The Cyber AB Approves ecfirst’s CMMC CCP 2.0 Training Material

Prepares Compliance, Cyber & IT Professionals for the New DoD CMMC Standard

August 3, 2022, Irvine, California—ecfirst, an Authorized CMMC Licensed Partner Publisher (LPP) announced today that their Certified CMMC Professional 2.0 (CCP) training materials have been formally approved as The Cyber AB Authorized Training Material (CATM). The approved training materials are now available for purchase by Licensed Training Providers (LTPs).

You are never forced into exclusivity,” Mr. Pabrai said. “Further, LTPs get complete access to the ecfirst CMMC Academy site rich with flashcards, quizzes, reference materials, templates and practicals to prepare students for the CCP certification exam.”

“The release of ecfirst’s curriculum for the CMMC 2.0 CCP certification today is significant,” Mr. Pabrai continued. “LTPs may now offer relevant world-class CMMC content for their students while receiving unconditional value for students looking to take their career and knowledge further and deeper in the CMMC space. Our unconditional commitment means just that. No conditions!”
