Where do you train?
Are your courses hands-on?
All of our courses are workshops. This means that much of the time (typically around 50% but it can be more) is spent on practical work. Of this, some is individual work but most of it is done in small teams. These courses are designed to maximise the learning curve, and this is usually achieved by a mix of activities – quizzes, demonstrations, examples, discussion, simulations, teamwork.
First established in 1989, IRM Training is one of the most experienced providers of Business Analyst courses. With some of the most knowledgeable trainers in Australia, we provide plenty of practical experience which we are able to pass on through our courses.
IRM Training offers 7 Business Analyst courses that conform to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK®) version 3 and are endorsed by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA®). Our courses develop skills such as modelling, diagramming, interview techniques, presentations, workshop facilitation and data analysis.
As one of the founding members of the IIBA®’s Endorsed Education Provider (EEP™) program, IRM Training was also a contributor to the early development of the BABOK®. Therefore, we helped to shape standardisation of business analysis practises world-wide.
