Technical Training Classroom

Technical Training ClassroomOur Technical Training Classroom is designed to help small business owners gain an insightful understanding of the State's procurement process. In 2018 we expanded our curriculum to include topics that will also help improve managerial efficiency.

Maryland is OPEN for Business and we're excited to offer these FREE small group classes. Our goal is to help you compete with confidence in both the public and private sectors.

Bring a pen and plenty of paper to take notes because we're going to "get into the weeds" during these 2-hour sessions. We offer a morning and afternoon session on the 4th Tuesday of each month.
 
All sessions are held in the 1st Floor Conference Room at:
The Governor's Coordinating Offices
100 Community Place
Crownsville, MD 21032

 Registration opens three weeks in advance of each session.
