SEI Introduction to CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV) v. 1.2

This is the official, SEI-authorized three-day course. We present the same SEI slides in the same order as everybody else... but we also add our own proprietary bonus content, to re-inforce key concepts (and to occasionally provide some well-needed levity).

Day 2 features our optional Open Season lunchtime session, where our instructor will spend up to 45 minutes addressing any questions you have about the CMMI.

Our public class hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. days 1 and 2, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. day 3. We provide a 45 minute break for lunch (delivered), and several coffe breaks during the day.
