    Quite a few participants are worried on continuing there certification with the release of BABOK ver 3.0 and are checking with Simplilearn if the content that is provided is based on BABOK 3.0.

    Though there is a version release in BABOK the exam dates are yet to be announced for new version, therefore the current content that we are providing is suitable for the ongoing exam for CBAP by IIBA. This is what one of our SME had to say when checked as per IIBA:

    BABOK v3 has been launched on 15th April 2015.


    Certification

    The timing to pursue certification is an individual decision. However, there is no need for individuals to wait for version 3 of BABOK® Guide to take their exam. The certification exams aligned to BABOK® Guide v3 and the revised certification program will be announced approximately 4-6 months in advance.

    Hi can the Trainer/SME for CBAP and CCBA confirm as to what is the projected date for the changed exam to be implemented by IIBA, so we may opt accordingly.

    Hi Om, I am planning to appear for CBAP in November 2015. Are you sure about the exam on BABOK V3 will going to be in effect in November.
    Your advise on this will be highly appreciated.

    Hi Vinutha, thanks for the update.
    I am waiting for the course to commence. Please update whenever date is finalised.
    I hope as I have registered for previous CCBA course, I will not have to pay anything extra for the course aligned to BABOK v3.
    Regards,
    Nitish
