OMG Certified Expert in BPM 2 (OCEB 2)

The first two examinations in the OCEB 2 program, for the Fundamental and Business Intermediate levels, are available for registration and test-taking NOW

An updated version of the Technical Intermediate exam will follow about first quarter of 2017. Now you can OMG-certify your knowledge and skills in the most recent version of the industry-standard Business Process Modeling Language™, BPMN™ 2!

  • What's new in BPMN 2? A richer palette of event types, more capable depiction and use of data in process models, representation of business interactions in Collaboration Diagrams and Choreography Diagrams, and other features that help you model and execute the complex distributed processes that businesses employ today, and will rely on even more tomorrow.
  • What else is covered by the new exams? We've updated the coverage of more than just BPMN 2 - Updates throughout the exams bring them closer in tune with today's BPM practice and business need. One significant addition is Decision Management, covered (from appropriate points of view) in both Intermediate exams. Here's the Coverage Map page for the new Fundamental exam, and the Coverage Map page for the new Business Intermediate level. (Technical Intermediate details coming soon!) 
  • Should I upgrade my original OCEB Fundamental certification by taking the new OCEB 2 Fundamental exam? Yes, of course you should!  You are still certified in BPMN 1.x, but this specification is now obsolete - replaced by BPMN 2. To bring your credentials up-to-date and so keep up with industry expectations, you need to take and pass the OCEB 2 Fundamental exam and one or both of the Intermediate exams if your career suggests. If you take the original Technical Intermediate exam before the updated version publishes (expected about 1Q17), you will be able to request a voucher from OMG to take the updated OCEB 2 Technical Intermediate exam for free during its first year of availability. 
  • Where can I find out more about OCEB 2? If you've decided to take the OCEB 2 Fundamental exam and get certified, go to its Coverage Map and see what you have to study and learn; then go to OMG's landing page at Pearson VUE to register and schedule your test session. If you want to take the the Business Intermediate exam, go to its Coverage Map page instead.
