Helping Entrepreneurs Reach Complete Success (HERCS)

Military Family Services is pleased to support the Trenton Military Family Resource Centre in their national online training program, Helping Entrepreneurs Reach Complete Success (HERCS).

Open to the military community, this online training program seeks to empower its participants to create businesses of all types, especially “portable” businesses which can be easily relocated due to postings. Since the HERCS program has gone national, over 200 military family members have completed this virtual training.

Why start over if you have a business that can move when you do? 

The free online HERCS course is broken up into three two-hour sessions. You can sign up and participate from the comfort of your own home.
