Interviews from our Alumni who are now working as Business Analysts
The Practical Experience and Knowledge of the Instructors were a Big Plus for me because it helped me Groom Myself for the Real World.
I had a pleasure of attending the training classes offered by Requirements Inc on Business Analysis. Srinivas prepared a put together a program for working professionals in business analysis function starting from the functional aspects to the technical areas. Personally, I have learnt a lot in his program and will recommend in a heartbeat to anyone to take his course.
Excellent instructor. The business analyst training class was very helpful. Srinivas and team have developed a thorough curriculum that can prepare either an experienced developer or a beginner to take on a business analyst role.

The approach to the BA course is very professional. Although the course content is to the point, it covers all relevant fundamental concepts so that the participants are not left behind. Since the overall structure of the course is very practical, particularly software engineering methodologies, requirement gathering and use case writing techniques, it helps the participants to prepare themselves according to the market requirement and train them to face interviews. The practical experience and knowledge of the instructors were a big plus for me because it helped me groom myself for the real world. I had a very pleasant experience during the entire course because of the warm and positive approach of the instructors which really helped me in boosting up my confidence.
A. Ramya, IT Business Analyst, Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Los Angeles, CA
I had enrolled in Requirements Incs online training course (Apr-May 07') at my employer's recommendation. Initially I was very apprehensive about enrolling in an online training class, but the instructor's effective style of communication and thorough understanding of the subject put me at ease. The instructor's teaching methods coupled with the study aids that were provided helped in building my Business Analysis skills. By the end of the 15th class, my confidence levels were high and I had grasped the finer points of Software engineering and project management. All the important methodologies were addressed and exercises and case studies were provided at every opportunity. The format also enabled me to attend classes from the comfort of my home. The instructor was always available via email/phone to clarify doubts and provide suggestions. His prompt responses ensured that there were no major road blocks in completing the exercises and understanding the case studies. All sessions were very interactive and all individuals were encouraged to discuss their doubts and share their opinions. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in improving their Business Analysis skills.

The breadth of the course modules are amazing. The instructor is very well versed in all aspects of each topic detail. Not only will you learn about Business Analyst tools, methods, and processes, you'll learn the fundamentals surrounding it.
Cary Lee Dailey, Senior Systems Analyst, Verizon, McLean, VA
The training I received provided me with hands on experience with skills that are critical to being a successful business analyst. I had already worked as a junior systems analyst for a couple of years, but had never had any official training in SQL, object oriented analysis and design, and the Rational Unified Process and related tools. During the class, we went over OOAD, SQL, Rational tools such as Clear Case and Requisite Pro, and most importantly, how to write effective use cases and pull together UML diagrams. Since I took the training and updated my resume with the knowledge I gained, I was offered a Senior Systems Analyst job within a couple of months. It was an investment that was well worth it.
Seun Joseph-Adebo, Business Process Reengineering Specialist, Booz Allen Hamilton, McLean, VA
I decided to give the program a try since I believe knowledge is a life-time investment and never wasted. I took the class and paid my dues; I did exactly what was required during the course of the program. This included attending all the classes, doing and completing the assignments as required, social networking with the tutor and colleagues etc…and believe me, it worked. I successfully completed the program sometime arround spring of 2008 . About two to three months after, I was able to obtain a job with the National Science Foundation (NSF) as a Technology Analyst for Commercialization, and I am currently employed as a Business Process Reengineering (BPR) Specialist for Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH). I believe it is important to share my success story with anyone contemplating about the training program.
Tamali Roy, Business Analyst
I was a programmer to begin with but slowly developed an interest for Business Analysis. I joined Srinivas's training course and it helped me immensely. A crash course but covering all important basic concepts to start on Business Analysis. And I realised that his way of teaching is good for IT beginners too because of the design and structure of the training material. And my training was all on conference calls and web-ex. I can only imagine how helpful his class-room teaching would be.
Georgi Orlov, Business Analyst, The State Department ( grants.gov), Washington, DC
Your classes helped me to get confident in the BA field. I found a great job as BA in 2 months after finishing the class.
Priya, Business Analyst, Richmond, VA
I took the BA Training online in the year 2006. The course was very well structured covering all the facets of a Business Analyst's job profile – functional, information presentation and tools knowledge. It gave me new insights into the BA role responsibilities, communication protocols when interfacing with the business and technical stakeholders and an introduction to the latest requirements gathering tools in the market. The training material was very currant and in-depth. My trainer was Mr.Srinivas who was very well read and had profound understanding of the domain.Taking the course has helped me build more confidence and knowledge to perform better in my role as a Business Analyst.
Sathish Kumar, Technical Leader, Apposite Solutions Inc., Washington, DC
I took an in-class training session in Dec. 2007. This course was great! The instructor's practical experience in Business analysis and requirement gathering, complemented the course material. 'Real-life' examples assist greatly." Good sharing of information and techniques. I am already being beneficial as I am applying what I have learnt. I learnt so many new concepts as well as reinforcing what I should already know. Refreshing approach....
Nandita, Business Analyst
I was able to relate and make sense of things as the course was progressing. The teaching Methodology is wonderful, the interactive class with assignments and activities keep the mind working. Getting hands on on different Models was a learning experience. All in all I was satisfied with the training as it delivered what it promised.
