This bundle will give you two qualifications:
the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis.
the IIBA Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP™).
Delegates who have more than 2.5 years of relevant Business Analysis experience can choose this option. BCS provides a specialised approach that equips you with best practice tools and techniques whilst CBAP offers a generalised and comprehensive standard that is based on 6 knowledge areas. The CBAP qualification emphasises more the process that a business analyst should follow and the techniques used at various stages while the BCS Business Analysis Diploma diploma provides the tools and lets you decide when to use them according to your project.
The CBAP qualification exempts delegates from two BCS business analysis certification: BCS Requirements Engineering and the foundation certificate. This means that alongside the CBAP certification, a delegate only needs two more BCS Courses + the Oral Examination to achieve the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis.

I trained with Metadata for the full BCS Business Analysis Diploma course and could only attend 1 module at the classroom due to Coronavirus. The rest were completed virtually via Zoom, but this didn't have impact with regards to learning the syllabus. The Metadata office has been very accommodating with scheduling and changing dates of courses, and the tutors were excellent providing great insight. I would highly recommend Metadata.
