CMMI-DEV v2.0: Building Development ExcellencE

The official CMMI® Institute certified course, packed with our special bonuses

Why Take This Course

This one-day class builds upon your existing knowledge of CMMI V2.0 to provide you with a basic understanding of the CMMI Development (CMMI-DEV) view of the model.


The Foundations of Capability class is a strict pre-requisite.


This class is only available through in-person, instructor-led training by a CMMI Institute Partner organization.

In our delivery of this class, we also provide you with a true appreciation of the model. We'll give you examples and practical implementation guidelines -- not part of the "official" course.

Who Should Attend

This class should be attended by anyone who has had Foundations of Capability and may be:

  • Heavily involved in CMMI-DEV V2.0-based improvement

  • A candidate CMMI-DEV V2.0 appraisal team member

  • Interested in becoming a Certified CMMI Associate or Certified CMMI Professional, and would like to know more about CMMI-DEV for the exam.

  • Simply interested in learning about CMMI Development V2.0.

What You'll Learn

By the end of the course, you should be able to:​

  • Interpret CMMI-DEV V2.0, to serve effectively on an appraisal or process improvement team

  • Know what it takes to be CMMI-DEV Maturity Level 2, 3, and beyond.

  • Discuss each of the Practice Areas unique to CMMI Development v2.0:​

Course outline

Our CMMI V2.0 courses are composed of occasional lectures combined with lots and lots of exercises to make sure you understand the model. (Don't worry; the exercises are sometimes "games" -- and they're fun!) To receive credit for the class, students must actively participate throughout the duration of the course, without missing any class time.

You must bring a laptop or tablet to class, to access the online Model Viewer. We also strongly recommend you bring a pdf of the model, either on your laptop or in printed form (in case of technology problems).

Please realize the outline below is subject to change. We're constantly improving our courses based on student feedback.
