    Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

    Will this course help me in becoming an IT business analyst?

    This course has been designed to help you start as a business analyst. The course modules have been chosen keeping in mind the skills required for a new business analyst. See the answer to the next question.

    • • Developing Requirements Specifications

    • • UML Modelling & related tools

    • • SQL Basics

    • • User stories and backlog Management

    • This ECBA Certification course covers all these topics with case studies and practical examples.

    Can I start my career as a Business Analyst with this training?

    Yes. The course is designed to help you master/acquire hands-on and practical business analysis skills, domain knowledge and IIBA Certification. These are the three critical success factors for kick starting your career as a business analyst.

    What is the value of IIBA ECBA Certification?

    International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) is one of the most respected certification organizations along with Project Management Institute (PMI). A certification from reputed organizations like IIBA always adds credibility to your resume as a stamp on your business analysis skills. A certification also helps you in differentiating your profile as compared to others.

    Do I get any certificate after completing this course?

    Yes, you will get a course completion certificate, once you finish the course. This certificate is provided to you for all the courses.

    What is the importance of domain training for business analysts?

    Functional knowledge or knowledge of business processes is an important skill for every business analyst. That's why we have started this specialized training course. This module is not designed to make you an expert but it will provide you a good understanding of banking domain key terms, functions & processes. You will also be doing a project, that you can showcase in your resume.

    Is this business analyst training suitable for non-IT professionals?

    Yes, of course. This training is designed for entry level business analysts. This is a beginner level course and can be done by non IT professionals as well.

    What is Business Analysis?

    Business Analysis is the skill of identifying, defining, analyzing a business problem and then, evaluating and recommending the best solution for an organization. The business analysis skills is a universal skill and can be applied to solve any business problem. Business analysts use these skills.
    Unfortantely, it has become synonymous with IT business analyst as well as business analytics professionals and that is confusing for many. IT business analyst deals with the understanding, analysis and modelling of IT system requirements to solve customer needs/problems. The business analytics professionals deal with data (possibly generated by software systems) using statistical and machine learning algorithms to solve customer needs/problems. Even though, we use business analysts to refer to both of them, they use completely different skill sets to achieve their goals.

    Which IIBA certification exam I will be eligible for?

    You will be eligible for ECBA certification exam. Please refer to the IIBA Certification pricing page for latest updates to the fee.

    Can I do the ECBA Certification course without Banking Domain module?

    Yes, of course. We have a ECBA Certification course specially designed for this purpose.

    Yes, you can do selected modules or you can go for mini courses. However, please note that 21 hrs of PDUs are required for appearing in IIBA Certification exam, so you need to attend at least 21 hrs to be eligible.

    Is business analyst same as a systems analyst or IT business analyst?

    Yes, systems analyst and it business analyst are broadly known as business analyst in the IT industry.

    Student Testimonials


    Purva Arvindekar

    I completed an ECBA course with Techcanvas this month. It was an internet coaching class - but was as great as a classroom with direct contact. The admission process is efficient and quickly you get access to the learning systems.

    The tutors are very good with the content - give multiple case studies, examples, classroom problem solving to make you understand concepts clearly. An intensive program with perfect focus on learning and revision simultaneously to enable you to get the desired certification. The course also has a unique test simulator which was extremely helpful and makes the actual certification exam look like SUPER EASY to crack. The support groups and other members who coordinate for the project completion and test completion are great too. The material/slides/reading they provide is extremely helpful. Value for money - perfect timeline - Very professional Institute! Thanks to Tech canvas I’m a certified ECBA professional. I’m confident I will do my CCBA with Techcanvass. Thank you Abhishek sir and team!

    Harishkumar Chettiar, Assistant Consultant, Tata Consultancy Services, Singapore.

    I would like to thank Techcanvass and its complete team for taking good care of me throughout the course and being flexible with me w.r.t. schedule and content of the course.

    I had opted for an online course in Techcanvass through Skype when I was in Sydney, Australia. Satisfaction level was above my expectation as credit goes to Abhishek Srivastava, who is not only the head of Techcanvass but also a master in BA course work who is not only sharp with his practical examples but someone who encouraged discussion throughout the course. With 8+ years of experience in IT, I had good enough background of how BA works as my experience was widely distributed Technically as well as functionally in Banking domain. But Abhishek made sure that he tailor-made the course for me so that I get what I want and we don't waste time in things that I already know. Abhishek has a very high command on his communication and has a very clear picture of the various Business Analysis aspects theoretically as well as practically with his vast experience in the IT field. Off the course, he has always been available with his valued expertise and knowledge and his ever-ready nature of helping in need. It has also been great to read the blogs and articles issued by Techcanvass thorough LinkedIn as they are useful and also gives you a road-map for this ever-changing dynamic field of IT. I would also like to thank Shiwangi who made sure that I had a smooth onboarding process within Techcanvass and also with regards to my sessions and their timings. I would highly recommend Techcanvass to anyone who is interested in making a career in Business Analysis to join BA sessions online or in the classroom as it has the best mentor that I have come across and also the content provided is up to the point which can be completely related to work.

    Thank you, Abhishek and the complete team of Techcanvass
