About the course

AssistKD's Systems Development Essentials using Agile online learning course covers a number of systems development life cycles, both defined and evolutionary, and examines the context in which different lifecycles could be applied before focusing on an Agile approach. Some of the key areas this course looks at include examining how the systems development effort can be organised, understanding requirements, stakeholders and roles in an agile environment, and considering techniques that support iterative development such as prototyping, hothousing and scenarios.

How is the course structured?

The Systems Development Essentials using Agile online learning course allows users to learn the syllabus content at their own pace, in their own time. Combining interactive course content, tutor audio, exercise questions, multiple choice questions, and a sample examination, the course forms a flexible and comprehensive path to the BCS Systems Development Essentials examination. For the duration of the course, delegates will also receive access to an electronic version of the Systems Development Essentials using Agile course manual that is provided with classroom courses. 

Is there an exam?

Yes. This online learning course thoroughly prepares participants for the BCS Systems Development Essentials examination. The exam is open-book, scenario-based and lasts for 1 hour, preceded by 15 minutes reading time. The certificate contributes to both the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis and the BCS International Diploma in Solution Development.

The examination is included in the price of the online course. This examination can be sat at one of our public examination sessions. Further instructions of how to book the exam will be given by the AssistKD online learning team upon purchase.

At present, due to the Covid-19 crisis, public examination sessions are not running. However, for delegates attending a virtual or online course, the exam may be taken at a later date when restrictions have been lifted.

Anything else?
