About these Courses

Several free online courses are offered by the SBA to help prospective and existing entrepreneurs understand the basics about managing a business. These self-paced courses are easy to use and understand. They will take about 30 minutes to complete. You can, however, exit a course at any time. Because most of the courses offer audio explanations, it is recommended that your computer speakers be turned on.

Before entering a course, you will be prompted to complete an online registration form. The registration process is simple, asks only a couple of questions, and will take less than a minute to complete.
