BPM Training

Business Process Management Training by Queensland University of Technology


All participants who attend all days of a training course will receive a certificate of attendance designed and signed by QUT. For those participants who would like to test the learned skills, as well as have a formal recognition of their BPM proficiency and professional qualification, there is an option to obtain a certificate of achievement. This option requires passing a written exam relative to the certificate sought.

We offer five certificates on three different certification levels (strategic, operational and technology) to cater for the needs of different roles within a BPM program. The following table illustrates the certificates available for the three levels and the target audience.

OperationalBusiness Process ModellingBPM methodologistsBusiness (process) analystsWorkshop facilitatorsProcess owners
Business Process Improvement
Lean Six Sigma Green Belt*
TechnologyBusiness Process Technologies (forthcoming)Business (process) analystsSolution architectsSoftware engineers

Each certificate is matched to one or more BPM training courses that cover the content required for undertaking the respective exam.

Obtaining a certificate of achievement also offers the opportunity of gaining academic credit towards undergraduate and postgraduate study courses at QUT, such as our Bachelor or Master of Information Technology, or our dedicated Master of Business Process Management. This option has to be combined with formal enrollment at QUT, with which additional costs are associated, and which is subject to eligibility of the participants.

The following table shows the mapping between certificates, training courses, and QUT academic units for which academic accreditation can be obtained.
