PMI-PBA® Exam Prep class is scheduled January 16-19, 2018 with instructor Laura Paton!

There is a lot of buzz in the marketplace about the PMI-PBA® certification! To date, PMI-PBA credential holders reside in over 82 countries and this certification continues to gain momentum.

According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession® report, inaccurate requirements gathering consistently ranks as one of the top three reasons for project failure yet only half of the organizations surveyed state they have the necessary resources in place to perform business analysis effectively.  If you are responsible for business analysis activities, regardless of your job title, the PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® credential can help you showcase your expertise.

Our online, live instructor-led PMI-PBA® Exam Prep class is scheduled January 16-19, 2018. Click on the following link to view a course description and request information on our PMI-PBA Exam Prep class http://www.rgfgroup.com/rgfcourse-pba04 or email us at info@rgfgroup.com
