Description

OVERVIEW

With its latest PMI-PBA® certificate, the Project Management Institute is also demonstrating the importance of business analysis in projects.  A deep understanding of the processes surrounding project requirements is undoubtedly very helpful for all employees in the project, but it is indispensable for those who are responsible for the content of the requirements.

The special training in the online course is based on licensed material from our U.S. partner Watermark Learning, whose managing directors are involved in the design of this new area on behalf of PMI®. In this respect, you will receive up-to-date and very well-founded material as well as 90 days’ access to the online exam simulator with over 900 sample questions, which will play a key role in your successful passing of the exam. Because only a training under almost realistic conditions makes you fast enough to answer 200 questions in 240 minutes.
Furthermore, this course teaches strategies with which you can “crack” the sometimes difficult questions faster and better, such as exclusion procedures, negation, mnemonic abbreviations or other logical conclusions.

One of masVenta’s basic rules is that trainers of our certificate preparation courses are themselves holders of at least the respective certificate.

LIVE ONLINE EXTENDED

This Live Online Extended course consists of 8 modules of 4.5 hours each (this gives you proof of the full 35 hours required for admission to the exam). PBA courses usually take place on eight consecutive Monday or Friday mornings from 8:30 to 13:00, or on selected afternoons. Special appointments are possible.
