Using FPDS Data for Market Research
This course is NOT simply an introduction to the Federal market data found in the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS).
It's not about comprehensive, 101-style deep dives into FPDS’s core capabilities, or about showing off cheesy, impractical "hacks."
It's about featuring powerful and effective tools and techniques used by business development professionals and sharing them through crystal clear demos and unique, real-world case studies.
Each topic is designed to build on previous topics to help you learn these tools and techniques in quick, bite-sized lessons. Your real-life coach holds you accountable to completing the course, checks your work, and coaches you through achieving YOUR goals for the course.
It's time to start working smarter, not harder. If you're looking to maximize efficiency, supercharge productivity, and become an FPDS POWER USER, this is the course for you.
