The North Carolina Military Business Center (NCMBC) announce the Defense Contractor Academy to be hosted at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte. The Defense Contractor Academy will offer advanced instruction and a certificate of completion to existing, small business defense contractors to provide the tools needed to grow the defense contracting portion of their business portfolio.
A series of nine classes will be offered over an nine-week period, once a week, beginning January 19, 2012 and ending March 15, 2012. Each session will include presentation of material and either a panel or guest business(es) to discuss their experiences regarding the topic of the session.
“The Defense Contractor Academy provides the advanced skills businesses need in federal business development, competitive processes and federal contracting procedures to grow in the federal marketplace – and to grow jobs in North Carolina,” said Scott Dorney, Executive Director of the NCMBC.
