Reasons for Recertification

Individuals who have attained the
CCBA® or CBAP® designation must demonstrate an ongoing professional commitment to the business analysis profession by satisfying the respective Recertification program. There are two reasons for requiring recertification:
  • To ensure that the Business Analysis Professional is keeping up with changes in the profession.
  • To ensure the Business Analysis Professional contributes to the profession.

The recertification program supports the ongoing professional development of individuals who have attained the CBAP or CCBA designation. The purposes of recertification are to:

  • Encourage the ongoing professional development of CBAP/CCBA recipients.
  • Encourage and recognize individual learning.
  • Encourage the efforts of CBAP/CCBA recipients to give back to the profession.
  • Offer a standard and objective mechanism for recording professional development activities.
  • Sustain the global recognition and value of the CBAP/CCBA designation.

CBAP®/CCBA® Recertification

In order to satisfy the recertification and maintain an active status, CBAP/CCBA recipients must earn and report a minimum of 60 Continuing Development Units (CDUs) during each three-year cycle. A recipient's certification begins on the date they pass the certification examination and ends on the third anniversary of that date. For example, if you passed the CBAP/CCBA exam on January 5, 2011, your certification will end on January 5, 2014.

Prior to the recipient's certification expiration date, the recipient must complete the following steps.  The forms are included in the recertification packages.  Exam Registration forms, exam locations, and other information are provided on the CBAP Designation and CCBA Designation pages of the IIBA.

  1. Complete the CBAP Recertification Application Form
  2. Complete the CBAP CDU Reporting Form
  3. Sign the CBAP Code of Ethical Conduct and Professional Standards
