Each qualification stands alone and, in various combinations (IREB and IIBA qualifications also give partial exemptions), leads to the International BCS Diploma in Business Analysis. The delegates can take the four courses over as short a time as eight consecutive days or as several sessions spread over a year.

The courses can be taken at dates and in any order to suit you.
