This three-day course introduces managers and practitioners, appraisal team members, and process improvement teams to CMMI fundamental concepts. The CMMI for Development (CMMI-DEV) model helps organizations to improve their ability to develop and maintain quality products and services.


This course enables participants to:

  • describe the components of the CMMI-DEV model and their relationships
  • discuss the process areas
  • describe the model content

The course is composed of lectures and class exercises with ample opportunity for participant questions and discussions.

Successful completion of this course requires that participants actively participate in classroom discussions and exercises in all three days, not missing any classroom time.  This course fulfills a prerequisite requirement for many courses requiring an official Introductory CMMI course (e.g., Intermediate Concepts of CMMI, SCAMPI Lead Appraiser Training, and Understanding CMMI High Maturity Practices). This course also fulfills a prerequisite if you want to be a CMMI-DEV SCAMPI appraisal team member (ATM) or become a Certified CMMI Associate.

The Introduction to CMMI for Development course is offered by the CMMI Institute and by certified CMMI Partner Instructors. 


The Introduction to CMMI for Development does not require any specific preparation.
