On February 8, 2012, IIBA released its re-certification package for CCBA. They have a new handbook, which is a must to get if you want to learn more about it. Currently, there are over 100 CCBAs, whose earliest re-cert is 2014, but it is never too early to begin planning.
In a recent webinar on CBAP/CCBA Certification, I mentioned the re-cert requirements would be much the same for CCBA as it is for CBAP. Like the CBAP, the CCBA credential requires 60 CDUs in a 3-year period to maintain it. If you are a CCBA and don’t have enough hours to qualify for the CBAP when your 3-year cycle ends, it makes sense to renew your CCBA.
Download your re-certification package on the IIBA website:
IIBA Provides this information about the CCBA renewal:
- The current renewal fee for IIBA members is $85 USD and $120 USD for non-members.
- Fractions of CDUs may be reported in quarter (¼) hour increments after one full hour. If the activity is less than one hour, the activity does not qualify for any CDU credit.
- Earned CDUs must be reported using the CCBA® CDU Reporting Form and subject to maximums in various categories.
- Compare and refer to our table of maximums within each category:
Summary: If you have a CCBA, start tracking your re-certification hours by category. A simple spreadsheet format will work just fine for this. By the time you need to re-certify, hopefully the IIBA will have an online form for us to enter our hours. (I would love that by 2013, actually, when my CBAP is up for renewal!).
