What is it?
The ECBA+™ (Entry Certificate in Business Analysis™+) Program includes hands-on experience to raise proficiency levels from knowledge to application, for targeted skills. Delivery of the ECBA+ Program will be facilitated via IIBA® Endorsed Education Provider™ (EEP™) and Academic Program members. IIBA surveyed our corporate partners to identify those skills that are both aligned with the BABOK® Guide and in most demand by the corporate partner during the first year of employment.
IIBA launched the core business analysis (BA) Level 1 certification program – Entry Certificate in Business Analysis™ (ECBA™). This 'no prior experience required’ certificate establishes core principles for individuals entering the Business Analysis profession.
