This article lists down a list of free business analyst training online. These courses are mostly video based except one of the them, which is text based. In my research, I could not find a completely free business analyst training course anywhere in a structured manner, chapter wise. But some websites did have multiple business analysis related videos and I have tried to put them in a sequence for easy viewing and comprehension.
This list of Free business analyst courses online is compiled for professionals, who wish to become business analysts. These courses are no way comprehensive (Freebies can’t be), but they are good resources to get started.
You can straightway jump to Business Analysis Tutorials.
