NEEDHAM, Mass., June 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- OMG™ welcomes No Magic, Inc. as a Sponsor of the OMG Certified Systems Modeling Professional™ (OCSMP™) certification program, which certifies practitioners of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) using the OMG Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™). No Magic joins the UML Technology Institute (UTI) and founding sponsors IBM®, Lockheed Martin and Sparx Systems in support of this program. For more information, please visit

Through this program, OMG will award the OMG Certified Systems Modeling Professional™ (OCSMP™) certification at four levels. These levels – OCSMP-Certified Model User, and OCSMP-Certified Model Builder – Fundamental, Intermediate, and Advanced, cover progressively more advanced topics with an emphasis on higher level applications of SysML and the interconnectedness among the different model views that gives MBSE its advantage over conventional engineering methods.

"Our sponsors make the OCSMP program possible," said Jon Siegel, Ph.D., OMG Vice President of Technology Transfer and Director of Certification. "No Magic's support will help bring the benefits of certification to the field of MBSE, allowing practitioners to benchmark their skills and knowledge, and employers to identify and benefit from the work of these certified systems engineers."

"SysML is becoming increasingly more important among systems engineers because it supports them as they design from a broader systems-based perspective," said Gary Duncanson, President and CEO of No Magic and member of the OMG's Board of Directors. "Becoming an OCSMP sponsor was a perfect match for us because our new online SysML training (and on-site course) provides the most comprehensive and convenient forum to learn SysML quickly and easily. Users will be able to begin designing systems using MagicDraw functionality and the MagicDraw SysML plug-in. Our SysML training courses are ideally designed to prepare individuals for the SysML OMG Certified Systems Modeling Professional (OCSMP) certification exam offered by OMG."

Additional online training courses in UML and UPDM/DoDAF/MODAF are also available from   No Magic. The company offers on-site training in UML, SysML, UPDM/DoDAF/MODAF, Soa/SoaML™ and requirements management.

Another important supporter of OCSMP is the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), whose Systems Engineering (SE) certification CSEP complements OCSMP. By design, these two programs will cover the SE domain including both conventional and model-based approaches.

Following the successful pattern established by OMG's three current certification programs developed in partnership with the UML Technology Institute (UTI) – OCUP™ for UML® Modelers, OCEB™ for BPM Practitioners, and OCRES™ for Real-time and Embedded Systems Developers – the OCSMP examinations will be computer-based and administered by Pearson VUE through their network of secure testing centers.
