What does it mean to be BPM Certified?

BPM Certification means that an individual has:

  • Achieved appropriate professional experience and/or education
  • Passed a rigorous examination of 130 questions
  • Agreed to abide by a professional code of conduct
  • Committed to maintaining an active credential through meeting continuing professional development requirements

The BPM Certification is unique in our rapidly changing market place. The BPM certifications have been developed by and for BPM practitioners. They are the first independent professional examinations and certification programs in the area of BPM. The BPM Certifications have been designed to comply with international certification standards and are now the internationally recognized standards for BPM professionals. The BPM certifications will initially be offered by ABPMP through our chapters and affiliates worldwide, representing the largest qualified constituency of BPM practitioners today.
