About OMG® Certification Programs

Why should you obtain an OMG® Certification?

  • Help employers evaluate your potential as a new hire, or analyze and evaluate job performance!
  • Motivate yourself to enhance your skills and knowledge!
  • Gain recognition of your competency and prove that you are committed to your profession!

OMG currently offers certifications in three areas:

  • OMG Certified UML® Professional (OCUP 2™)
    OMG's worldwide UML® Certification Program provides an objective measure of your UML 2.5 Specification knowledge-and tells the rest of the IT community that you have serious credentials. OCUP 2 Certification will benefit you by giving you an important documentation to present to employers and clients. It also benefits companies looking for skilled UML practitioners like you, by giving them a basis for making hiring and promotion decisions. The UML Certification Program offers three levels of certification: OMG-Certified UML Professional 2  Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced. Each level has its own examination, testing progressively more complex concepts and usage of the UML 2.5 Specification.

  • OMG Certified Expert in BPM™ (OCEB 2™) 
    BPM practitioner will benefit from the OCEB Certification by giving you an important, well-regarded credential to present to employers, clients and prospects. It proves that you not only know how to model and analyze business processes, but also are familiar with the many concepts and frameworks that underline Business Process Management. As the use of BPM grows by leaps and bounds, more and more organizations are looking for developers with BPM expertise. The BPM Certification Program offers five levels of certification on two tracks: Business and Technical. Recognizing that BPM practitioners on the Business Side and Technical Side of our industry use different sets of concepts and tools, the program splits into two tracks above the Fundamental level to define separate Intermediate and Advanced level certifications.

  • OMG Certified Systems Modeling Professional™ - OCSMP™  
    The program awards the OMG Certified Systems Modeling Professional certification at four levels. The first level, OCSMP Model User, covers a wide range of essential MBSE and SysML knowledge and skills and so enhances the résumé of those who contribute to a model-based systems engineering project. Building on this foundation, since all lower levels will be prerequisites for the levels above, are three levels targeted at model builders and advanced model users.

    These levels, termed OCSMP Model Builder - Fundamental, Intermediate, and Advanced, cover advanced topics with an emphasis on the interconnectedness among the different model viewpoints that gives MBSE its advantage over conventional engineering methods.

  • OMG Certified Real-time and Embedded Specialist™ (OCRES™) 
    OCRES is a rigorous, comprehensive, and fair test of a person's knowledge of OMG's specifications for distributed real-time and embedded computing. If you're using OMG's standards for real-time and embedded systems, here's your opportunity to show the world you know your stuff. There are three Exams in the OCRES Program: OCUP™ Fundamental, and OCRES Intermediate and Advanced. Because modeling skill is basic to software design and implementation, the fundamental level certification defined by the OMG Certified UML® Professional (OCUP) program is the prerequisite for both OCRES certification levels.

OCUP, OCRES, OCEB and OCSMP are joint programs of the OMG and the UML Technology Institute (UTI).
