Happy Customers

Brilliant way to learn and get certified! I signed up for Knowledge Academy for a 3-day course on Business Analysis. I already had some years of BA experience, and recently been reading up books on the topic to get industry-wide understanding. This course was to formalize the learning and earn a certificate. What I found most useful was that although there were not too many new things that I learnt about from a theoretical standpoint (since I had already had some experience and been reading up), the case-study approach really helped underpin the learning. Applying the business models/concepts, discussing with others in the group and working through the scenarios really clarified things, and this is something that I found was not all that possible just reading by myself. I would definitely recommend this course for anyone who has some inclination towards a BA role. And I am sure The Knowledge Academy would be a great resource for other courses too. Well done TKA.

Just finished my course with TKA in Birmingham and passed with flying colours. The course was challenging at times but then I suppose it is meant to be! The trainer Brian was really good and worked very slow so I could catch up easily. The price was also the cheapest I could find - which originally made me doubt the quality but actually, I can't fault TKA. Will be using them again.
