Intended Audience

The four courses that make up the CMPIC certification program have been developed to provide a solid foundation in Configuration Management (CM) to all those who need a thorough understanding of configuration management principles, processes, tools, and workflows; and how to achieve integration to provide an effective and efficient enterprise solution. Obvious candidates are CM and SCM managers; CM administrators, specialists, and analysts; DM managers and specialists; document control staff and personnel directly responsible for overall CM success.

These courses will also provide vital knowledge to others involved in CM as well; i.e. IT system administrators; hardware, software, manufacturing and facility engineering; QA personnel; test personnel and project managers.

Course examples have been collected from various environments. Students from IT, software, hardware, manufacturing and facility environments will feel equally comfortable in relating the lecture, discussions and materials to their own environments and situations.

What if you already have CM Certification?

Stay on top of your game! Experience and education are key to successful configuration management. The CMPIC certification courses will expose even the most experienced personnel to new approaches and techniques. If you were certified years ago, it may be time to update your CM knowledge base and skills.
