Would you please tell me step by step the procedure to become a SCAMPI Lead Appraiser (LA)? I am currently working with a Maturity Level 5, company in India with 5.5 years of relevant experience in Process and Quality Consulting. It would be really great if you could provide me with some references, emails, and sites as a roadmap.
Here are the steps and requirements for becoming a SCAMPI Lead Appraiser. This information is directly from the SEI’s web site.
To become an instructor or Lead Appraiser, you must successfully complete authentic SEI courses. The first prerequisite course for becoming either an instructor or Lead Appraiser is the Introduction to CMMI Version 1.2 course. This courses is available from SEI Partners (see SEI Partner Network Directory and Guide to Services) or from the SEI. The second prerequisite is the Intermediate Concepts of CMMI Version 1.2 course that is available only from the SEI.
CMMI Version 1.2 Instructor Training is the final course leading to candidacy as an Introduction to CMMI Instructor. After successfully completing this course, the candidate instructor must also be observed, by an authorized SEI Observer, teaching the SEI's Introduction to CMMI V1.2 course. Upon successful completion of the observation, the instructor is then authorized as an Introduction to CMMI Instructor.
SCAMPI Lead Appraiser Training is the final course leading to candidacy as a SCAMPI Lead Appraiser. After successfully completing this course, the candidate Lead Appraiser must be observed leading a SCAMPI A appraisal using a CMMI model and be approved by an authorized SEI Observer.
You can find more information on the SEI’s site by searching for SCAMPI Lead Appraiser. Of course you will have to either upgrade to v1.3 or take the v1.3 classes when the new versions are released later this year.
