(June 19, 2012) -- International Trade Center Director Cliff Paredes and Monica Alcoz, senior international business consultant, have just finished conducting in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, the second training module on how to successfully run a small business development center (SBDC).

The June 14-15 module focused on developing SBDC training programs. Training is important to centers as both promotional tools and avenues to assist a greater audience of small-business owners than business consulting services alone. More than 130 people attended the training including Carlos Avila Molina, rector, and Mario Lanza, vice rector of Universidad Jose Cecilio del Valle in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, where the event was hosted, as well as high-ranking officials in the Honduran government.

"The attendees were very enthusiastic about the presentations," said Paredes. "Training is core to an SBDC's function, and good training is able to make lasting connections in the community."

This event was organized by the International Trade Center in partnership with the Universidad Jose Cecilio del Valle and the Secretariat of Industry and Commerce of Honduras.
