On Monday, June 28th, the CMMC-AB held a town hall meeting. Here are the top four takeaways:

  1. Get to know the key players at CMMC-AB

Matthew Travis, CEO of CMMC-AB kicked off the meeting and was joined later by Melanie Kyle Gingrich, CMMC-AB VP of Training and Development as well as most of the members of the CMMC-AB Industry Advisory Council (IAC), including Yong-Gon Chon CMMC-AB Board Director and Chair, IAC, Michael Baker, Allison Krache Giddens, Brian Thompson, Timothy Trickett, and Jake Williams

2. Lessons learned from the first C3PAO

Caleb Barlow, CEO of Cynergis Tek is proud to head the first C3PAO and has offered to publish in a few weeks the lessons learned from his experiences in preparing for this certification.

3. Want to become a CMMC Assessor?

Melanie Kyle Gingrich gave an update on the status of CCP and Assessor training. Now that we’ve reached Phase Gate 1, it will take another 8 weeks till the Licensed Partner Publishers (LPP’s) complete the content for the training materials. Training will take another 4 weeks beyond that. Tests have not been prepared yet but development is underway.

4. Don’t be fooled by anyone claiming to be a CPP

No one is certified yet, although some are claiming they are. The CCP certification exam beta launch is targeted for Q4 of this year with a general release in 1Q of 2022.
