Update on BOCP-BOE certifications

Some readers of my blog have asked whether there is a specific certification route for XI 3.1.

Well, not that I’m aware of. But remember, I am not an official BusinessObjects source!

To gain your BOCP-BOE, the exams to take are:

  • SABE201
  • SABE301
  • SABE401

This will get your basic BOCP-BOE up to XIR2 level.

To get up to XI3 level, you will need to take:

  • SABE501V3.0

I’m not aware of an additional exam for XI3.1.

People also ask whether the third party providers such as Pass4Sure, etc. are worth the investment (Are you serious?).

In one word – NO.

You will get everything you need to know for these exams with the following:

  • Taking an official classroom/elearning course
  • Becoming familiar with the relevant BOBJ PDF content
  • Experience

That’s all you’ll need.

And finally, readers have asked about the certificate. For what it’s worth, mine took about 6 weeks to arrive. I’ve heard reports that they do take longer than that.

However, if you do need to show your employer something, why not show them your exam result printouts?

    Since there is specific exam of Web Intelligence . Is there any specific exams for Universe Designer and BOCP-BOW does not cover Universe.

    • weldblog Says:

      No. There aren’t any exams on universe design unfortunately.

      You would have thought it merits an exam though. Getting the universe right is as important, if not more so, than the report presentation side.
