FAQs

How do I register?

If you have decided that the SBMCP is right for you and would like to enroll, please visit the SBMCP homepage and follow the links to register online.

How do I pay?

An invoice will be sent via email to collect payment for the certificate program once the online registration has been submitted. 

When will I receive the information needed to complete the requirements?

You will receive an email with the links needed to access the required seminars after registration and payment have been received. Each online seminar will have instructions to access the supporting workbooks and seminar handouts. 

Online or In-Person?

The SBMCP required seminars are all available to view on demand. We encourage you to also take advantage of our live webinars or face to face sessions that meet the requirements. Attending live gives you the opportunity to ask specific questions to help you better plan for your business. 

I’ve already been to a few of the required seminars in person, will they still count?

Yes, any seminar you have attended in the past year will count towards the completion of your certification but all seminars must be completed in a one year span.

The SBMCP course participants can use some seminars they have previously attended as substitutes but please contact us for more information. 

Why can’t I count seminars that I attended more than one year ago?

We don’t count seminars you’ve attended more than a year ago because we want to be sure that the knowledge you have gained is the most up to date information.

What if I don’t finish in one year?

Situations are dealt with on a case by case basis. If you have been an active participant you may get an extension to complete your requirements. If you are an inactive participant you may have to re-enroll and pay another enrollment fee. 

How will I track my progress?

You are responsible for keeping track of and completing all of your requirements. However, if you would like to see a report of your seminar attendance or requirements that you have fulfilled, email sbdctraining@angelo.edu

I want to complete the program soon but some seminars I need are not being offered this quarter. Are there any options for me?

You must meet with the program coordinator to discuss completing an alternate graduation plan. Alternatives are primarily made up of additional online training modules or taking another set of seminars that will provide similar information. We discourage this course of action if at all possible.

I have more questions!

If you need more information regarding the SBMCP please contact the Training Coordinator at 325-942-2098 or email sbdctraining@angelo.edu
