Myths about 8(a) Certifications:
1.) Your company cannot be 8(a) certified unless you have been in business for at least two years.
2.) You have to be an established mid-sized business before you will be able to apply for an 8(a) Certification.
3.) You can no longer apply for a certification once you have been rejected.

Myth about failed application attempts:
Don’t give up if your first application has been rejected. We can tell you whether or not you can be certified, despite what the SBA has said to you. All you need to do is to send us a copy of the letter from the SBA so that we will be able to assess your application.
