Mr. Ken Carkhuff
“Hear ye, hear ye!” DAU deployed SBP 1010 - Introduction to Small Business Programs, Part A, on March 9th. This is the first new SBP course deployment in several years and is replacing SBP 101. The online course is part of the SBP Credential (CSBP 001) and the new prerequisite for SBP 102V, Introduction to Small Business Programs, Part B. Students that are enrolled in CSBP 001 that have completed SBP 101 do not have to complete SBP 1010. Also, any student that was currently enrolled in SBP 101 before it was retired must complete the course NLT May 8th or they will have to complete SBP 1010.

The introductory course consists of five modules and a final exam. The modules include:
  • Strategic role of the Small Business workforce
  • Strategic role of the Small Business Professional (SBP)
  • Using small business programs
  • Using small business systems
  • Conducting market research


More specifically, the course covers the small business vision, goals, culture, and values from the view of the Director, DoD Office of Small Business Programs, Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition & Sustainment OUSD(A&S), and the Secretary of Defense and the 2023 DoD Small Business Strategy. The course reviews small business success stories highlighting some contributions small businesses have made to the success of DoD. The course also provides key baseline business processes, tools, legislation/policies, and procedures, including funded programs and socioeconomic programs. Finally, the course discusses the expectations of SBPs.

The course is almost a complete revision of the predecessor course and is designed for new SBPs, SBPs pursuing the SBP credential, and all new acquisition professionals who participate in matters relating to DoD Small Business Programs. The course is also open to Industry.
