    Excellent review of Representation and Certifications section of SAM registration, an area often completed too casually by many contractors.

  2. Douglas Brent (verified owner)

    Excellent program. As a fairly new APEX Accelerator consultant, this program was solid reinforcement, especially the section related to DSBS.
