improvements made to the organization's Business Process
Model & Notation (BPMN) specification in Version 2.0.
The new examination also includes a section on Decision

Business Intermediate certificate, and confident that others
in the domain will realize the significance of this
accomplishment," said Jon Siegel, Ph.D., Vice President
of Technology Transfer and Director of Certification for
Holders of OMG certifications gain recognition for their
demonstrated commitment to their profession. An OCEB 2
certification can open the doors to job advancement and
promotion, or help with new career opportunities. OCEB 2
certified experts will have the distinction of demonstrating
their knowledge of the most up-to-date version of BPMN. OMG
encourages practitioners who hold the original OCEB Business
Intermediate certification level (or any of the original
OCEB examination levels) to upgrade to OCEB 2 to show that
they have kept their BPM knowledge and skills current.
OCEB 2 examinations are offered worldwide in English at
Pearson VUE testing centers and will cost $200 USD in native
English-speaking countries; $210 USD in countries where
English is not the native language and where testing time is
extended by 30 minutes. Candidates who have taken the
original OCEB Business Intermediate examination may request
an OCEB 2 discount voucher from OMG. Granted on a sliding
scale, the discount starts at 20% but reaches 100% for those
who took the original OCEB Business Intermediate after
