We are replacing the CBAP and CCBA certification classes

 

  




Red Rock is discontinuing our CBAP/CCBA program in favor of the new new PMI-PBA Professional in Business Analysis certification.  We feel it provides more value to the industry for the following reasons:

1. The registration process is strait forward and fair.
2. The PMI-PBA framework is more comprehensible and practical.
3. The PMI-PBA compliments the PMBOK® Guide, allowing Business Analysts to work side-by-side with Project Management Professionals (PMP's) without confusing responsabilities.
4. For professionals wanting to be a part of a professional organization who also have existing PMI certifications, they need only belong to PMI, and won't need to pay membership fees to two organizations.

Testing centers are typically associated with schools in the area and as such are open or closed in conjunction with their school calendar. 

Should I become a member of IIBA?

Membership in IIBA has many benefits.  Membership presently costs $95.00/year.  The most immediate benefit for becoming a member of IIBA is the cost of membership plus taking the CBAP exam is slightly less than the cost of the test alone for non-members.  Red Rock recommends you become a member of IIBA.

Should I start my CBAP application before coming to class?

Preferably, you should start your CBAP application and finish it before class begins.  This is because the IIBA can take FROM 15 to 30 days to respond to your application.  If you wait until class starts you will be pushing back the soonest you can take the tests by at least this time.  This being said, people sometimes do show up on day 1 without starting their application.

How can I show people I have passed the CBAP? Is there an official CBAP registry?

Yes.  IIBA maintains a public list of CBAP credential holders.  You can find it  here.
