The Association of Accredited Small Business Consultants® (AASBC®) is the only global association specializing in training and certification of small business and SME consultants. We understand the impact that privately owned, small businesses and SMEs have on the worldwide economy. The core training of the AASBC® is the 400-page SEMP Approach: Simplified Examination to Maximize Profit™ training book and a 40 video SEMP Approach lecture series. Whether referred to as a small business, SME, micro business, or SMB, the objective of the AASBC remains the same, which is to train small business and SME consultants with the core competencies needed to improve operational efficiency and maximize profit for their clients.

The Association certifies members with the designation of Accredited Small Business Consultant® (ASBC®) for U.S. members and Accredited SME Consultant™ (ASMEC®) for international members who demonstrate a proficiency in small business and SME consulting through the successful passing of a certification exam.
