  • Opportunity to earn more income – Certified BAs on average earn 13% more
  • Be recognized by the organization and peers as experts in their field.

Among BA certifications, IIBA certifications are most recognized throughout the world. Here is the result of 2018 IIBA Salary Survey:

Why Adaptive US

As you may already have received inputs on the new examination scheme for IIBA V3, certifications have become significantly more difficult. We have interacted with many unsuccessful (mostly from our competing with large training institutes) regarding their agony in failing not only once but multiple times.

Many unsuccessful participants report how the question bank they practiced was quite different than what they found in the actual exam. It’s indeed sad that many training organizations have not modified their question banks for V3 and pass on V2 question banks to unsuspecting customers.

We are about $500 more expensive than many other IIBA training institutes.

Let’s answer 2 important questions:

  1. Should you invest $500 additional with Adaptive?
  2. How is Adaptive able to achieve 1000% better results than competitors?

So, answering the first question first.

1. Firstly, should you invest an additional $500 with Adaptive?

Should you invest with Adaptive US?

Let’s answer the question with supporting data.

All of us work hard to earn our living. So, it is a real pertinent aspect to decide whether one should spend money on getting trained on CBAP or any other certification. Now let us compute this amount in an overall perspective.

Based on information received from IIBA, the current failure rate for CBAP to be approximately 30%. This means one in three CBAP aspirants do not succeed in their first attempt. For us, it is about 3%.

The total investment one makes while going for a certification examination are:

  1. Money spent on Adaptive training: USD 1000. Our CBAP training comes with 36 hours of training by experienced faculties, CBAP study guide with 100+ tips and mnemonics, 2000+ model questions. Post out training, we expect you to study 50 hours to complete the certification.
  2. Money spent on certification fees: USD 575
  3. Time investment made: If you do self-study, you are likely to spend a minimum of 200 hours to prepare yourself in terms of knowledge of BABoK, make notes, mnemonics, etc. One can buy additional question banks if studying alone by paying USD 100. So, you need to spend an additional 150 hours if you are preparing yourself. Even at an extremely modest rate of USD 25 per hour, this will be between USD 3750.
  4. Out of pocket cost one incurs when one does not succeed the first time: Lost time, need to prepare again and re-apply: 50 hours more preparation, USD 250 towards re-application, that's another USD 1000
  5. We are not including non-tangible costs such as lost morale and social prestige. We are pretty much sure that most of your close family and friends would know that you are going in for the examination.
  6. So, the overall cost is close to USD 5750.
  7. Now USD 500 is not even 10% of the whole preparation cost.
  8. This 10% investment can increase the possibility to pass by 90%.

So, it's your call now. Would you let $500 destroy your dreams and opportunities?

$500 additional investment is not even 10% of the overall investment.

2. How does Adaptive achieve a success rate of 1000% better than the industry average?
