ECBA Certification Process

The ECBA certificate is offered by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®), the global leader in business analysis competency guidelines. IIBA® is a world-renowned body dedicated to helping professionals, leaders and organizations gain an in-depth understanding of real-world business analysis situations.  

You can study on your own and take the examination directly from IIBA® without attending an ECBA training course. However, this may prove to be very challenging. To be abreast of the latest guidelines from IIBA® and the ECBA certification requirements, it is highly recommended that you get trained for the ECBA certification by an IIBA-registered Endorsed Education Provider™ (EEP™) like KnowledgeHut. You’ll benefit from comprehensive ECBA preparation support and a 100% money-back guarantee. 

Here are the steps to get  ECBA certified: 

  • Fulfill the eligibility requirements for ECBA certification. 
  • Register for KnowledgeHut’s ECBA course and attend the 21-Hours training. 
  • Login to the IIBA portal with your IIBA credentials (received via mail). 
  • Pay ECBA Application Fee 
  • Enter BA Development Log Hours 
  • Pay the ECBA exam fee.

  • Download the ECBA certificate and lead BA initiatives!    

Your ECBA certification will be valid for life.

You do not need to earn all 21 contact hours from one ECBA course. However, it is more structured to acquire all the ECBA knowledge from a single course that focuses on the latest BABOK® Guide v3 framework.   

Yes, you should have completed the 21 ECBA contact hours before submitting your ECBA application. You would need to enter the course details together with the date of completion on the application form before submitting.  

The  BABOK® Guide  refers to A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK® Guide), developed via a rigorous consensus-driven standards process and incorporates the collective wisdom and experience of experts in the BA field from around the world. The latest edition is v3.0.

The BABOK® Guide v3 is a great resource and an extremely useful one to prepare for the ECBA exam. It defines the skills and knowledge required by business analysis professionals covering the six knowledge areas and the business analysis competency model. It extends its scope beyond business analysis in projects to address agile development, business process management, business intelligence, and business architecture. 

Yes, you will receive a course completion certificate from KnowledgeHut on successfully completing the course.  

The time you require depends on your effort and capability as well as your experience and qualifications. You would need to attend 21 Hours of ECBA training under a Certified BA Trainer following which you will be required to take an exam to demonstrate your knowledge of Business Analysis to get certified. Once you pass the exam, you are declared ECBA certified and can instantly download your certificate.

The ECBA certification status can be verified via IIBA’s Certification Registry. However, inclusion in the registry is voluntary, so not all certification holders may be listed.  

To verify a certification holder's status, enter an individual's last name/surname in the search field and a list of matches will be displayed.  

No, you do not have to renew ECBA certification since, it is valid for life. 

The ECBA price is not a big constraint when it comes to the ECBA certification. In fact, the ECBA certification cost depends on your geographical location. There is a misconception that a student has to burn a big hole in their pocket when it comes to ECBA price, but you’ll be happy to know that the exam application fees are US$60 and the exam fees can range from US$110 - US$195, depending on whether you are a member or a non-member of IIBA. 

Search results say that CBAP is the best certification.

You can find out more about PD hours, CDUs and PDUs as follows:

    I was enrolled to the ECBA weekend class course and the instructor was good with the concepts. He started the course with the basics and then jumped into the course structure. I am giving 4 stars because of the glitches in the communication but all the while it was a good course.
