"The best instructor I have encountered... Made some of the more complex concepts easy to understand."
You'll walk away with a true APPRECIATION for the new CMMI V2.0.
Not just an "understanding."

"I never would have believed this 'dry' subject material could be presented as interesting and entertaining as it was."

If you haven't taken Intro to CMMI V1.3 you'll need to start your CMMI V2.0 journey with Foundations of Capability rather than this Upgrade Training. (It's also where you might want to start if you've had formal CMMI V1.3 training but feel a bit rusty.) Foundations covers basic CMMI V2.0 concepts, the model architecture, and the "core Practice Areas" (i.e., the best practices common to the pre-defined benchmark model views: Development, Services, and Supplier Management).

For Foundations to be truly useful, you'll need to supplement it with one or more Building Excellence classes.)

If you're heavily involved in your organization's CMMI Development V2.0 initiative, you'll likely want to take the Building Development Excellence class. In fact, it's a requirement for anyone serving on a CMMI-DEV V2.0 appraisal team. (Exception: If you've already had Intro to CMMI-DEV V1.3 and have served on a formal CMMI-DEV V1.3 appraisal team, you can simply take the one-day Upgrade Training.)

This class covers content specific to CMMI-DEV V2.0 (e.g., the Technical Solution and Product Integration Practice Areas), guidance on using CMMI V2.0 in a development environment, and -- more than anything else -- plenty of exercises to reinforce your knowledge.

The Building Service Excellence class is for people deeply involved in a CMMI Services V2.0 initiative. It's also a requirement for CMMI-SVC V2.0 appraisal team members. (Exception: If you've already had Intro to CMMI-SVC V1.3 and have served on a formal CMMI-SVC V1.3 appraisal team, you can simply take the one-day Upgrade Training.)

The course introduces content specific to CMMI-SVC V2.0 (e.g., the four Service-specific Practice Areas) and guidance on using CMMI V2.0 in a service environment. Count on the class to be extremely exercise-intensive.

About the Online Model Viewer and CMMI Associate Exam

* CMMI V2.0 is available online, via subscription only. Your tuition includes access to the online Model Viewer for 30 days. Access typically begins a few days before class; we recommend you download a pdf copy of the model and bring it to class in case of technology issues.

** Although passing the Certified CMMI Associate exam is not required to complete the course, it is required to serve on a CMMI V2.0 appraisal team. Your Upgrade Training tuition includes a credit to register with the CMMI Institute to take this exam online. The credit must be used within 30 days after the class begins.


Tuition and Enrollment

Online registration ends at 5 pm Eastern time on Thursday the week before class, or when the class is full -- whichever comes first.

If class is full, you'll receive a message stating this when you attempt to register. E-mail us to be added to the waiting list, in case of any cancellations.

Our Guarantee

If you're not satisfied with any of our classes, you may leave within the first half of class and receive a full refund.

We're confident, of course, that this won't happen. We simply want to make your enrollment as worry-free as we can.


See you in class!

* Our price-matching policy (for public classes): We will discount up to 20% to match a directly comparable competitive offering if (1) you inform us prior to enrolling, (2) the class is within a 50-mile radius of Washington DC, (3) the class start date is within four weeks of ours, and (4) key amenities are similar (breakfast, lunch, etc.).
