If you don’t pass the exam then you’re able to retake it straight away. You can retake the exam as many times as you need to, and we’re always here to offer extra support to anyone that needs it. We pride ourselves on our high pass rate, and for whatever the reason you didn’t pass, we’ll make sure that you do the second time!

Many delegates report increased confidence in their skills after the training. We believe the importance of confidence is often underrated in organisations. The truth is to progress your career in the right direction you need confidence. It is no surprise many of our learners report an increase in confidence and job satisfaction.  Moreover, the certification gives you recognition and if you are already working as a business analyst it will formalise your knowledge. As a result your employers, stakeholders or clients will trust you that you can deliver quality work in an efficient way.
