Guide your organisation in better testing processes.

This course will explain why process improvement is important and how you can identify opportunities in your organisation. It also covers the costs and benefits from improving the way organisations work.

This certificate is not only for those looking to improve their own organisation, but also serves as a stepping stone for those who want to formalise their skills in TMMi and potentially move towards becoming a TMMi and/or lead assessor.

This certification is built upon an internationally-recognised process improvement framework and assessment model. The course syllabus has been developed and released by the TMMi Foundation.

Learning outcomes:

  • Be able to eloquently explain to management the business importance of test process improvement.
  • Gain the ability to guide and advise an organisation or project when using the TMMi model as a basis for their test process improvement.
  • Provide support in the interpretation and understanding of the TMMi model, including the relationship of TMMi to the CMMI model.
  • Participate in programs for improving the test process within an organisation or project and identify critical success factors.
  • Act as a co-assessor in informal TMMi assessments.


The TMMi Professional course is for skilled testers who want to use the TMMi (Test Maturity Model integration) model to improve testing processes in an organisation, including:

  • Testers or test leads wishing to elevate their career into test process improvement.
  • Test managers or anyone involved in test process improvement seeking a solid understanding of the TMMi model.
  • Anyone wanting to accredit their skills as a TMMi Professional and continue their path to become a TMMi Assessor or Lead Assessor.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option.
