Not sure if anybody has noticed the BPM certification programme that the OMG is developing and made mention of earlier in the year?
It is currently in Beta testing and according to the The OMG-Certified Expert in BPM (OCEB) Beta programme website it should be rolled out toward the end of 2008.
The OCEB™ program – OMG-Certified Expert in BPM – will consist of five examinations, granting five Certifications. Above the single Fundamental level, the program splits into two tracks – one Business-oriented , the other Technically oriented.
The certification levels are as follows:
- OCEB Fundamental
- OCEB Business Intermediate
- OCEB Technical Intermediate
- OCEB Business Advanced
- OCEB Technical Advanced
OMG used authors from various organisations to design the scope of the certifications and write the questions for the five OCEB™ examinations. It seems to be very US focusssed and as yet I have not seen any evidence of OCEB on the European news wires.
