TMMi Professional Certificate

Want to improve the way your organisation works? In this TMMi® Professional course, you will learn why process improvement with TMMi (Test Maturity Model integration) is important, ways to identify opportunities, and the benefits of successfully improving said improvements.

This TMMi Professional certificate is not only for those looking to improve their organisation. It 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.


TMMi is the leading model for test process improvement. It is applicable to both traditional and Agile environments. Organizations and individuals are increasingly adopting TMMi to improve their test process and have their test process or test organisation accredited. Attendees will achieve a detailed understanding of the TMMi model, including the goals, process areas and practices for each maturity level. They will also learn how to apply and use TMMi in an Agile context. Afterwards, they will be able to guide and advice an organization or project when using the TMMi model as a basis for their test process improvements.

TMMi based assessments, both formal and informal, are also discussed during this 2 day course. The course will be a mixture of lecture and many practical exercises to allow attendees to gain a detailed understanding of the TMMi and the various ways it can be used in practice. This 2 day course is fully updated and based on the latest version of the TMMi Professional syllabus (released January 2020). Participants are throughout this course also prepared to successfully take the TMMi Professional exam.

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