Training Programs


At Jean Kristensen Associates, LLC, we believe that the key to success is knowledge.

We all want to do business with large corporations and government agencies, as it’s a fantastic way to grow a business! But without a clear understanding of the procurement process, marketing tools, and the technical skills necessary to gain access to larger contracts, minority and women-owned businesses can struggle to get ahead. In addition, businesses of all sizes must remain on the cutting edge by making a continual investment in management, leadership, and personal development.

I work with small, minority, veteran, and woman-owned businesses to give them the tools and resources they need to increase revenues through government contracting, supplier diversity programs, certification, and innovative business strategies. Through these training programs, you will be able to bring your business to the next level!
