Why the BIAN Certification?

The BIAN Foundation Exam is the exam for official BIAN Foundation level certification by the Banking Industry Architecture Network and is carried out by Van Haren Learning Solutions.

The BIAN Foundation Certification Exam is to test the delegate’s knowledge about the BIAN standard. This is the common framework for banking interoperability issues. By successfully passing the BIAN Foundation Exam delegates will achieve the BIAN Foundation level certification which ensures that they have been audited and have successfully mastered the required BIAN Foundation level. This includes their ability to describe and recognize certain knowledge about BIAN such as the benefits BIAN provides to financial services providers, the BIAN design principles and artifacts, the abilities to reduce integration cost and maximize interoperability.

Being certified in The BIAN Foundation level acknowledges that a certified professional has mastered the BIAN Standard and is aware that financial institutions can be modelled in a standard way, which enables maximum interoperability and re-use and minimum IT integration cost.

A BIAN Foundation certified person is able to recognize and apply this to other financial services providers.
