Went ahead this afternoon to locate materials that you can obtain online on business analyst training.
1. This site offers assistance as well as materials that you can obtain:
2. A great comprehensive collection with links that offer training materials as well as assistance with any questions that you may have:
In addition to the information provided, I’d like to offer you a few more options. There are over a dozen resources for business analyst training and training materials available on the Business Analyst Learnings website.
Let me point out a few really good ones for you.
Smart BA has a variety of training materials you can use for yourself or to present training to others. There are even PowerPoint slides you can utilize as well as 10 training modules for your use. Their only request is that you let people know you obtained the materials from them. http://smart-ba.com/archives/13
There are numerous links to free online training courses (many with additional paid options) such as Bridging the Gap, Business Analyst Mentor and the Professional Training Academy.
The most notable training course to me is the free course available through the University of California. Their Fundamentals of Business Analysis course is offered under the Business and Management category of their Open CourseWare program. This course provides valid business principles utilized in the field as evidenced by the fact that it provides you with an overview of the contents of the International Institute of Business Analysis® (IIBA®) Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK®). http://cat.ocw.uci.edu/oo/getPage.php?course=OC1305015
For additional training materials, I would suggest considering corporate or academic membership with the International Institute of Business Analysis® (IIBA®). Membership has a number of benefits including a free copy of the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge® (BABOK®) Guide in addition to endless learning and development opportunities with free access to their online library of more than 300 books and professional development tools and webinars for training and continuing education. Additionally, there is the opportunity to utilize discounts if you should choose to sit for either of their two certification exams.
Whether you are looking for training materials to utilize on your own or for group facilitation, I believe these resources will provide additional information you can review to meet your needs. Hopefully you found this information helpful. If there is any way I can be of further assistance to you just let me know. I’d love to help!
Good luck and have a great rest of the weekend!
