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.
