Supporting your CMMC journey!

Do you have questions about how CMMC is going to affect your organization? Are you looking for someone to provide training for your team, partner to discover your readiness, or schedule your formal CMMC Level 2 assessment?


Edwards is an Authorized CMMC Third-Party Assessment Organization (C3PAO) with Provisional Assessors on staff, ready to support your formal CMMC assessment. Contact today!


Edwards is an RPO, but more importantly, our consultants are also CMMC Provisional Assessors. In fact, many of our consultants teach our CCP classes and developed our curriculum. Learn more.


As an LPP, Edwards developed the curriculum to train the assessment community using cybersecurity SMEs and ISDs. Our courses prepare individuals to do the job an OSC expects when they hire a CMMC Professional.


As an LTP, Edwards uses our own renowned curriculum to train members of the OSC team, consultants, supporting organizations (e.g., MSPs), and of course the assessors themselves. View our courses.
