OMG Completes UML 2 Certification Program With Release of Advanced Exam and Study Guide
Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced Designations now available for OMG Certified UML Professionals

Needham, MA – January 22, 2018 – The Object Management Group® (OMG®) today announced publication of the Advanced examination in the OMG Certified UML Professional 2™ (OCUP 2™) Certification Program. The Advanced exam is for IT architects and software developers at the highest level who make decisions on analysis, design, and development proposals and evaluate the results based on models drawn using the OMG’s Unified Modeling Language™ (UML®) Version 2.5. Also newly available is a study guide to prepare candidates for the Foundation-level exam.

"Experienced software architects shape and direct an organization’s product, making certification of their knowledge and skills critical to project success," said OMG Vice President of Technology Transfer and Director of Certification Dr. Jon Siegel. “Our UML certification program is designed to test a practitioner’s complete palette of UML knowledge and skills. We focus on functionality and usage rather than language details and aspects to test a candidate’s ability to construct and interpret model diagrams.”

Also newly available is The OCUP 2 Certification Guide: Preparing for the OMG Certified UML 2.5 Professional 2 Foundation Exam, by noted author Michael Chonoles. It prepares candidates to take the Foundation level OCUP 2 exam as it teaches the UML 2.5 language and good modeling practices. OCUP 2 Foundation-level certification is a prerequisite to certification at the Intermediate and Advanced levels. The guide, published by Elsevier and available at many bookstores, includes practice exam material, sample questions and exercises, tips, and points to remember throughout.

The OCUP 2 certification program consists of three levels—Foundation, Intermediate, and Advanced. Examinations are offered worldwide in English at Pearson VUE testing centers. Candidates who took the original OCUP Advanced exam may request vouchers to take the OCUP 2 exam for a discount or free, depending on original exam date, before 31 January 2019. See the OCUP 2 Program FAQ for details.

OMG would like to acknowledge our Certification Partner: the UML Technology Institute Co., Ltd.
