Business Analysis Expert at Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy

My journey to CBDA in brief:
After going through CBDA domain guide, I started to attend techcanvass mock test. Initially it made me down realizing what I learned is not in memory and getting score around 50% all the time 😌… It lead me to learn thoroughly each concept, tools and techniques. Then I did Techcanvass mock test for each domain, that helped me to understand all the concept well and the way the questions are being asked.

Before the exam date, I revised the CBDA guide, techcanvas presentations and mind maps to make sure full concepts and sequence of domain activities are in my mind. Revised full test (Total 4 test each with 75 questions) three times to get used with tricky question patterns and domain knowledge. Whichever the topics not covered well in the CBDA guide, Google and YouTube helped me out to understand it in depth.
Finally on the day of exam, found a lot of similar questions from techcanvass. Yes, I passed in first attempt itself on 25th Sep 2021😎.
Thanks for your wonderful material.

I am happy to say I have completed my CBDA Certification examination. This is my 2nd training with Techcanvass, so I have already recommended Techcanvass in general (not a specific training) to a couple of my peers last year. The training was very effective.

The trainer seems to have vast experience in the subject matter and she quoted real life examples whenever needed.The LMS portal has various study materials apart from the training recordings and presentations.Thank you very much Team Techcanvass.

I would give 5 stars with "5" being the highest on a scale of 1 to 5.

Thank you to the Trainer for giving us the IIBA CBDA training and also for sharing comprehensive real life business data analytics project experience and relating it to the and addressing all the open observations being raised.

I also appreciate the pace with which she covers each topic at length with supporting examples and case studies. It is evident, the trainer has very strong knowledge and practical work experience in the field of Business Data Analytics and I look forward to seeing her as our “Role Model”.

LMS Portal is equally informative. The documents uploaded in "LMS > Reference Library" have been pretty impressive which further amplified my interest and awareness in the field of "Business Data Analytics" Support Team.

Truly appreciate the best support, prompt attention and honest answers provided by Brijesh in getting all my open observations resolved before joining the class and also after my classes started.

Apart from Brijesh, Nazni and many other team members of the support team with whom we haven’t interacted they all have been really supportive sending and scheduling lecture meeting invitations much before and on time or keeping LMS updated.

Trainer was well versed with industry knowledge and provided actual work examples to relate to. She even provided extraordinary tips to study, create a schedule for preparing for the exam and helped to understand how the exam would help benefit our career.

LMS portal has a lot of training and learning materials which I feel is more than enough and the quiz and mock tests help to get a better understanding of the exam and as well as help in deep learning, it's a plus that the trainings that were done are recorded and shared so that we can go back and visit any topic we have a doubt on Support from Nazni and Brijesh has been constant and they are always available to solve any queries, appreciate them being available for us.
