The CBAP is for professionals who analyze business processes and are responsible for defining business requirements throughout the development cycle.
You must first pass the screening process to verify that you are qualified to take the exam. This consists of an application that details your experiences as a business analyst and two references. Once approved, the exam is 150 questions and three hours long. Applications, exam locations, and training options are available from www.theiiba.org
The cost of the application and exam is $450.00 USD (for IIBA members) or $575 USD (for non-members).
Recertification is required every three years and can be achieved through any BA related professional development.
