More information...

Why can I not find Business Analysis Essentials?

This has been renamed BCS Business Analysis Practice.  Until recently, many people assumed that the best introductory course was Business Analysis Essentials.

It is in fact a practitioner level course which sets Business Analysis in broad strategic context.

Is the Business Analysis Foundation Course a pre-requisite for the BCS Diploma?

No. However it is the best starting point for those with little background in Business Analysis since it provides an overview of all the main topics.  Those who already work in Business Analysis may find the Foundation teaches them little. Under the latest qualification structure, it does count towards the Diploma as a “specialist” option.

What other Business Analysis Certifications are worth considering?

Apart from the BCS, consider the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA). Their courses cover similar content – though perhaps with greater concentration on “Requirements”.

Their CBAP certification is not widely recognised in the UK but can be useful for those working for organisations based in North America. We can provide IIBA training but there are few public scheduled courses.

Is the exam fee included in the price of a course?

Yes. Focus prices for the various BCS classroom courses include the exam fee.  Take care when looking at non Focus options: trainers will sometimes present the exam as an optional extra. If you do not need the exam then let us know.

Which order should I take the modules for the BCS Diploma?

It is not essential to take the modules in a given order.  Most people prefer to take Business Analysis Practice or Requirements Engineering first since they deliver very practical skills and help provide a framework for broader understanding of Business Analysis.
