BCS Business Analysis Foundation e-learning

Learning technology

This online BCS Foundation course has been designed with the latest web technologies, so it works on Windows, MacOS, iOS and Android. It is fully responsive, so it fits any device and screen size – desktop, tablet and mobile. No browser plugins or installation files are required.

Best practice design

Like all our online courses, this BCS Foundation course has been designed using the latest best practices in e-learning.

Some competitors develop elearning cheaply by simply filming a trainer in a classroom. We don’t think that’s a good way for students learn, nor does it engage learners.

Our courses are highly interactive, and exercises have been designed to aid a deeper level of understanding, leading to longer-lasting learning.

We are confident that our interactive online courses will help you gain an understanding of business analysis so that you can sit your exam with confidence.

Benefits of elearning

Online training is ideal for busy people. By self-studying online rather than in a classroom there are some key benefits:

  • Saves you time – you don’t need to travel to a course venue. You don’t even need to go to an exam centre because you can take your Foundation exam online too.
  • Saves you money – the price of our BCS Business Analysis Foundation course is very competitive. It comes with Foundation examination too, so there are no extra costs to you.
  • Flexible schedule – you can study where and when you want – you only require internet access.
  • Flexible delivery – you can study on any device. You can even study on your mobile whilst on the move, or in the coffee shop!
