High quality, very affordable, online business analysis training courses for people who wish to self study for industry recognised qualifications.
We recognise that people who self study are probably self funding; we have priced our ‘Guide to Success’ courses with this in mind.
Our programme has been launched with courses that support the syllabi for various certificates for the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis.
Other programmes will follow.
- ‘Introduction to Business Process Modelling’ supporting syllabi 3.3 and 5.0 for the BCS Certificate in Modelling Business Processes.
- ‘Introduction to Business Change’ supporting the syllabus 3.6 for the BCS Foundation Certificate in Business Change.
- ‘Introduction to Business Analysis’, supporting the syllabus for BCS Foundation Certificate in Business Analysis.
- ‘Introduction to Requirements Engineering’ supporting the syllabus for BCS Practitioner Certificate in Business Analysis.

A course contains a number of modules. Each module covers a major topic on the BCS syllabus for the topic concerned. Click here to see details about the BCS certificates and diplomas.
Modules contain a number of lessons. Lessons cover the sub-topics from the relevant BCS syllabus.
Lessons are deliberately kept short and focused. You cover the material in bite sized chunks.
As soon as you purchase your course you will have access to the entire course.
Video overview of the lesson.
An animated video at the start of the lesson takes you through the essentials.
The video is supported by an online ‘workbook’ that contains more detailed, but still focused, information to support the BCS syllabus for your course.
Online multi-choice questions for the lesson topics.
Each lesson features an online quiz that contains multi-choice exam style questions on the lesson topics.
Multi-choice is now the preferred style for BCS exams.
Case Study with scenario based questions .
These questions require you to create your answers rather than select from a set of provided answers.
Where relevant to the course, you will create models, e.g. of processes, tasks, data or events. The case study questions will not just help to consolidate and reinforce your knowledge but will also help to prepare you for using relevant techniques in your business analysis career.
And even though most exams for ‘practitioner’ level courses are now multi-choice, each question for these multi-choice exams has a small but focused scenario on which the given set of possible answers is based.
Some practitioner level courses are still in the open book scenario style. Our case studies will prepare you for those.
The case study questions all have annotated ‘model answers’.
End of course practice exams
The final module of a course will contain the practice exams.
Online support whilst you take your course.
Throughout your course you will receive emails from us providing guidance and encouragement.
You may contact us at any time during the course by using a ‘member only’ contact form. This contact form is only available to people who have purchased a course.
These courses are not accredited although many of them will be based on material created when Capiro was a BCS accredited exam and training provider.
We gave up our accredited status in 2017. We did this because the BCS demanded that accredited providers had to run a certain number of exams each year. This would have entailed a change to our business model that we were unwilling to make.
All of our courses are created and maintained by BCS approved trainers who have been involved in training people to pass these sort of exams for many years.
Capiro, was previously accredited as a training and exam provider by the BCS. We gave up our accreditation when the BCS changed its terms and conditions in a way that was incompatible with our business model.
We received great feedback from our live, classroom based training sessions. Our online courses are based on these same courses, totally rethought and redesigned for online presentation.
Exams may be taken: world wide at any Pearson Vue test centre

Cancellation within 14 calendar days
If you cancel within 14 calendar days of purchase, you will receive a full refund.
If you cancel as described above, we will endeavour to make the refund to you on the first working day after we receive your cancellation notice. Our definition of working days means ‘working days in the UK (England)’.
You will retain online access to a course for 180 days from the date of purchase.
We recommend that you try to book an exam place immediately on purchasing a course. Give yourself a few weeks between the date you purchase the course and the date you take the exam. This will give you ample time to study the material in detail, at a steady pace to fit in with your other commitments and interests.
Obviously if you have sufficient study time available you can book the exam much sooner that that. Check out your nearest Pearson Vue centre.

Such printed material is of course subject to copyright restrictions and is exclusively for your own use.
When you sign up for a course you will be asked for your email address, first name and family name.
