CMMC Compliance Training

Training for DoD Contractors

These courses are the beginning of establishing a Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) pathway to achieve your desired level of cybersecurity maturity and succeed as a DoD contractor or subcontractor.

There is no cost for Washington State businesses currently in the Defense Supply Chain or those that are interested in supplying defense agencies (directly or in the supply chain).*

Vendors outside of Washington State can sign-up for the suite of CMMC courses at a cost of $125.

*Course fees are covered thanks to a generous DoD OEA grant awarded to Impact Washington through the Washington State Department of Commerce.
