About the course

AssistKD's Systems Analysis and Specification using UML course provides participants with the skills they need to become effective systems analysts. 

The course introduces delegates to a number of the systems development lifecycles and provides a practical introduction to key systems analysis techniques such as: 

  • Requirements elicitation techniques, including: 

                 - interviewing 

                 - sampling 

                 - scenarios 

  • Systems modelling techniques, including: 

                 - use cases

                 - class modelling

                 - state modelling

During the course, participants apply these techniques to a variety of real-world exercises.

Each examination involves a one-hour, open book examination. These examinations may be taken during the course, at an agreed examination session or at a public examination session. Both of these certificates are core modules for the BCS International Diploma in Solution Development and specialist modules for the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis.

This course enables participants to work towards SFIA skill BSMO, level 4.
