Saint Lucia’s Ministry of Commerce, Business Development, Investment and Consumer Affairs will  be conducting the first phase of a certificate training programme for key business support organizations on the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Model.

The training will be undertaken in collaboration with the Organization of American States (OAS) and the University of Texas at San Antonio. This training initiative is a continuation of the initial consultation which was held in March, 2012.

The SBDC Model focuses on promoting growth, innovation, productivity and revenue for small businesses through improvements in the business administration of firms within the Small and Medium Enterprises or SMEs sector.

The training will be done in four modules, over a period of four months and will address areas of structure, service training, and standards of a Small Business Development Center. A number of organizations have been selected to join in this training which will be held at the Palm Haven Hotel, Gros Islet on Wednesday February 13th, 2013.
