AgileBA® Certification Course.

Developed by APMG in partnership with the DSDM Consortium, AgileBA is a new guidance, training and certification scheme designed for business analysts working in an agile environment.

The Business Analyst is a critical role within an agile project team and with more and more organizations adopting agile approaches, we need to ensure those performing this crucial role have the necessary skills and expertise.

AgileBA® certification is available at Foundation and Practitioner levels; these are accessed via one combined Foundation/Practitioner course, a Foundation Exam and an optional Practitioner Exam; total duration is 4 days.

Passing the Foundation Exam is a pre-requisite for sitting the Practitioner Exam.

The course consists of a number of lessons that cover the official syllabus of AgileBA® Foundation and Practitioner; it also includes a number of targeted exercises as well as individual and group activities.
The fourth and last day of the course is dedicated to preparing and sitting both the Foundation Exam (in the morning) and the optional Practitioner Exam (in the afternoon).

Includes official textbook.


There are no pre-requisites for attending the course and sitting the AgileBA® Foundation examination.
