On-Line Government Contracting Courses for 7(j) Eligible Firms

Eligible 7(j) participants are invited to a free training series to learn critical cybersecurity concepts, approaches to protecting their resources and intellectual property, and mandatory federal contracting requirements for both prime and sub-tier subcontractors.

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. Students receive course materials in advance, participate in real time using a broadband connection and 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.
