HCC's Business Training Center is Howard County's local Maryland WorkSmart Center. 

The Maryland Department of Commerce and the Maryland Association of Community Colleges established the Maryland WorkSmart Program to provide businesses, agencies, and nonprofit organizations statewide with a wide variety of customized, relevant workforce training solutions. Maryland WorkSmart Program customized training solutions are available in Howard County through Howard Community College's Business Training Center (BTC).
