About Our Training Programs
Small Business Workshops
Get the information you need to start, grow and manage your business by attending one of our no fee or low-cost workshops geared towards the small business owner’s experience. These seminars are generally taught in small classes of no more than 20 people allowing for personalized interaction between the SBDC instructor and attendees and providing opportunities to address individual questions. Our training topics range from basic start up knowledge to technical financial assistance, strategic planning, leadership, marketing and more.
Business training programs and seminars are scheduled throughout the year to provide current and practical information on various business management and operation skills. Nominal fees may be charged for some events.

Teach at the SBDC
The UHV SBDC is looking for qualified, talented, and enthusiastic trainers willing to share their business expertise with seasoned entrepreneurs as well as those new to business ownership. If you have the right credentials and enjoy speaking in front of a group submit the form below to see how you can be added to our lineup of business trainers!
You’ll be asked to provide a list of specific topics and detailed outlines/agendas including time allocations for each section. If it is a topic that we think would interest our clients we will invite you to present a mock presentation for some of our staff members, similar to a dress rehearsal or dry run. If we like what we see we will proceed with scheduling the seminar or workshop.
It’s important to remember that our events are strictly educational and not a forum to sell products, services, books, and/or training programs. One of the reasons our clients come to our events is that they know they will receive the most current information from a group of well-respected and informed instructors.
