Helping Potential SBIR/STTR Applicants


This course is designed for service providers whose work tangentially touches the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. It’s for those of you who want to be better prepared to assist clients who appear to be a good match for either of these two programs.

Comprised of ten lessons, this course will help service providers feel more confident in the guidance they provide. Individuals who complete the entire sequence of 10 lessons will receive a Certificate of Completion from SBA. This course is offered in a compressed eight-week format with two lessons the first and last week week. The remainder will have one lesson per week. Participants should anticipate that each lesson will require 2 hours of preparation time in addition to participation in a live webinar associated with each lesson. Interested parties also have the option of registering for individual lessons rather than taking the entire course. However only those who complete all Lessons will receive a Certificate of Completion from SBA. This is highly recommended as a form of Professional Development.

Helping First Time SBIR/STTR Awardees


First time awardees have a great deal to learn about how to be a responsible government contractor. Without appropriate guidance, it is easy for a firm to find itself faced by a number of problems because they did not understand the importance of many things at the outset: keeping timecards; allocating funds appropriately to different pools; how to negotiate agreements with universities; and the list goes on and on…. The purpose of this course, is to help you, the service provider, understand what it means to be a government contractor – so that you can better assist first time winners.

This course is divided into eleven lessons, each with a discussion thread and an individual homework assignment. A condensed version of the course can be completed in six weeks and will require 5-6 hours of your time per week. Everyone who completes the course will receive a Certificate of Completion from SBA.
