Overview

Get four BCS Business Analysis certifications in just six days – that’s 40% faster than traditional training. You’ll take four BCS accredited courses and exams, each of which results in a professional qualification.

The BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis is an internationally recognised qualification that proves you have the knowledge, skills and flexible capabilities to be effective as a business analyst. To achieve this qualification, you must pass four BCS certifications which are included in the course. You must also pass an oral exam. This is not included in the course and you must book this through BCS.

This course has been built for both experienced practitioners and those new to business analysis. You’ll get the following certifications:

  • BCS Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis
    Get the fundamental knowledge in business analysis principles, techniques, approaches and concepts.

  • BCS Practitioner Certificate in Requirements Engineering
    Learn to understand and explain the requirements engineer approach and adopt relevant techniques.

  • BCS Practitioner Certificate in Modelling Business Processes
    You’ll apply business process modelling analysis techniques and understand a framework for business process improvement.

  • BCS Practitioner Certificate in Business Analysis Practice
    As part of this certification you’ll learn how to use a holistic approach to the investigation and improvement of business situations.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 6 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 106662 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
