Your organization can benefit from online training that meets your specific timing and geographic reach without the high cost of travel.

In this online, virtual course, participants learn a proven process for capturing strategic business opportunities in any industry. Participants learn high impact skills for qualifying opportunities and strategically positioning their organizations for successful bids.

The online course model consists of 3 live, virtual, instructor-led sessions conducted in a single day.
