TCC Introduces Commercial Awareness Course

Date: Friday, May 04, 2012

At TCC Training and Consultancy, the new BCS Commercial Awareness foundation course is a welcome addition to the BCS Business Analysis Diploma certification.

Formerly the ISEB Organisational Context module, leading to the ISEB Business Analysis Diploma, Commercial Awareness represents one of the biggest changes to the BCS Business Analysis certifications.

The module, introduced on the 1st April 2012, focuses on the commercial and organisational knowledge required for business analysis work - qualifying as one of the four certificates needed to gain your BCS Diploma in Business Analysis.

Some had criticised the ISEB Organisational Context module - the previous certification - as being too "UK centred", resulting in limited relevance for those working in organisations outside of the UK.

This update to the knowledge-based course - available to book now with accredited provider, TCC - is hailed as adding a more international and up-to-date interpretation to the Business Analysis certification.

The certificate in Commercial Awareness is aimed at individuals who want to gain an understanding of the operation, behaviour and structure of organisations.

What topics are covered?

  • Business operating models.
  • Internal organisational architectures.
  • Business culture analysis.
  • Business finance.

In line with other BCS Foundation level courses, the format of the exam is multiple choice - differing from the previous Organisational Context module. The exam lasts 1 hour; consisting of 40 multiple choice questions with a pass rate of 65%.

Business Development Manager Jonathan Tudor of TCC said "It is important for every Business Analyst to appreciate the organisational context of business change. Our new Commercial Awareness course introduces Business Finance and Organisational Behaviour to business analysis work. As the knowledge-based specialist module that we recommend for the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis, it ensures that our candidates really stand out in the workplace."

TCC - provider of high-quality training and consultancy - is taking bookings for the Commercial Awareness course from the beginning of April 2012.

With a course from TCC, delegates can rest assured that they are choosing an industry-recognised, and widely respected training provider.

TCC has been providing industry-leading training to both private and corporate clients for over 30 years.

Using only practising Business Analysts to conduct their business analysis training is a unique feature that sets TCC apart from many competitors, and ensures the highest standard of training for delegates.

TCC also recently introduced a Training Passport, which saves delegates over £1,500 on the modules needed to gain the BCS Business Analysis Diploma. The package is available with an optional preparation day to prepare candidates for the BCS Oral Examination.
