Upcoming Classes for 2021 and 2022

Abridge Technology regularly conducts classes of the CMMI Institute's official CMMI 2.0 courses. Upon request, one or more of these courses can be held onsite at your location. We also periodically hold public offerings of these CMMI classes. Currently, all these courses are being held using virtual collaboration environments (e.g., Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Adobe Connect, GoToMeeting, etc.) Under appropriate conditions, Abridge Technology will also support onsite class offerrings at the location of your choice.

These official classes cover CMMI 2.0 for Development, CMMI 2.0 for Services, and CMMI 2.0 for Supplier Management.

In addition to being delivered virtually, or potentially onsite at your location, the above CMMI courses are also occasionally offered at hosted public locations. Upcoming 2021 and 2022 public course schedules are often planned and conducted with little advance notice, but classes are held regularly. If interested, please call Abridge Technology at 703.729.6085.
