BA certification 


I had a question regd BA certification.

I am looking forward to change the direction of my career and am looking for a job as a BA. Previously, I have worked as Marketing Business Analyst and Marketing communications analyst.  I wanted to get some basic BA certification to help me put my foot in the job market as a BA. What kind of certification should I be looking for? Also, Do I need to have previous BA experience to take CBAP exam?

I am kind of new to Modern Analyst so have no idea if this has been discussed previously. Information on this topic would be highly appreciated.

Re: BA certification 

 For information on certification go to  You may be eligible for a CBAP cert if you've done enough years as a BA.  An alternative is the lighter requirement CCBA.


A marketing background is an excellent background for a BA.  Maybe there is non better?  As for qualifications, check with some local recruiters what matters most in your city.
