Test Asssement Method (TAM) is an accredited assessment method for conducting process assessments against the TMMi.
To use the TAM, or have access to it, requires training in its use, which is done through attending training. (There is training for both Assessors and Lead Assessors.) Once training on the TAM has been received (including on the TAM Pack) you are able to license the TAM Pack.
The TAM Licence Pack provides you with a licence to use the TAM and includes supporting artifacts and tools to enable formal and informal assessments to be conducted with confidence. It is not obligatory to license the TAM Pack having attended Assessor training, the training received in the use and application of the TAM will be useful in understanding the approach to TMMi assessments.
