Hello,
I am planning to take PBA exam. By filling application, I see that is needed to have 35 contact hours.
My question are:
1. Is it valid same contact hours for PMP and PBA. I have allready passed PMP exam and before taking exam I had to have 35 contact hours. Can I reuse them for PBA?
2. Any R.E.P. list exists for PBA contact hours?

I would appreciate for the help.

Thanks in advance.

br,
Audrius

From what I understand on the PMI website is that the contact hours are not the same for a PMP versus a PBA. The PMI specifically states, '35 contact hours of education in business analysis'.
I did find an REP list on the PMI website as well here, ccrs.pmi.org/search/providers
Search the list and find specific references to PBA.
I hope this helps at least somewhat.
