The IIBA® Palmetto Chapter is leading Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK® Guide) study sessions for individuals looking to write one of the ECBA®, CCBA® and CBAP® exams or to enhance their practical knowledge and understanding of Business Analysis.  We will be conducting our inaugural program this year that will span a four-month period consisting of 17 sessions.  Below are the details of those sessions along with a link to register.
When:  Every Tuesday Evening from July 31, 2018 through November 20, 2018 – 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Where:  Virtual Classroom using Zoom meeting software that will record each session in case you miss one or you want to review after a session.
Logistics:  You will need a computer with Internet access, and a headset with headphones and microphone that can connect to your computer or to a telephone.  You should not use speakerphone or any type of audio where the voices of others can be heard through your microphone.
Materials:  Out study group content will be based on the BABOK® Guide v3.  Access to a free downloadable copy is a benefit of IIBA membership and available on the IIBA® website (http://www.iiba.org/babok-guide.aspx).
Format:  All sessions will be led by an Instructor (with Facilitator support) and participants will have the ability to interact with the Instructor and other students.  A CBAP® will be invited to one or more sessions as needed to respond to questions and add insight from their experience and expertise.  To further instill business analysis knowledge, a case study will be referenced, and quizzes utilized at the end of each session.  All study group participants are expected to have read the material before the session and be prepared to contribute to the discussion. 
Regular attendance is required for participation in this study group.  Attendance will be taken at each session and a Certificate of Completion will be provided to those who have attended at least 15 of the 17 sessions and will reflect actual Contact Hours.  Each session offers 2 Professional Development/Contact Hours.
After the sessions have concluded, our Chapter will provide assistance as needed with the IIBA Certification Application Process together with recognition at IIBA® Palmetto Chapter Meetings when Certifications are obtained by our Study Group Participants.
