Local companies graduate from defense contractor academy

From a press-release, The North Carolina Military Business Center (NCMBC) announces the graduation of 41 North Carolina businesses from the 2012 Spring Defense Contractor Academy (DCA), held at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) in Charlotte. The DCA offered advanced instruction and a certificate of completion to existing, small business defense contractors to provide the tools the need to grow the defense contracting portion of their business portfolio. Graduating businesses completed a series of nine classes over a nine-week period, beginning on January 19, 2012 and ending March 15, 2012.

“The Defense Contractor Academy provides the advanced skills businesses need in federal business development, competitive processes and federal contracting procedures to grow in the federal marketplace – and to grow jobs in North Carolina,” said Scott Dorney, Executive Director of the NCMBC.

Mills Manufacturing Corporation of Asheville was among the companies participating.
