The 2012 Department of Defense Small Business Training Week is open to all Department of Defense (DoD) acquisition personnel including program managers, contracting professionals and small business specialists.  It is open to other Federal small business professionals by prior arrangement only. The Department of Defense recognizes that small business specialists are vital to maintaining the critical role which small business plays in meeting the DoD's mission.  

The Small Business Training Week will capture the current commitment by the White House to America's small businesses and the acquisition professionals who support them.  Members of the Defense Acquisition Workforce will receive 8 continuous learning points (CLP) that can be applied toward fulfilling continuous learning requirements.  All attendees will need to complete the post event survey to receive the certificate of completion.
