I work as a senior business analyst and I have opted for the CBAP online self-learning course from Simplilearn. The course content is very comprehensive and easy to grasp. For working professionals like me, time is always a constraint and that is where the course content is so well designed that it spells out the important details with simplicity and explains the concepts clearly in a very short time.The coverage of the techniques is interesting and are explained in relevance to the specific knowledge areas. The course is available over mobile app as well which has helped me a lot as I travel quite often due to my work assignments.Overall I feel that the course is very comprehensive and I would recommend it for all aspiring CBAP certifiers.

Certified Business Analysis Program course material is quite extensive and videos were very intuitive. All the concepts were articulated very well. Two good experiences worth mentioning were - (1) In between there was an upgrade of the Learning Management System and the LMS was down for 3 days. To compensate for that they gave us an additional time of 1 month to complete the course. (2) I completed the course but forgot to download the certificate. I realized it only a couple of days after my access had expired. I requested that I be given access to the system for a couple of hours so that I can download the certificate. I was immediately given access to the system for 3 days - No questions asked. This was wonderful. Overall I would say, SimpliLearn is Simply Fabulous
