Recertification

The “Certified Business Process Professional CBPP” certificate is valid for three years. To continue to use this title for a further three years, holders must renew their certificates via the recertification process. During this process, certificate holders must provide evidence that they have been working in a relevant professional capacity and pursuing continuous further training in the BPM field during the preceding three years.

1.   Requirements for recertification

Applicants must have a “Certified Business Process Professional CBPP” certificate which is still valid or which expired less than six months ago and be able to prove that, since their initial certification/last recertification, they have …

–  worked at a rate of at least 40% FTE (i.e. 500 hours per year) in a professional capacity with specific relevance to the field of business process management; and

–  amassed at least 60 hours of specialized BPM training.

2.   Weighting of specialized BPM training activities

Time spent participating in events or producing deliverables on BPM-related topics will be counted towards the total training requirement as follows:

–  For the following cases, one hour of classroom tuition will be counted as one hour towards the recertification requirement (up to a maximum of 30 hours in total):

     — Training activities at universities or universities of applied sciences

     — Training activities for which accredited ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) points are awarded

     — Seminars or training courses with external trainers

     — In-house training activities

–  Participation in conferences or symposia on BPM-related topics specifically for training purposes: the time counted will be the net lecture times excluding breaks (up to a maximum of 30 hours in total)

–  Seminars or presentations given by and based on documents produced by the applicant (up to a maximum of 30 hours in total), weighted as follows:

     — 2.5 hours for presentations lasting up to 30 minutes

     — 5.0 hours for presentations lasting up to 60 minutes

     — 6.5 hours for presentations lasting up to 4 hours

     — Number of seminar hours x 2 for seminars lasting more than 4 hours

–  Publication of BPM-related books, articles, white papers and blogs: 1 hour per A4 page (up to a maximum of 30 hours in total)

–  Private study: number of hours worked x 0.5 (up to a maximum of 20 hours)

–  Other related certifications (for example IPMA, PMI, ISO 9001, ITIL, CobIT): 20 hours per certification (up to a maximum of 20 hours in total)

–  Leading position in a professional association with a close connection to BPM: 10 hours per year (up to a maximum of 30 hours in total)

Other professional and training activities may be accepted by the certification office on a case by case basis. In these cases, each hour of activity will count as one hour towards the certification requirement.
