Certified Professional CMMC Training (CCP)

Course 2072

  • Duration: 5 days
  • Language: English
  • Level: Foundation

The Certified Professional CMMC Training (CCP), managed by Cyber AB (Accreditation Body), is a program through which an organization's cybersecurity program maturity is measured by their initial and ongoing compliance with applicable cybersecurity practices, as well as their integration of corresponding policies and plans into their overall business operations. Once rulemaking has concluded, and CMMC 2.0 (Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification) has been implemented, all organizations providing products or services to the United States DoD (Department of Defense) must comply with their applicable CMMC Level requirements. 

This course prepares students for the Cyber AB CCP (Certified CMMC Professional) certification, which authorizes the holder to use the Cyber AB Certified CMMC Professional logo, participate as an Assessment Team Member under the supervision of a Lead Assessor, and be listed in the Cyber AB Marketplace. The CCP certification is also a prerequisite for the CCA (Certified CMMC Assessor) certification.
