OMG’s certification programs let you demonstrate your knowledge of its widely-used IT industry standards.
OMG-Certified UML Professional (OCUP)
Awarded at three levels—Fundamental, Intermediate, and Advanced—the OCUP Certification demonstrates candidates’ knowledge of OMG’s Unified Modeling Language (UML), the industry standard for modeling.
OMG-Certified Expert in BPM (OCEB)
This certification extends from OMG’s BPM domain specifications (BPMN, BMM, BPMM) to knowledge and skills in Business Process Management. Divided into a Business Track and a Technical Track, the five OCEB certifications cover material important to a candidate’s ability to participate in or lead real-world initiatives in enterprise BPM.
OMG-Certified Systems Modeling Professional (OCSMP)
Concentrating on OMG’s Systems Modeling language (SysML), OCSMP coverage extends to aspects of model-based systems engineering (MBSE). The first level, Model User, covers the knowledge and skills needed by stakeholders, specialists, or others who contribute to a model-based engineering project. Building on this foundation are three levels targeted at Model Builders, and team and department leaders.
OMG-Certified Real-time and Embedded Systems Specialist (OCRES)
Awarded at the Intermediate and Advanced levels, the OCRES Certification demonstrates candidates’ knowledge of OMG’s suite of specifications that form the basis for distributed Real-time and Embedded computing. (The OCUP Fundamental Certification also serves as the Fundamental level for OCRES.)
