Introduction to CMMI-DEV v1.3

WE MAKE IT INTERESTING, PRACTICAL, AND (almost) FUN

Join nationally-recognized (google him!) speaker Bill Smith for this energizing delivery of the official Introduction to CMMI-DEV v1.3 course, at our upscale training center just outside of Washington, DC.

Bill has averaged a stellar 4.9+ (out of 5) feedback rating while teaching Intro to CMMI 88 times (yes, really) to 1572 students - more than anyone else in the world! His onsite CMMI training classes at more than 27 organizations including AT&T, Lockheed Martin, the IRS, and the Department of Homeland Security have earned rave student reviews and multiple on-the-spot customer awards.

YOU'LL WALK AWAY WITH A TRUE APPRECIATION FOR THE CMMI -- NOT JUST AN "UNDERSTANDING."

A Carnegie Mellon alumnus and former IBM developer, Bill combines 29 years of management and engineering experience with practical insights and a passionate delivery unlike anyone else. He's been given the Software Engineering Institute's prestigious Outstanding Member Representative award for "Leadership in Software and Systems Engineering," and has won several presentation awards at industry CMMI conferences.

Plus, it doesn't stop once class is over: all graduates are invited to join our free, exclusive Alumni Club, CMMI Rocks! Personally connect with over 300 of our CMMI-savvy grads, ask follow-up questions on our forum, and attend special alumni-only events. (We also have a pretty cool Facebook presence.)

ANY INSTRUCTOR CAN TALK TALK TALK FOR THREE DAYS. WE MAKE SURE YOU ACTUALLY LEARN.

So the choice is yours: sit like a freakin' zombie for three... whole... days... in that boring guy's course and walk away confused and sleepy, or see rock'n slides and actually GeT eXcItEd about the CMMI in our famously student-friendly classroom. (We even play game shows!) Find out firsthand why "Bill's realistic perspective... and his enthusiasm are contagious."

Enroll with confidence today... Leading Edge has never canceled a class, unlike (ahem) many others who deliver CMMI training. Reserve your seat while there's still room!

REGISTRATION ENDS AT 5 PM ET ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4 -- OR WHEN CLASS IS FULL.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

You'll receive:

  • Three days of CMMI-DEV training. See our detailed Intro to CMMI-DEV course description and agenda.
  • The standard SEI / CMMI Institute material, including a bound copy of class slides plus the hardcover book CMMI-DEV Third Edition.
  • An official CMMI Institute certificate, upon successful completion. (Yes, this is the official certification you'll need to serve on a SCAMPI appraisal team or to take more advanced CMMI courses.)

But you'll also receive our above-and-beyond bonuses:

  • Bonus slides. We sprinkle our own proprietary CMMI training slides and activities throughout the standard material - to clarify concepts, illustrate examples, and add a bit of (much-needed) humor.
  • Jam sessions. Optional discussion sessions that allow us to dive into popular topics that the standard CMMI training material doesn't cover in detail.
  • Food! Lite continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, and beverages.
  • CMMI-DEV Wall Chart. You'll be the envy of your office. (While supplies last.)
  • CMMI-DEV Reference Card. Wow, how much more fun could it get!? (While supplies last.)
  • Fun giveaways!
  • Award-winning CMMI Instructor Bill Smith.

And did we mention... a fabulous learning environment?
