To become certified, each applicant goes through a detailed process that determines if the applicant is at least 51% owned, managed and controlled by US citizen(s) and operates an independent for-profit business. It is strongly recommended to attend the MBE Pre-Certification Workshop that happens the 4th Thursday of every month at 10:00 a.m. at the CVMSDC offices. At the MBE Pre-Certification Workshop, the certification application is reviewed in detail along with the process and the documentation. Applicants have found that by attending the Pre-Certification workshop, they get through the process quicker and submit completed packets.
