Learners of this course will be able to confidently apply the rules, methodology and style of the industry standard business process modeling notation.


BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation) 2.0 (level 1 & 2)

This BPMN training course teaches the use of the Business Process Modelling Notation v2.0 for business process analysis, mapping and modelling within the context of a business process management (BPM), improvement or re-engineering strategy. Industry best practice is taught for business process modelling at every level of abstraction. The models produced can be traced through to the requirements for any kind of computer system.

Learners will be able to apply the following in practice:

Capture and Document

The BPMN modeling standard provides the ability for business analysts to capture and document business processes from different sources in a clear and consistent way. This helps identify issues in the processes that may need to be resolved.

 Commnicate and Collaborate

A best practice in process improvement is to ensure relevant stakeholders, such as, process owners and business users are involved in the process. BPMN can be used to provide understanding of the detailed steps involved in each process ensuring both technical and non-technical stakeholders understand the concepts used.

Anaylze and Execute

Analysis of processes is one of the key benefits of using the BPMN 2.0 modeling standard in a business process analysis initiative. Analysis can help identify potential areas for improvement.


With BPMN in iServer, analysts are able to test and implement an automated process using a process simulator. This can help improve process performance, or test event driven behaviour of a process before implementing in the mainstream business.


Business Consultants, Business Analysts, Business Process Engineers, Requirements Gatherers, System Analysts and Project Managers with at least 2 years experience.

Learning Outcomes

Individuals certified at this level will have demonstrated their understanding of:

  • The basics and the necessary detail of the Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN)
  • How to map business process flow on Business Process Diagrams (BPDs) using events, activities, gateways, flows, pools and lanes
  • How to map choreographies and conversations
  • How to map private, public and collaboration processes
  • How to structure the business process model using collaboration, hierarchy and concurrency
  • How to map primitive process steps and business rules
  • How and when to use advanced events, activities, gateways, objects and artifacts

Course Agenda:

BPMN 2.0 e-learning Part 1:

  • Course Overview
    • In this module you will get an overview of the course, the key objectives, and the Orbus BPMN modeling tool that you will use.What is BPMN?
    • In this module you’ll learn about what BPMN is, the ways in which it is similar to and different from traditional flowcharts, and why understanding BPMN has become the critical foundation skill required for anything you do in BPM.
  • Getting Started with BPMN
    • In this module you will learn how to use the Orbus BPMN 2 Template to create simple BPMN diagrams that include tasks, gateways, and multiple end states.
  • Pools, Subprocesses, and Hierarchical Modeling
    • In this module you will learn about pools, lanes, and activity types, and the important role sub-processes play in hierarchical BPMN models.
  • Collaboration and a “Complete” Top-Level Diagram
    • In this module you will learn about collaboration, the message flows indicating interactions between the process and external entities such as the Customer, service providers, and other processes, essential to a complete process model.
    • In addition you will learn the rest of the shapes and symbols in the BPMN Level 1 palette.
  •  BPMN Concepts and the High Level Map
    • In this module you will understand the precise meaning of BPMN’s most fundamental concepts and why they are critical to properly structured models.
    • You will apply them in the first two steps of the Method, Scoping the Process and the High-Level Map.
  •  Creating BPMN with The Method
    • In this module you will translate the High Level Map into a top-level BPMN diagram, and then expand each High Level Map activity in a separate child-level diagram.
    • You will also learn how to add message flows to the model, replicating the collaboration from child to parent level.
  •  BPMN Style
    • In this module you will learn the basic elements of BPMN Style applicable to Level 1 process models.

BPMN 2.0 e-learning Part 2:

  • Events Overview and Using Timer Events
    • In this module you will learn about the various ways in which BPMN uses intermediate events, the important events you need to learn, and how to use the first of the “Big 3” event types, Timer.
  • Sending, Receiving, and Using Message Events
    • In this module you will learn about sending and receiving messages in BPMN and the proper use of Message events.
  • Using Error, Event Sub-processes, and the Other Level 2 Events
    • In this module you will learn how to use the Error event, and understand event sub-processes and the other Level 2 event types.
  • Branching and Merging
    • In this module you will learn more about branching and merging with gateways and conditional sequence flows.
  • Iteration
    • In this module you will learn how to use loop and multi-instance activities and multi-pool structures to describe iterative behavior in BPMN.
  • Following the Rules, and Next Steps
    • In this module you will learn about the BPMN metamodel, XML, and rules, and the importance of model validation, along with suggestions for further learning.
