (can be taken from anywhere online, proctored) covers the following domains:




We teach one public “Professional in Business Analysis” (PMI-PBA®) curriculum (5-Week Classes).  Private PMI-PBA® courses are available to groups of 3 or more.  See FAQ’s here.
