Government Contracting Classroom Sidebar Graphic

How it works:

Just like a class you’d attend in person, courses are taught by a live instructor on a scheduled day and time. The Web-enabled Instructor led training experience has much in common with the classroom equivalent. Students:

  • Receive course materials in advance
  • Participate in real time using a broadband connection
  • Interact directly with the instructor and their peers

From your computer, you’ll link to an instructor in a live, real-time, interactive learning experience. You’ll become part of a virtual classroom where you can ask questions, seek guidance and participate in class discussions and interactive exercises.

7(j) Eligibility includes firms that are owned by one of the following:

(a) a socially and economically disadvantaged individual whose firm may or may not be a participant in the 8(a) Business Development Program;

(b) a firm located in a high unemployment or low income area, as de-fined in the U.S. Census Bureau's County and City Data Book and in the Poverty Guidelines issued by the U.S. De-partment of Health and Human Services (HHS);

(c) a firm owned by a low-income individual
