This course provides in-depth knowledge of the CMMC Model and technical background required for an Assessor to successfully participate on a C3PAO assessment team or a consultant to successfully prepare an organization for their Level 2 CMMC Assessment. In this 5-day deep dive of the CMMC model, we navigate multiple company scenarios to demonstrate the application of the NIST 800-171 Framework/CMMC controls, relevant assessment objectives, and evidence requirements as they pertain to CCA learning objectives. This course is taught using multiple scenario OSC environments varying in size, locations, and on-prem vs. hybrid systems.
Students will receive in-depth technical and administrative perspectives from Provisional Instructors who are also Provisional Assessors currently working through NIST SP 800-171 assessments. After completing the course, students will be eligible to sit for the CCA exam.
This is a 5-day course.
- Learn how to perform, manage, and score assessment objectives in accordance with the established methods and requirements of NIST SP 800-171 DoD Assessment Methodology, Version 1.2.1.
- Participate in the CMMC Assessment Process throughout each phase, with a thorough understanding of assessment outputs and expectations.

The CCA Exam Prep Course builds on knowledge from the CCP Exam Prep class. While passing the CCP Exam is not a prerequisite for participation in the CCA course, we advise students to come to class with knowledge of the material covered on the CCP Blueprint.
During the CCA Exam Prep Class, we will take a deep-dive into Level 2 Scoping, the Assessment Process, and the individual practices listed in the CMMC Assessment Guide Level 2. Please come to class with a familiarity with these topics’ source documents.
Certified CMMC Assessor course participants are not permitted to take the CCA exam until they have completed a CCP course and passed the CCP exam. It is recommended that prospective students review the CCA Blueprint and requirements for becoming a CMMC Assessor prior to registering if interested in receiving full CCA certification with the accompanying benefits.
