Bruce Silver has periodic updates on his training offerings, and when we pick up on them I'll reference them here, because I think his courses offer a good opportunity for people to get a better sense of BPM. The latest update is a bit of an F.A.Q. for BPMN Training, and includes information about certification, standards, etc.:
I provide BPMN training through a variety of channels.? Right now, the only one that offers certification is BPMessentials, which is a joint venture of Bruce Silver Associates and itp commerce, maker of the Process Modeler for Visio BPMN tool.? The standard BPMessentials online training (wtc.01), private on-site 2-day classes, and the 2-day public classes offered four times a year through Brainstorm/BPMInstitute all include certification.? An abridged BPMessentials Level 1-only class (wtc.l1.01) and classes based on Microsoft Visio Premium 2010 do not come with certification.
