They are designed to comply with international certification standards and are now the internationally recognized standards for BPM professionals.  

The first level, Certified Business Process Associate (CBPA®), is for individuals who may be fairly new to the business transformation profession. The CBPA® certificate is focused on the new BPM practitioner. The exam demonstrates the credential holder’s understanding of business process improvement and transformation concepts across the disciplines covered by the BPM Common Body of Knowledge(BPM-CBOK®).

The second level,  Certified Business Process Professional (CBPP®), is designed to differentiate expert practitioners from others by proving that they have the competency skill levels and experience needed to succeed in improving or transforming business operations. Practitioners who sit for the CBPP® exam are expected to have a high level of hands-on expertise in these areas. The exam is for experienced professionals who have a minimum of four years of practical on the job experience on BPM projects.
