If you are targeting a single maturity level, skip the intro class and take this one!

The SEI has just released two new classes for practitioners whose companies are targeting a specific maturity level.  Attendees who are interested solely in a single level, and especially those who wish to skip Maturity Level Four and Five material, will appreciate this new class.

"CMMI ML2 for Practitioners" will prepare attendees to develop processes and work in a Maturity Level Two company.  This class runs two and one-half days.

"CMMI ML3 for Practitioners" will do the same thing for attendees who work in a Maturity Level Three company.  This class runs two and one-half days.
