Technical Training Classroom

The Governor's Office of Small, Minority & Women Business Affairs is pleased to host the 2019 Technical Training Classroom. This series of FREE classes covers a broad range of topics designed to help small, minority, women, and veteran business owners improve managerial efficiency and gain an insightful understanding of the government contracting arena. 
 
Maryland is OPEN for Business, and we're excited to offer the Technical Training Classroom in collaboration with business resource organizations, small business entrepreneurs, and state agency partners.
 
We conduct a morning and afternoon session on the 4th Tuesday of each month (except December), and offer free onsite parking and WiFi access. Seating is limited, and advance registration is required for all classes.

We are currently developing our 2020 schedule.
Check back in the new year!
