"The best instructor I have encountered... Made some of the more complex concepts easy to understand."

No Death-by-slide!

From the foot-stompin' music greeting you as you walk into class, to the educational fun and games of your three-day experience, you'll see why our Intro to CMMI-DEV class is unlike any other. Stocked with 80% original content you can't get anywhere else, it's designed to keep you awake, engaged, and constantly learning!

"I never would have believed this 'dry' subject material could be presented as interesting and entertaining as it was."
You'll walk away with a true APPRECIATION for the CMMI...
not just an "understanding."

Key Unlocking the Mystery of CMMI

Practical EXampleS

Our pragmatic approach to the CMMI focuses on building business value, not shelfware. We'll help you unlock the mystery of CMMI with practical examples that our students consistently describe as "down-to-earth" and "relatable."

"Provided real-life, relevant examples for every question asked... Excellent mix of model theory and application."
Limited seating. Our classes sell out. (For real.)
