The RPOs and RPs in the CMMC ecosystem provide advice, consulting, and recommendations to their clients. They are the “implementers” and consultants, but do not conduct Certified CMMC Assessments. Any references to “non-certified” services are only referring to the fact that an RPO is not authorized to conduct a certified CMMC assessment.
A Registered Practitioner (RP) delivers a non-certified advisory service informed by basic training on the CMMC standard. By contrast, a Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) or Certified CMMC Assessor (CCA) delivers advice that is based on their rigorous training on what is and is not acceptable during an actual CMMC-AB Certified Assessment.
