Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Online Training

This intermediate CMMC prepares learners to advise and lead an organization in maintaining compliance with Department of Defense expectations and guidelines for protecting sensitive data.

The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is the Department of Defense's certification that verifies whether independent contractors are protecting sensitive data adequately. For the hundreds of thousands of small, medium and large companies all over the country who do work with the DoD, earning a high mark on their security maturity can mean the difference between earning their contract with the DoD or being passed over.

Once you're done with this CMMC training, you'll know how to advise and lead an organization in maintaining compliance with DoDD 8570.

For anyone who leads an IT team, this CMMC training can be used to onboard new security technicians, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a security reference resource.

Introduction to CMMC: What You Need to Know

This CMMC training has videos that cover DoD cybersecurity standards topics including:

  • Recognizing the best practices for controlling government sensitive data
  • Defining and understanding government terminology
  • Navigating and reading government regulations
  • Managing security principles in accordance with relevant government mandates

Who Should Take Introduction to CMMC Training?

This Introduction to CMMC training is considered specialist-level training, which means it was designed for security technicians and auditors. This Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification skills course is designed for security technicians with three to five years of experience with DoD cybersecurity standards.

New or aspiring security technicians. If you're a brand new security technician, the first question you should ask yourself about the CMMC is whether your current company — or companies you might apply to — does any work with the DoD. Earning the CMMC and understanding the regulations that the DoD uses to guide it will be an essential tool for companies whose livelihoods depend on government contracts. You could proactively lock your career into place by earning the CMMC early.

Experienced security technicians. If you've already been working for a few years as a security technician for a company who does business with the DoD, earning the CMMC could make you indispensable. No one wants to read government regulations or master regulatory procedures -- but if you're the one who knows them and gets certified, you're suddenly extremely valuable.
