For-profit firms with their principal place of business in Massachusetts must take SDO's Instructor-led Pre-Certification Session BEFORE completing the online application. Out of state for-profit firms must take the online Pre-Certification Webcast and non-profit firms must take the online Pre-Certification Workshop designed for non-profit applicants. WBENC, GNEMSDC, VetBiz, NGLCC, and USBLN certified firms must visit the SDO website for further application instructions.
Note: Use the online application for SDO certifications (MBE, WBE, PBE and VBE) only.
