    I wasn't impressed. This instructor simply read off slides instead of explaining major topics. It was tough to stay awake for and it didn't feel very thorough.

    Simple answer: Because our course has been the bestselling in terms of PMI-PBA exam preparation since 2021. Our exam preparation course is aligned with the syllabus covered in the actual PMI-PBA certification exam. Our applied learning approach helps learners understand the concepts better and our instructor is a PMI PBA certified who has more than 8 years of experience coaching and preparing students to pass the exam from the first trial. Our PMI PBA exam preparation course includes access to digital materials, case studies, interactive quizzes, and simulation exams to help you prepare for the PMI PBA Certification exam and clear it in the first attempt.

    When you have completed our PMI-PBA exam preparation course, you will receive a course completion certificate showing the 35 contact hours of business analysis certification which you can use for the exam application. Elite Minds does not administer the PMI-PBA certification, but once you have passed that exam, you will receive the prestigious PMI-PBA certification from the Project Management Institute.

    One hour of our course instruction equals one contact hour. If you have completed a university or college course on project management that met for three hours per week for 15 weeks, you would record 45 contact hours. If only a portion of a PMI-PBA course dealt with project management, only the hours spent on project management can be applied toward the total. PDUs are the measuring unit used to quantify approved learning and professional service activities.

    Participants are granted three chances to pass the PMI-PBA® exam in one year. For the second and the third attempt for the examination, the participants must pay an additional fee of $275 (for members) or $375 (nonmembers) as a reexamination fee. The participants will have a waiting period of one year before they can re-appear for the exam in case, they do not pass in their first three attempts after completion of PMI-PBA training course.

    The PMI-PBA® exam is comprised of 200 questions, 240 minutes to complete the exam, one additional break for a total of 10-minute for computer-based tests. No scheduled breaks for paper-based exams. Questions will be multiple-choice only.

    No. PMI® does not mandate any expiry timeline for contact hours earned to qualify for the PMI-PBA® Exam if you retain the proof (certificate). There is no deadline or expiry date, though the contact hours must have been acquired before the submission of the application to PMI®. For example, if you earn the contact hours in 2020, there is nothing stopping you from taking the exam in 2023.

    You can reach out directly to our instructor throughout WhatsApp +962797205176.

    Yes. Our students can share with us through email: info@eliteminds.co their application draft to review it before formally submitting it through the PMI website.

    First, you need to check whether you are eligible to take the PMI-PBA certification exam. For example, a four-year degree, 36 months of experience in business analysis within the last 8 years, and 35 contact hours of business analysis training is required to become eligible. Next, you need to pass the PMI-PBA certification exam to receive the certificate.

    If you are a PMI member, you need to pay USD 60 as a renewal fee. For non-PMI members, the renewal fee is USD 150.

    The PMI-PBA certification exam is quite difficult, even for those who have experience in product requirements and business analysis. So, the time it takes to prepare for the exam entirely depends on your prior knowledge and the intensity with which you prepare. If you are dedicated enough, it can take you around twelve weeks for complete preparation with the help of our PMI-PBA training.
