About the course


This bundle will give you two qualifications:

  • the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis.
  • the IIBA Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP™).

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.


How do you achieve both qualifications? 

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.

How does the bundle work?

You can book the bundle anytime. There is no specific starting date.

You also don’t have to choose all your course dates when you make the booking.

Our courses combine lectures, exercises, case studies and practice examination papers. You will gain a firm grasp of the theory, apply it in realistic situations and be well equipped for the exams. You don’t just pass the BCS exams; you also develop practical, useful skills that you will be able to use in your Business Analyst role.

The Diploma in Business Analysis Bundle is designed for delegates who want to achieve the International Diploma in Business Analysis qualification. To get this qualification you need to pass an oral exam with BCS examiners. To qualify for this oral exam first you need to pass the exam for 4 individual modules.Our Business Analysis Diploma Bundle contains the following 4 modules: Business Analysis Practice, Requirements Engineering, Commercial Awareness or Foundation in Business Analysis and, either Systems Development Essentials or Modelling Business Processes. Each course is a separate, self-contained unit leading to an individual exam and a BCS Business Analysis Practitioner certificate qualification. You can attend the courses during the week or at weekends, and choose the dates depending on your availability and time constraints.

Most of our delegates start with Business Analysis Practice or Requirements Engineering as they are the core modules of the diploma – if you have no previous experience in the field we would recommend that you do the same. However, if you are already working as a business analyst or have relevant experience, you can take the modules in whichever order suits you best. Please give us a call on 020 7272 3726 if you would like to discuss which order would be most appropriate for you.

The main advantage of the programme is cost as it’s considerably cheaper to do the Diploma than to pay for each course separately.Another advantage to the Diploma programme is the motivation you’ll get from committing to do the whole diploma. Delegates who book onto the programme usually become qualified business analysts much quicker than those who do it on a course by course basis.

The same material is covered in both courses but because we fit the weekend course into two days instead of three it is more intense. The weekend courses begin at 9 am and finish at 6:30 pm, with a few short breaks; the midweek courses start at 9:30 am and finish at 5 pm, with an hour break for lunch.

Most of our delegates take the exam immediately after finishing the course (on the last day), but if you prefer you can take it at a later date. We run exams every Thursday evenings at 18:00 and some weekends (please contact us to check availability).

I thought the course was the BEST professional course that I have been on! I really learned a lot, and feel that Requirement Engineering in particular is the couuse that will set my career in the correct direction.
