About IRM Training

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.


IRM Training provides a Certificate of Completion (CoC) to all attendees who have completed a course. Therefore, those looking to get certified by the IIBA® can supply this CoC as proof of having acquired the required Professional Development Hours. This will allow you to sit on the IIBA® exam.


According to Australian Government Department of Jobs and Small Business, there are 26,100 Business Analysts in Australia with 91.6% working full time. Therefore, the skill level required for a business analyst is degree or higher, with a moderate future growth rate for positions.

What is the class size of your training courses?

Courses by IRM are limited to 12 places to ensure maximum instructor to attendee interaction. Then attendees are often split into groups to complete exercises and hold mock interviews which helps business analysts learn from others in their team. Also, our instructors will always be happy to answer any specific questions that the workshop timing allows for.

Where do you train?

Just about anywhere! Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Brisbane are the main centres for our public courses. We’ll run in-house courses anywhere in Australia, and overseas.

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.
