OMG Certified Systems Modeling Professional™ (OCSMP™)
The OMG Certified System Modeling Language (SysML) Professional (OCSMP) certification exams objectively validate a candidate's knowledge and skills in SysML and Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). The examinations were designed by SysML & MBSE experts including many of whom co-authored the SysML specification.
OMG and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) worked closely to develop the SysML specification, its application to MBSE and its certification exam which nicely complements INCOSE's Systems Engineering Professional Certification Program. Explore the INCOSE-OMG Mutual Recognition Program for reciprocal discounts between programs and other benefits.
Anyone who uses SysML will benefit from OCSMP certification.
There are four OCSMP certification exams: Model User (MU), Model Builder Fundamental (MBF), Model Builder Intermediate (MBI) and Model Builder Advanced (MBA).

The OCSMP MU (prerequisite to all OCSMP MB exams) certification exam tests an individual's ability to interpret and understand SysML models, covering fundamental concepts and elements of all 9 SysML diagram types plus an additional set of concepts that cut across diagram types. With a OCSMP MU certification, an individual will be a productive member (e.g., engineer, software developer, hardware designer or test engineer) of a systems development team employing a MBSE approach using SysML.

The OCSMP MBF (prerequisite to the remaining OCSMP MB exams) certification exam tests an individual's knowledge and skills required to construct a basic SysML model of a system, covering model concepts and organization, purposes and benefits of modeling a system, basic requirements for capture and management, structure and behavior models, parametric models, allocation relationships, and use of stereotypes. With a OCSMP MBF certification, an individual will be a productive contributor (e.g., reliability engineer or quality test engineer) in modeling tasks performed by a systems engineering team employing a MBSE approach using SysML.

The OCSMP MBI (prerequisite to the OCSMP MBA exam) certification exam tests an individual's knowledge and skills used to develop system models using the full SysML feature set enabling more detailed and precise modeling of requirements, structure, behavior, and parametric constraints as well as those needed to define inter-relationships among model elements and diagrams, and assess aspects of model quality including conformance to language and method constraints. With a OCSMP MBI certification, an individual is fit to be a system modeling lead on a project or a top-ranked team member (e.g., lead systems engineer) who contributes independently to the model or system.

The OCSMP MBA certification exam tests an individual's knowledge and skills required to establish and support a systems modeling culture and environment, leveraging the capabilities of SysML and MBSE across the organization. High level topic areas include concepts for adapting SysML (e.g., metamodeling, profiles, model libraries and viewpoints), approaches to integrating SysML with other modeling languages (e.g., UML, MARTE, UPDMTM, and Modelica), approaches to integrating SysML modeling tools with other types of engineering tools (requirements management tools and configuration management tools) and methodology-related concepts and practices (e.g., assessment of the quality of the model). With a OCSMP MBA certification, an individual will play a lead role in establishing SysML-based MBSE at an enterprise or extending its penetration into new departments or product areas as well as define and establish new projects and support them through their lifecycle.
