- Module 1 - Business Analyst Roles, Object Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD) and Rational Unified Process (RUP) Overview
This module provides a broad perspective to the business analysis domain with emphasis on roles, skills and job functions. For candidates with no prior IT expertise, this module provides grounding on software engineering methodologies. It also introduces the candidates - novice and experienced alike - to the concepts of UML and Use Cases and sets expectations of the training program.
- Module 2 - Unified Modeling Language (UML) Deep Dives
Module 2 establishes context of the importance of Business Modeling using UML and discusses the vital business diagrams in detail. Technical diagrams are covered with enough context to be able to comprehend and asses these diagrams. Visualization techniques to represent business problems in a solutions approach are explained with examples. The module also engages the candidates in mini projects to apply the theoretical knowledge in a practical business sense.

- Module 3 - Documenting Functional Requirements - Use Cases
This module illustrates writing elaborate requirements in use case format. Topics covered include Identifying use cases of a system under design, defining the scope and boundary of a use case, discovering the business scenarios and describing the flows to capture the system-user interaction. The candidate will be able to write effective use cases on participation on mini projects for business problems.
Candidates will have the opportunity to write use cases for business scenarios and build the solution model in a team / individual basis. Mini projects will be reviewed to aid quality work product creation.
- Module 4 - Data modeling, Data Analysis and Testing
This module provides the candidates with testing and data analysis principles to a detail required for business analysts. Test methodologies, types and user acceptance test requisites are discussed. A database querying language is explained with the concept of Relational Database Management System (RDBMS)

- Module 5 - Tools Training - Rational Suite and Telelogic
Module 5 walks the candidate through the tools required to perform the role of a business analyst for Requirement Management, Change Management, Version Control and UML Business Modeling
Candidates are presented with online demonstration of a UML Modeling software like Rational Rose / StarUML. Candidates are encouraged to create UML diagrams for the assignments using the software tools. Specific emphasis will be on the business diagrams. Online candidates are required to collaborate by a webconferencing tool such as webex.
