Had a great experience choosing them as source of information for BA certification. Just passed ECBA and thank you guys for the help.


“I want to thank Adaptive US for the excellent work they are doing on preparation tools for IIBA certifications. I’ve successfully used their preparation tools for ECBA, AAC and CBAP. Best IIBA certifications training team, Great Job !”


Adaptive was instrumental in my passing the ECBA exam. LN was an amazing instructor who took the time to teach us the skills, but how to apply them. He filled the classes with practical examples, made an interactive learning environment, and challenged us as we tackled the material. I wouldn’t have passed had it not been for Adaptive and LN.


I purchased Adaptive’s question bank and test simulator after completing a competitors self pace course and not feeling comfortable that I would pass the exam. After completing and reviewing all of Adaptive’s simulation I felt more than ready for the test… and i passed the first time around! Would definitely recommend!


With the help of Adaptive team (Peter, Lora and LN) I was able to pass get my ECBA certificate. I highly recommend their online courses. Thanks guys!


I am thankful to Adaptive to make my ECBA experience so smooth. They have proven competence and great resources for anyone wishing to undergo training on business analysis. They are very responsive and ready to help at any hour.


Adaptive US ECBA course is amazing, the instructor-led classes, the material, the videos and, the test quizzes are all so through that when you test it feels no different then taking one of the quizzes at Adaptive. Follow the study guide in the course and you will have no problem passing your test the first time. I am so pleased with the course that I am signing up for the CCBA course this May for the instructed-led classes in August.


I used the question bank to write my ECBA exam. It was extremely helpful. I have a hard time with multiple choice exams but after studying from the question bank I did not have any anxieties and passed the exam with no problem. Thank you for your help

Case studies of career transformation with ECBA

After completing my BTech & MBA, I started working as an HR professional. Before moving to Canada, I found out about business analysis as a great career option. The BA role piqued my interest and I realized this was exactly what I wanted to do. However, getting a BA job in a new country was difficult as it called for the right knowledge and skillsets. While looking for a BA course I found Adaptive US and enrolled for their ECBA training. The training was perfect as it gave me a sound understanding of the BA concepts. With my newfound understanding of the BA role, I secured a permanent job as a Systems Analyst in the company that I was interning with. I was confident that I was heading in the right direction and within 2 months of getting ECBA certified, I bagged my first full-time BA job. I am ever thankful to Adaptive as their ECBA training propelled my BA career and I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to become a BA. Read my story…

-Ineha Thind

After completing my Masters, I aspired to become a BA. I diligently applied to over 500 organizations but unfortunately, none translated into a job. I figured that there was a gap in my resume and having no experience, knowledge or skillset for a BA role were the major stumbling blocks for me. I enrolled with Adaptive US for the ECBA online training which helped me immensely by boosting my confidence and improving my communication skills. The exposure to the BA domain, the knowledge, and the tips were the main reasons I was able to get a job by the end of the 5 weeks training session. I would definitely say that having experienced Adaptive’s training with LN as the chief mentor, I consider it to be the best. Read my story…

-Raja Vignesh

After my bachelor’s degree, I worked as a travel agent in a reputed travel agency. But it did not give me job satisfaction. While working in the corporate travel department I became interested in the business analyst role. To get my foothold in the BA domain I enrolled with Adaptive US, which had very good reviews, comments, and feedback. The BA concepts, tools and techniques taught by the world-class mentors at Adaptive gave me a good insight into business analysis. After the ECBA training, I applied for the position of a BA and bagged the job with one of the leaders in the travel industry. I feel very elated and proud to be working in my dream role as a business analyst, all thanks to Adaptive US. Read my story…

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 ECBA participants, we know that it is safe to assume that the ECBA exam passing score is more than 70%. Hence, we suggest targeting 85%+ in the ECBA mock tests in order to be successful in the ECBA final exam.

Although IIBA® allows one to take the ECBA 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, provide practical tips and tricks based on exam experience, provide access to BA tools

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

  • You need 21 PD hours for the IIBA application process.
  • Questions are knowledge based and requires good understanding of concepts, tasks and techniques, which comes only with the guidance, and mentoring of experienced coaches and study materials.
  • Time management can be a challenge for those who are not well versed with the subject and the exam prep tricks and tips from our coaches helps our participants to sail through this challenge.

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.

Read on to move ahead in your BA career.

Yes, you have been a Business Analyst, done and lived the analyst role, been through all this, now it doesn't seem so interesting anymore.

Here is a very broad guideline for the career progression of a BA.   BA Career Paths Four common career paths BAs can pursue are:
  1. Business analysis
  2. Product management
  3. Project management
  4. Consulting
However having said that it depends on the person's interest, domain/technical knowledge, interest to learn new concepts and risk-taking ability which determines largely the career progress.

This gives you good exposure and makes your career prospects broader. That makes you a good candidate for a senior executive position. If you love what you are good at and aim to become an expert in the same without changing gears then you can master your domain including getting into other areas in the same domain. This can include having a good hold on the tools and products prevalent in the domain. This can make you a great specialist and unique in the field, which is invaluable for your career. You can make yourself a great consultant in a particular field and can think of working with multiple clients to give them a part of your time and expert guidance. In return, this gives you the flexibility and the rich experience of working with multiple clients. There is no better time than now to start something good. Go and Kiss the world as per your taste and interest, the world is all yours if you can make it and believe in yourself.
