Host said: What is the best training for becoming a management and program analyst ? What types of ongoing training or certifications are necessary to be an effective management and program analyst?
What do non-traditional career paths look like?
I have heard that data analysis skills, such as fluency with Excel, are highly desired. Also, an ability to write about content on which the program analyst is not a subject matter expert—so, technical writing chops—might help, as well.
Finally, I believe project management certifications such as PMP or CAPM don't hurt.
