The OST Global Solutions Apprenticeship in Government Business Development is an in-depth year-long training in BD, capture, and proposals (250 hours), culminating in a U.S. Department of Labor Certificate. To learn more about it, visit our apprenticeship program page.

We have defined the Department of Labor occupational standards for Federal Government Business Development and built the first-in-the-nation, accredited program to train people in order to meet those standards.

OST’s Government Business Development Apprenticeship program is a comprehensive one-year training program that delivers the coursework and certifies the skills for Business Development Specialists through the Department of Labor. The apprenticeship combines 250 hours of job-related instruction to obtain national skills standards and on-the-job training provided by the apprentice employer.

Participants must pass skills tests at each segment of the program to progress further, so you can have confidence that your staff is learning.

Employers use this Government-certified program to prepare their future workforce with essential BD skills for government contracting. Our curriculum covers the entire Business Development lifecycle including opportunity identification, pipeline management, capture, and proposal development.

BD, Capture, and Proposal Course Curriculum for Apprenticeship

We have designed the program to ensure that Apprentices are able to deliver a real return on investment (ROI) by learning exactly how to perform specific BD-related tasks. Apprentices will complete one part of the program per month and will be able to apply this knowledge to contribute in a greater capacity to the BD efforts.

The program consists of 12 parts that Apprentices can access through our online Learning Management System (LMS), with live attendance available to academic classes.
