The Office of Business Opportunity (OBO) values the health and well-being of our staff and everyone who walks through our doors. In an abundance of caution and given the rise in COVID-19 cases in the Greater Houston area, the OBO is suspending all in-person visits until further notice. Accordingly, we are offering the following assistance with the Certification process.

We encourage you to take advantage of the on-demand Pre-Certification Workshops, available on YouTube in English and Spanish, via the links below. However, if you would like to attend a Virtual Pre-Certification Workshop, please sign up via the form below.
