OMG Unified Modeling Language 2 (UML 2) Certifications

Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a standardized visual language used in software engineering to specify, design, and document software systems.

UML provides a set of graphical notations that enables software developers, analysts or architects to represent various aspects of a system, including its structure, behavior, and interactions. UML diagrams serve as blueprints for software development, facilitating communication among stakeholders by offering a common, precise language for representing complex system designs.

OMG UML 2 certifications are the official proof of competence in analysis and modeling using UML. Successful completion of the certification enhances career prospects in various industries, including software engineering, system architecture, business analysis and project management.

There are three levels of UML 2 exams: Foundation, Intermediate, and Advanced.
