I found the OCSMP Accelerator™ SysML Training Course to be a great SysML course. I highly encourage anyone interested in learning SysML to take this class. The fact that there is a reference book for the course makes it more solid. Lenny led the course very effectively. He is a very patient and well-organized instructor. The course was well-balanced with SysML concepts and examples. In addition, Lenny made sure to provide excellent working questions after each new concept to instill the learning of the concepts. This course made SysML a fun language to learn. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning SysML.

Lenny's instruction format keeps the audience fully engaged. His sessions are thoughtfully interspersed with pop questions that enable students to apply the concepts and improve retention. The course's on-demand format is a perfect solution for busy professionals seeking to gain SysML knowledge at their own pace. In a nutshell, "All you ever wanted to know about SysML but were afraid to ask" is what this course is all about!

Before taking the OCSMP Accelerator™ SysML Training Course, I used to think I was fairly good at SysML. Now I know better. For example, I was unaware of some of the many rules and nuances of the SysML language that can make the meaning of a diagram quite different from what you first think. As a teacher, Lenny did an excellent job, and during the course I could really feel this is something he loves doing. Learning a standard can be quite boring, but Lenny managed to keep my interest up the whole time. His book, combined with the course and all its training material made me pass the OCSMP Model User exam with ease. The OCSMP Accelerator™ SysML Training Course is simply the best course I have taken in 20 years!

This course provides an excellent introduction to the SysML modeling language. Lenny’s clear and concise communication style, his real-time use of a sample SysML model throughout the class, and the frequent learning checkpoint quizzes are a successful formula for rapidly understanding a difficult subject. I highly recommend this course.

Lenny Delligatti combines his mathematics pedagogy experience with his thorough understanding of SysML to deliver this outstanding course tailored to the OCSMP SysML Certification exam. I can speak from personal experience that his logical and detailed presentation of the subject, in both the lectures and the book, SysML Distilled, was exactly what I needed to successfully pass this exam. I also appreciated his personal attention to my progress and response to my email questions as I viewed (and reviewed) the recorded lectures over a span of several months. For those who are excited about learning the emerging field of systems modeling and model-based system engineering, I can think of no better way than to get started with Lenny’s course.

Preparing for the time-constrained OCSMP examinations requires a thorough understanding of SysML's intricacies. Lenny's instruction and "formative assessment questions" are one of the best ways to gain the confidence needed to take and pass the OCSMP - Model User and OCSMP - Model Builder certification examinations.
— Tony Lindeman, PMP, CSEP-Acq, CBAP, OCSMP; Senior Systems Engineer
Lenny is a great instructor. He has deep knowledge of the intricacies of the SysML language. In addition to his deep understanding of the SysML syntax, Lenny is passionate about the subject and his passion and energy make for a fun and effective learning experience.

For my job I was told to find and do an introductory course on SysML. I spent a few days researching options and course providers, and in the end decided on Lenny’s course as it seemed, from the description and the trial module, to be the most thorough. I also liked that the course is complimented by a textbook that contains a single example that is progressively developed using the various diagrams. The model file for this example is also available for download, which is very useful for peering behind the diagrams at the bare bones of the model itself. My experience with the course and the textbook was a very positive one. I am most impressed with Lenny’s skill as an educator. Not only is he gifted at explaining potentially hairy concepts clearly, but he teaches in such a way that shows that he is invested in his students. He has patience when it comes to reinforcing concepts, and he will go beyond the allocated lesson time if it means concluding the lesson to his satisfaction. He also replies to emails in a timely manner. The lessons are also cleverly structured with breaks for assessment tasks as well as questions from the learners. Even though the course is not specific to a vendor tool, I was able to teach myself the basics of Cameo Systems Modeller by trying to recreate his diagrams in the tool. All in all, I found the course very useful and enjoyable, and I hope others benefit from it the way I did.
— Daniel Hayden, Graduate Support Engineer at Square Kilometre Array Organisation
The content of this course is just what anybody needs to quickly get started in SysML. Loaded with concepts, rules, and definitions delivered with precision by an exceptional instructor. I highly recommend it.

SysML, which is the biggest enabler for Model Based Systems Engineering, has a broad scope which may sometimes challenge the practicing systems engineer. To overcome such challenges, you need to comprehend SysML well, preferably in a strongly motivated manner. The OCSMP SysML Certification exams provide you with that motivation through which you can test and prove your proficiency in SysML. Lenny Delligatti's OCSMP Accelerator SysML Certification Training Course enables you to comprehend SysML and master every detail it offers to support your modeling efforts. Anyone with this comprehension at hand will certainly be ready for the OCSMP SysML certification exams. This training course deserves every cent you pay for it. The instructor is much more than an instructor. With his unique teaching skills, he always sparks enthusiasm. During the course, you will encounter many checkpoint questions which will prepare you well for the certification examinations. This course is a real fortune for those intending to practice MBSE.
— Özgür Eser Akdemir, M.S., Chief Researcher at TUBITAK UZAY Space Technologies Research Institute
Course material is well structured and made easy to understand even for people without a software background. Lenny explained the concepts in depth. He is a dedicated and patient teacher.

The subject area of MBSE (SysML/UML/OCL) can be very complex and daunting to the uninitiated. Many of the books and courses on MBSE dive right into the middle of this complex subject matter with little introduction to the core concepts. Lenny's book and his online course take a more gradual approach to the material; this provides a great introduction to the subject and a solid foundation to build upon. This foundation is sufficient for the student to pass the first two exams for the OCSMP certification without additional study or materials (after all, it worked for me). Additionally, Lenny is a great teacher who gets the ideas across and keeps the material entertaining. I highly recommend this course!

Instructor was excellent in the knowledge of the subject and taught it in an easy to understand fashion, with great examples to review and recall from previous sessions.
— Kevin Orr, Systems Engineer at Boeing
Excellent course, instructor provides great instruction that engages the student and ensures comprehension of the material. The instructor's broad knowledge and positive teaching style creates a learning environment that promotes student success. Highly recommend this course for systems, software, and hardware engineers preparing for the OMG Certified Systems Modeling Professional (OCSMP) certification exams or for continued professional growth.
— Carlos De Los Santos, Product Engineer at Harris CapRock Communications
This a great course for anyone who wants to understand and learn the SysML language. I highly recommend taking this class if you want to pursue the OMG Certified Systems Modeling Professional (OCSMP) certification exams or if you just want to expand your knowledge of the subject. The instructor has a broad knowledge of the subject and a great teaching method that helps the student learn easier.
