The Charles I. Ecker Business Training Center cooperates, collaborates, and partners with many public and private organizations and companies around Howard County to provide special courses, training, and services to county residents. For example, we have worked with the Maryland Department of Energy to convene special energy workshops and conventions on the wise use and conservation of energy in residential building and industrial applications.

We have also partnered with major national corporations to provide online courses for their employees at multiple remote sites around the country. We cooperate with the Maryland Association of Community Colleges via the Maryland Community Colleges' Business Training Network, a statewide database allowing users across Maryland to search for the training they need and the community colleges around the state that provide it.
