OMG Certified UML Professional Overview

OCUP is a rigorous, comprehensive, and fair test of a person’s knowledge of OMG’s specifications for unified modeling language. The worldwide UML Certification Program provides an objective measure of your UML 2.x Specification knowledge.

OCUP Certification will benefit you by giving you an important documentation topresent 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 Exams

There are three OCUP Exams - Fundamental, Intermediate and Advanced. Each Exam tests your knowledge of a different subset of the UML.

 

FUNDAMENTAL A member of a UML development team should have the knowledge and skills to acquire this certification.
INTERMEDIATE A senior member or group leader of a UML development team should have the knowledge and skills to acquire this certification.
ADVANCED A Technical Manager of a UML development project should have the knowledge and skills to acquire this certification.

Each level has its own examination, testing progressively more complex concepts and usage of the UML 2.X Specification.  All three exams cover the Superstructure; the Advanced exam also covers the Infrastructure. The maintenance updates that yield the point releases 2.1, 2.2, and the forthcoming 2.3 did not modify the language enough to affect examination coverage, so you will be well-prepared regardless of the point version you are familiar with.
