Training Overview

CMMC Fundamentals

(One Day)


DoD is migrating to the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Framework (CMMC). This new framework is intended to enhance the cybersecurity posture of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). The CMMC includes assessment and certification to ensure appropriate levels of cybersecurity practices and processes are in place to protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) residing on DoD industry partner networks.

The DoD end goal is for the CMMC Accreditation to be a requirement for all contractors and subcontractors conducting business with the DoD.

The primary goal of BAI’s CMMC Fundamentals training is to provide foundational CMMC knowledge that will help DoD contractors think through the implications of CMMC.

Those seeking more in-depth practical knowledge of specific requirements and steps should consider attending BAI’s 3 day CMMC Readiness Workshop.


The CMMC curriculum was created by cybersecurity practitioners with advanced expertise in the application of government cybersecurity programs.

CMMC Fundamentals is a one-day class designed for participants to be able to :

  • Identify who is impacted by the CMMC and when this will take place
  • Differentiate requirements for FARS and DFARS as they relate to CMMC maturity levels
  • Understand cybersecurity risk management principles as they apply to CMMC
  • Apply NARA guidance to determine CUI requirements
  • Differentiate between CMMC Process and Practice maturity
  • Identify the DFARS NIST SP 800-171 requirements and understand how they are integrated into the CMMC
  • Explain the current state of cybersecurity assessment as it relates to the CMMC

CMMC Readiness Workshop

(Three Days)

The CMMC Readiness Workshop supplements the CMMC Fundamentals class with two additional days.  The course is designed for participants to be able to:


At the completion of training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the appropriate guidance from NARA as it relates to CUI
  • Explain CMMC process maturity by associated levels and relevant indicators
  • Identify how to leverage NIST SP 800-171 requirements as they relate to CMMC requirements
  • Select Practices for appropriate CMMC Domains and representative Practices within each
  • Analyze effective policy components to support process maturity
  • Develop preliminary plans, and associated evidence to support a cybersecurity self-assessment and an external assessment
  • Define components of an action plan and transition roadmap for a CMMC implementation

Training Goals

The primary goal of the CMMC Readiness Workshop is to provide detailed practical application based CMMC training that will help DoD contractors work through CMMC requirements towards certification in the most efficient means possible. At the completion of training we anticipate students to have met the following goals:

  • Have a working understanding of the process of implementing security controls and submitting a CMMC package
  • Possess the knowledge to meet all CMMC requirements as mandated by DoD
  • Understand the expectations of DoD as outlined in CMMC guidance

Who should attend?

The CMMC Readiness Workshop is suitable for contractors in the DoD community as this will be a requirement for all contractors going forward.
