The CMMI Institute is always looking for qualified organizations to become partners for the licensed delivery of CMMI and DMM products and services. The CMMI Institute Partner Network disseminates trusted, leading-edge CMMI Institute services and technologies throughout the global business community. Partners are organizations that are carefully trained, licensed, and evaluated by CMMI Institute to deliver official courses, methods, and processes.

The links above describe the standard processes used by all our Partners, so you will want to ensure that you can fulfill these obligations if your application is approved. The process and knowledge needed to get certified as an instructor, appraiser, or expert is standardized as well, but is not necessarily part of becoming or being a Partner.
