  • Changes taking place to Japanese and German exams - As of end of day September 22, 2016, Japanese CCBA® and CBAP® exams and German CBAP® exam, currently aligned to v2 of the BABOK® Guide, will no longer be available. We will work with the representatives and Chapters of the Japanese and German BA community to determine the next steps for translating the new Level 2 and 3 exams and we will communicate next steps over the coming months. 
  • Current applicants - If you applied and were approved to take the current exams, you will be able to take the new exams without having to reapply through the new online application. Important: Please remember the date you are registered to take the exam to ensure you prepare for the correct version of the exam!
  • IIBA will waive the 3-month wait period for current exams - Effective immediately, IIBA is waiving the 3-month wait requirement for those who have not passed the exam aligned to BABOK® Guide v2.  This will allow you take the exam twice, if needed, by the end of day on September 22.
  • More spots added to test centers - Additional test spots will be available over the next few months at Prometric test centers that offer IIBA certification exams to meet the increased demand for those planning on taking the current exams. Spots are filled on a first come, first served basis. Register now!
