BALTIMORE, Md.—The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification Accreditation Body (CMMC-AB), which serves as the authorized training, credentialing and accreditation ecosystem for CMMC, has just named the first 11 Licensed Partner Publishers (LPPs) to join the CMMC-AB ecosystem.

“This is just the first wave of organizations that will support the certification process with training curricula. This is exciting for us because we now have partners that are in this with us together and can help us scale to meet demand” stated Ben Tchoubineh, director, CMMC-AB Board of Directors, chair, Training Committee.

The following companies were in the first cohort of LPPs:
•    Captiva Solutions, LLC
•    Celerium, Inc
•    Community Colleges of Spokane, Corporate & Continuing Education
•    Cyber Soldier, Inc
•    Data Intelligence Technologies, Inc
•    Edwards Performance Solutions
•    Holistic Information Security Practitioner Institute (HISPI)
•    Infosec Institute, Inc
•    Logical Operations

The qualifiers to become an accredited LPP are: at least 200 hours of published coursework/curriculum in technology, cybersecurity, auditing or similar content, at least 2 years of publishing history of content in technology, cybersecurity, auditing or similar, and at least 3 suitable client references. In order to become certified, the LPPs must sign the Code of Professional Conduct, sign the LPP License Agreement, pay the application/acceptance fee, and be subject to an Organizational Background Check through Dun & Bradstreet and have a DUNS number.

Over the next few months, the LPPs will take the exam objectives that are being developed by the CMMC-AB and create educational curricula that map back to those objectives to help assessors and others meet them. The LPPs will have the option and flexibility to create content in multiple formats: video, print publication, e-books, instructor-led synchronous learning, and/or guided self-paced on-demand asynchronous learning.
