Introducing CMMC for Business Professionals: A Guide to Cybersecurity Compliance 


Logical Operations is excited to release their latest course, "CMMC for Business Professionals: A Practical Guide to Getting Ready for CMMC." This one-day training program aims to support organizations affected by CMMC in achieving compliance.

Participants who complete the course will receive the prestigious "CMMC Trailblazer" badge, fulfilled by Accredible.

CMMC training for professionals who don't need a certification

Understanding CMMC: Safeguarding Sensitive Information

CMMC, short for Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification, was developed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). It consists of cybersecurity practices designed to protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) within the Defense Industrial Base (DIB). The DIB encompasses over 350,000 organizations involved in the DoD vendor supply chain. This groundbreaking initiative ensures the security of sensitive information across the entire vendor base.

Meeting the Global Demand for CMMC Training

The demand for baseline training on CMMC compliance is growing globally, leading to the creation of CMMC for Business Professionals. One of the primary challenges faced by DIB organizations during CMMC preparations is ensuring that their entire team is ready. This training program offers a comprehensive understanding of the CMMC program, benefiting all levels of an organization, including the Executive Team. By enrolling in this course, organizations can simplify their path to CMMC compliance.

Starting Your CMMC Journey: Course Benefits and Insights

CMMC for Business Professionals serves as the starting point for Organizations Seeking Certification (OSCs) in developing their CMMC preparation strategy. The course helps companies grasp the scope and impact of CMMC. Within just one day, participants will gain valuable insights into the regulations, the CMMC Model, Assessment processes, and available resources for assistance.

Participants Earn a Badge to Showcase Their CMMC Training

CMMC Trailblazer Badge

All participants earn a “CMMC Trailblazer” badge. It identifies the person as a CMMC advocate and helps spread the message about the importance and urgency of becoming compliant. The Licensed Training Partners (LTPs) for CMMC were actively involved in the inspiration and execution of this badge.

Complimentary "Train the Trainer" Session

To meet the immediate demand and assist training providers in adopting CMMC for Business Professionals, Logical Operations will conduct a "Train the Trainer" session in September. This session will feature Tamara Hagen, one of Logical Operations' Instructional Designers involved in the development of the accredited CMMC courseware.

It’s a simple shortcut many of us inside Logical Operations take to refer to the product we publish as “a book.” I admit I’ve used this terminology myself when convenient!  

But I often take a minute to remind myself that the CHOICE instructional materials we design offer so much more. Here are some of the high-value features and components you’ll benefit from when you order a CHOICE “book” from Logical Operations: 

  • Our unique integrated Instructor Edition, with all Student Manual content included, and pagination consistent between the two editions. IE features that benefit you include: 
    • Marginal instructor notes to guide and support presentation. 
    • Activity responses inline with activity content - no flipping pages! (Students see suggested answers in a back-of-book Solutions section.)
    • Instructor preface with a courseware orientation, setup guide, timing and flow suggestions, and planners to map out your own presentation strategy.
  • Digital delivery of teaching slides through the CHOICE platform.  Because we provide these in PowerPoint format, you can modify, adjust, enhance, and tailor slide decks to make them your own.
  • Student self-check assessments through CHOICE.   
  • Staged data files and code examples to support our tested, scripted, no-fail activities. (And if you don’t want to set up your own on-premise, technical environments, check out our LogicalLAB virtual-lab offering!)
  • Digital Checklists, available on CHOICE and on our mobile app, for just-in-time job-task support linked to the course’s instructional objectives.
  • LearnTO and Spotlight media assets to enhance and extend the learning experience.   
  • The evergreen CHOICE delivery platform; for any given product number, your CHOICE instance will remain up to date for any revisions or refreshes for the life of that individual product.
