Further, the Center hosts specialized workshops and modules targeted to various audiences on specific issues and topics pertaining to the small business community. PCR's goal is to give the small business owner the tools needed to increase their bottom line: providing the strategies necessary to make money by becoming more productive and to save money by increasing efficiency.

Low cost business assistance training through the ESP (Entrepreneurial Strategic Planning) Program. Individual class length varies from three to six hours, which is enough time to give a comprehensive overview of the topic, while not tying up your schedule for several weeks. An affordable registration fee is charged for each class, and classes are open to all.

The Center's small class size and conference-like format fosters an atmosphere that is conducive to interaction between the participants and the instructor. Institute instructors are well versed in their area of expertise and in touch with the needs of today's small business owner. In fact, many of them are small business owners themselves, and bring their real-life experiences in running a business to their presentation.
