How to register for an OMG exam?

OMG exams like UML 2 (OCUP 2), BPM 2 (OCEB 2) or SysML (OCSMP) are offered worldwide at Pearson VUE testing centers or online.

Before taking an exam

There are some things to consider before taking an OMG exam.

  • Do you want to pay for an exam as an individual or want to buy exam vouchers for a group of people?
  • How and where do you want to take an exam? Do you prefer a traditional way of going to a test center or you want to take it online?
  • Do you need to take an exam in a short term or you can wait?

Exam payment

There are two main payment methods:

  • buying an exam voucher - this option is better when you need to pay for more then one exam, e.g. if you want to pay for exams for a whole group of people. If this is your case check "How to buy OMG exam vouchers?".
  • paying directly during the exam registration process - it's easier and faster if you pay for your individual exam. See further instructions to check how to do this.

Where and how you want to take the exam

Do you want to go to a Pearson VUE testing center to take an exam or you prefer the comfort of an online option from your home or office?

In case of taking an exam at a test center all you need to carry on is how to get to the test center physical location on time and remember take your identification documents.

If you want to take an online exam you need to remember that preparing all infrastructure including computer, internet connection and so on is your responsibility. In addition can’t mumble and no one can interrupt you or communicate with you during the exam. If it happens your exam will be immediately interrupted.


Testing centers have limited availability. You should book your exam date in advance. You can book an online exam immediately - sometimes even on the registration day.

Once you have made these decisions you are ready to register for an exam.

Before exam day

Test your system:

  • Use the same testing space, computer, and internet connection you plan to use on exam day
  • We recommend testing on a personal computer with a webcam. Work computers generally have more restrictions that may prevent successful delivery
  • Do not take your exam in a setting with a corporate firewall (including VPN). If you are taking your online exam in your office, please alert your Network Administrator to the OnVUE system requirements
  • Make sure you have a reliable, fast internet connection to download your exam and support a webcam stream

Prepare your testing space: 

  • Find a quiet, disruption-free, well-lit space. Please be aware that background light or the sun rising/setting could create visibility issues for the proctor
  • You will be required to take four photos of your testing space during check-in. We recommend using a mobile device
  • You can only use one monitor
  • Your desk should be clear

On exam day

  • Pearson VUE recommends logging into your account 30 minutes early to start the check-in process and to allow for any troubleshooting
  • This allows optimal preparedness but does not guarantee an early admittance or start time
  • If you are more than 15 minutes late after your scheduled exam time, you will be unable to begin your exam and you are unlikely to receive a refund

To check into your exam: 

  • Select Check-in to start exam on your confirmation, reschedule or reminder emails)
  • Log in:
  • View your upcoming appointment
  • Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the check-in process
