Bring out the best in yourself with the CBIP program

Passionned Group’s CBIP program doesn’t just help you bring out the best in yourself, it also helps you to capitalize on the opportunities offered by Business Analytics and Data Intelligence in your organization. The title of Certified Business Intelligence Professional is gaining more attention, and having the title significantly boosts your career opportunities.

The quality of our CBIP training

But what’s perhaps more important: the quality of our CBIP training. You’ll be trained by the best independent Business Intelligence trainer in the Netherlands. Participants give our BI training course an average score of 9. This training actually goes deeper and broader than is required of the CBIP certification. You’ll not only learn to get certified, but also to use it in practice.

The CBIP track

Aside from the requisite experience working in Business Analytics, a solid theoretical base is important to successfully complete the CBIP track. That’s why this training will provide you with all the relevant theory, supplemented with many practical examples. You’ll learn how to approach complex BI issues effectively.

Practical lessons with our CEO

On top of that, as a part of your preparation for the CBIP exam, you’ll have two days of practical lessons with our Chief Information Officer, Dick Pouw MBA. This will greatly increase your chances of attaining the title of Certified Business Intelligence Professional. For the exam, you’ll choose one of these four specializations:

  1. Business Intelligence & Analytics
  2. Data Management & Governance
  3. Data Integration & Interoperability
  4. IS/IT management

CBIP specialization as a foundation of different functions

The different specializations all prepare you for certain functions. They provide a foundation. The first specialization focuses on the role of BI manager, the second and third prepare you to be a Data warehouse manager, data governance manager, or data architect. The final specialization will prepare you for an IT management function with a large data component, like the Chief Data Officer.
