Become an SEI Partner for Team Software Process

As an SEI Partner for the Team Software Process (TSP), you can help an organization build self-directed, pure software teams or integrated product teams of 3 to 20 engineers.

The SEI has three types of TSP partner arrangements designed to fit the way you deliver or use TSP courses and TSP services.

  • Commercial-Use Partners can teach TSP courses and lead TSP teams outside their organization according to the specifications for TSP Partners.
  • Academic-Use Partners are educational institutions that provide TSP training as part of their academic curriculum. The SEI offers academic-use Partners the benefit of the PSP academic bundle—a grouping of PSP for Engineers course fees and PSP Developer certification fees at a lower academic rate.
  • Internal-Use Partners can sponsor SEI-Authorized PSP instructors, SEI-Certified TSP Associate Coaches, SEI-Certified TSP Coaches, and SEI-Certified TSP Mentor Coaches to deliver TSP Product Suite courses and TSP Product Suite services inside their organization. The SEI offers price incentives to commercial-use partners whose customers become Internal-Use Partners.


As an SEI Partner for TSP, you can help an organization establish a mature and disciplined engineering practice that produces secure, reliable software in less time and at lower costs.

By focusing on individual and team performance, TSP produces direct and measurable results, a faster return on investment, and a more flexible, tactical approach to improvement.
