Frequently Asked Questions

What is the significance of IIBA Certification programs being competnecy-based?

As individuals move along their career progression, their competencies will grow and develop.  At each key milestone, the individual will have developed or gained a different level of competency that can be recognized, thus providing a clear differentiation between certification levels.  The certification level encourages a BA professional to seek growth through specific learning and development to support them in achieving the desired level. IIBA certification programs will assess and measure an individual’s competencies at any given level thus ensuring the BA professional and employer know what is expected at each level.

What is the difference between a Professional Certification and a Certificate?

Professional certification is a designation earned by an individual identifying that they have demonstrated a standard level of skills, experience, and expertise within their field.  CCBA®, CBAP®, IIBA®-AAC and IIBA®-CBDA are considered professional certifications because they each have a unique work experience requirement to be eligible and the exam tests their application of the competencies required at each level. In addition, recipients are required to maintain their certification through ongoing continual development activities for recertification. ECBA™ and IIBA®-CCA not require work experience or ongoing continuing development activities, or recertification to be eligible.

Do I need to be a member of IIBA to apply for certification or to recertify?

No, you do not need to be an IIBA member to apply for certification.

Will IIBA verify professional development or work experience?

Applicants and recipients may be randomly selected for audit to validate work experience, professional development and other information provided when they apply and/or recertify.
