If you missed last meeting….
Dalton Hooper spoke on “The Road to Business Analysis Certification: Is It Worth the Trip?”
Dalton is a past president of the chapter and was a technical communicator for 25 years. He is now a senior business analyst (with the heart of a technical communicator) at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Dalton recounted the milestones of his own journey to becoming a certified business analysis professional (CBAP). His presentation was an honest and often humorous look at the process, from preparing the application (including proof of 7500 hours of BA experience), to clicking Submit on the 150-question online exam, many hours of BABOK study and several hundred dollars later.
The presentation concluded with the audience trying its hand at answering sample multiple-choice questions from the CBAP exam.
