Business Analyst Training, Mentoring and Coaching

This course is mainly based on hands learning and covers a range of concepts, approaches and techniques that are applicable to Business Analysts. You will learn the processes of Requirement Engineering, identify issues in systems, develop effective business strategies, Stakeholder Management, Mapping Processes, Documentation, Business Activity Modelling, Identify Solutions, Leadership, Communication, and critical thinking. The knowledge of tools for managing requirement is also essential.

The training runs for 20 weeks (8 weeks Theory and 12 weeks Practical). There are 2 stages to the training, the online classroom session and the online practical work experience part of the training.

You will be assigned a team to deliver a project, Projects run for 12weeks approximately depending on the project. Don’t worry,  you will have guidance all the way. This way you gain practical work experience.

There are no prerequisites for the Business Analysis training course. We have had delegates with no previous experience that enrolled for this program and successfully secured a job once completed. If you are a professional looking to change career and are passionate about business improvement, then the BA program is the one for you.

This training is also designed to give candidates the opportunity to deliver a project from inception to completion (Full life cycle project). The Training is an interactive training where there will be discussions and brainstorming sessions and you will be guided through delivering the projects that have been assigned.

The training runs for Sixteen (16) weeks. For the first Eight (8) weeks, delegates will focus on Online training classes (on Saturdays) through case studies. The next twelve (12) weeks would see the candidates implementing their acquired skills by working remotely on a live project.

The BA will also have had the full end to end delivery experience on a project which will now go into their CV as references for work they have delivered.

We will also ensure that the BA’s CV is well aligned with industry standards.

We believe this is a strategic move to further empower individuals wishing to go into this field of work as we can provide them with REAL PROJECTS to deliver.
