I was looking out for a Good Institute for my IIBA-AAC training,I found about Techcanvass through google, I read some reviews and did some investigations. I also work a lot with colleagues in India, and I really like the cultural approach and mindset, particularly for IT things, so this also helped with my decision to do my training through Techcanvass.

I believe that Techcanvass is one of the leading training Institute for Business Analysis and IT, with lots of extremely smart and knowledge people. I have enrolled for AAC certification training now, but I will also be doing the CBAP Re-Cerification course I will be in touch when I’m ready to enrol in that. Many thanks for all your help.

The training went very smoothly. We had interactive sessions, it was great. Our trainer Ipsita was very helpful and cleared our doubts with practical real life examples. We tried to solve as many simulator questions as possible during our classroom sessions and had discussions over the topic which helped us clear the concepts.

Even after the training we felt free to clarify our doubts with our trainer. Would rate 5/5 😊.
