1.-What is the Certified Business Process Professional (CBPP®)?
The Certified Business Process Professional Program is a professional certification program that requires experience, knowledge, and a commitment to professionalism, and is not a training program.
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 CBPP® is unique in our rapidly changing market place. This certification has been developed by and for BPM practitioners. It is the first independent professional examination and certification program in the area of BPM.
CBPP® has been designed to comply with international certification standards and is now the internationally recognized standard for BPM professionals. The certification will initially be offered by ABPMP through our chapters and affiliates worldwide, representing the largest qualified constituency of BPM practitioners.
The Certified Business Processing Associate certificate is focused on the new BPM practitioner. The target for this certification is the practitioner who has completed (or is in the process of completing) his or her undergraduate degree or has been working in a business process management related role for at least one year.
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 CBPA® certification allows people who are newer to the profession to demonstrate their understanding of the concepts, approaches, techniques and technology that are needed to succeed in BPM and helps them stand out among their peers. These types of skills are highly valued by major global corporations, government, and consulting organizations across all industry groups.
The CBPA® certificate is more than an academic certification or a certificate of study. It is intended to independently verify that the individual holding the certificate has a solid level of basic competency in the area of business process management and may have actually applied the concepts in day-to-day work experience.

Much of the content contained in the exam is based on the BPM Common Body of Knowledge. A complimentary copy of the BPM-CBOK® is available through a paid membership in ABPMP International or in one of (link) our affiliated BPM organizations in Europe and Brazil. It is also available for direct purchase on our website.
Those who apply will receive an examination overview handbook with a list of recommended reading sources – books, articles and columns by leading business process management authors and other tips to help prepare for the exam. These will acquaint the CBPA® applicant with various viewpoints on business transformation concepts, approaches, techniques and methods adopted by ABPMP.
This reading will serve as the foundation for independent study and discussion with other practitioners. A growing number of organizations offer courses and review materials to help you prepare for CBPA® examination through the ABPMP International Registered Training Provider (RTP) Program.
Hands-on project experience with business process modeling, performance management and rules management is another way to qualify for the CBPA® certification exam. This hands-on experience is considered valuable in providing an understanding of how the concepts and techniques addressed in the recommended reading are being applied in real-world situations. Many credential holders obtain their hands-on experience by working on projects involving business software implementation, business process analysis, six-sigma, quality control, or business process improvement projects. Others gain their experience by working in day-to-day operations involving business process monitoring or control.
In addition to the study tips provided in the CBPA® Exam Overview Handbook, there is a sample exam available for candidates. It has 20 multiple choice questions that are representative of the exam and the format used.
