PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)®

4 days

 

Business analysis has become a competency of critical importance to project management. Becoming certified as a business analysis (BA) expert can move your career in a fresh direction while opportunities for BAs are on the rise.

Inaccurate requirements gathering consistently ranks in the top three causes of project failure yet only half of organizations have the resources in place to perform this function properly, according to our Pulse of the Profession® research.

It’s time to become the certified expert your organization needs. If you work with stakeholders in defining requirements, shaping project outputs and driving intended business outcomes, the PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® will spotlight your valuable skills.

 

 

Gain and Maintain Your PMI-PBA

  • The certification exam has 200 multiple-choice questions and you have four hours to complete it.
  • To maintain your PMI-PBA, you must earn 60 professional development units (PDUs) in business analysis topics every three years.

NOTE:

If you’re thinking about getting your Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® certification, be aware that the exam will be changing on 25 June 2018.

We update our certification exams every time we release a new foundational standard or practice guide that is used as a reference for the certification exam. In this case, we released The PMI Guide to Business Analysis in December 2017. The PMI-PBA exam will be updated to harmonize with terminology in the new standard.

Please note that the current PMI-PBA exam content outline (based on the 2014 role delineation study) will remain unchanged at this time.
