Being a knowledgeable business analyst and being an acknowledged one is not the same. That is why many of us tend so much to participate in various certification programmes. The one under consideration today is the Object Management Group (OMG) examination track for BPMN practitioners, OMG Certified Expert in BPM 2™ (OCEB 2™).
As of summer 2014, the programme consists of three examinations: OCEB 2 Fundamental (coded OMG-OCEB2-FUND100), OCEB 2 Business Intermediate (coded OMG-OCEB2-BUSINT200), and OCEB 2 Technical Intermediate (coming soon).
According to the official OCEB 2 Fundamental Coverage Map,
The OCEB 2 Fundamental Exam covers basic elements of Business Essentials and Business Modeling, Business Process, Business Process Management, Business Process Modeling, and essential and widely-used industry frameworks.
