Before taking this course, students should fulfill the Project Management Institute (PMI®) requirements for business analysis and general project experience. We recommend students read about these requirements in the PMI-PBA®Handbook.
This course provides 28 of the required 35 contact hours needed to fulfill the PMI business analysis training requirements. We offer many other PM and BA courses that earn PMI PDUs to meet the full 35 hour requirement.
A separate application to take the PMI-PBA® examination is required. We recommend that participants begin their PMI-PBA® application before taking this course, although it is not necessary.
