Adaptive US offers a CCBA application simulator, which takes care of all the requirements from IIBA for the CCBA certification examination.

 Is there a discount on exam fees for IIBA members?
There is 155 USD discount for IIBA members on the examination fees.
Can I do self-paced study and pass the CCBA exam?

Although IIBA® allows one to take the CCBA exam without any classroom training, it will be really hard to understand BABoK v3.0 without the help of an expert instructor. BABoK V3 is 500+ pages long and quite complex to follow. An expert instructor can help you to understand BABoK v3.0 very quickly. In addition, instructor led sessions give good insight on how to prepare for the exam, clarify doubts and provide practical tips and tricks based on exam experience.

CCBA self-study is not recommended for the following reasons:


  • You need 21 PDUs for the IIBA application process and PD hours are obtained from live training.
  • Clearing CCBA is not easy as questions are scenario based.
  • All the questions require good understanding of concepts, tasks and techniques, which comes only with the guidance, and mentoring of experienced coaches and study materials.
  • Time management remains a big challenge till date and the exam prep tricks and tips from our coaches helps our participants to sail through this challenge.
 How will I know if I passed the CCBA exam?

The CCBA exam candidates will be notified immediately on screen once they submit their computer-based exam. For those who fail the exam, they will be provided with additional information, specifically the Knowledge Areas that require their attention.

 How many times can I attempt the exam?

You may take the exam up to 3 times within the 1-year application expiry period. There is no wait time between exam sittings. If you take the exam all 3 times and do not pass, you must wait until your application expires before you can reapply.

What is the CCBA exam passing score?

There is no official data from IIBA to answer this question as IIBA does not disclose this information. However, from our experience and the experience of our past CCBA participants, we know that it is safe to assume that the CCBA exam passing score is more than 70%. Hence, we suggest targeting 85%+ in the CCBA mock tests in order to be successful in the CCBA final exam.

What is CCBA salary?
