I am very happy to say that I passed my CCBA Certification, I attended my CCBA Training at Techcanvass. My Trainer was Miss ElaJha. She was really good with great understanding and have good knowledge about the topic. Thank You Techcanvass Team.

She used to answer all our questions patiently and used to encourage us to make it an interactive session. I found the session really interesting and informative where I got to learn the important concept of BABOK. Also, the support staff was good in the responsibility.
