We’re so glad you are here.
You are a business analyst, or want to be a business analyst, and you are looking for the missing link that will tie your career together so you can earn the respect, title, and salary you truly deserve.
Ultimately, you want to experience more confidence and success in your career. You want to do fulfilling, financially rewarding work leveraging timeless skills. You want to solve business problems and make the world a better place.
We are here to help. Bridging the Gap was established in 2008 and has helped thousands of business analysts take their careers to the next level.
Bridging the Gap provides online training and certification to new, aspiring, and I’ve-been-doing-this-forever-but-no-one-ever-taught-me-how business analysts.
We build our profession one business analyst at a time. Success starts with you.
What sets us apart is that we have a no-nonsense, very practical approach to being a business analyst. We do not teach theory that doesn’t play out in the real world. All of our training, and all of our support, is based on practical experience of what it really takes to be successful.
This is one of the many reasons our online learning model includes months of instructor support. Not because the content requires months to go through (it’s actually broken up into short pieces that are easy to consume on the go), but because we want you to have time to learn, apply, experience real-world challenges, and get your questions answered by experienced business analysis professionals.
This is how you experience true success in your career.
When you join a Bridging the Gap program and do the work, you’ll experience immediate improvements in the work you are doing NOW. Your employer will love it and you’ll get on track with your career, perhaps for the first time (or the first time in decades).
