IIBA Competency Framework
Ever since the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®) announced a new multi-level, competency-based certification framework, there have been a lot of questions as to the differences between the levels. The IIBA designed the levels to allow BA professionals to demonstrate their ability to perform and to prove they can apply their experience in a given situation. The program includes four levels of credentials, three of which involve a written examination process. So, which one is right for you?
The four levels of credentials follow a BA’s career path and are meant to be a guide, but you do not need to complete them in order. For example, if you already have the experience and requirements of a CBAP®, you do not need to complete the ECBA® or CCBA® first.
The table briefly explains the purpose of each credential.
