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-DEV over 112 times (yes, really!) to more than 2033 students - more than anyone else in the world! His onsite CMMI training classes at 47 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 32 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.

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."

Questions? Call Bill now at 571-232-0146. Or, simply 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!
