OCSMP Certification Exams

This class is not specifically designed as preparation for the OMG Certified System Modeling Professional (OCSMP) examinations, but the course material corresponds very closely with the coverage maps for Levels 1 and 2 certifications and would be a useful part of exam preparation.

Computer and Software Resources Required

Student is responsible for obtaining licenses (may be temporary) of MagicDraw with SysML and ParaMagic plug-ins for the hands-on tutorial exercises. Student will also need video playback software for MPEG4 files.


Videos and other course materials are copyrighted and solely for use by the designated student and may not be distributed or placed on-line for general availability. The student may have use of the course materials for one year.
