Hence, we suggest targeting 85%+ in the CCBA mock tests in order to be successful in the CCBA final exam.

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.

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?

How many times can I attempt the exam?
