Register Now for Comprehensive Beginner’s E-rate Training in PA!

September 12, 2016

For those of you who are new to E-rate or want a refresher, the Pennsylvania Department of Education is again sponsoring three in-person E-rate trainings being held in various regions of the state.  This year’s workshops will again be full-day and be held in late October and early November.   This year’s workshop contents have been revamped to provide comprehensive, step-by-step training on how to apply for E-rate (both Category 1 and Category 2) and demonstrate how to navigate and submit forms in the new USAC EPC Portal.

Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m., with the workshop running from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.  Each training is identical and lunch will be provided.  Seating is limited to 2 attendees from each school or library (unless you contact me in advance), and you must register to attend (see below).  The workshops are free, but a $50 cancellation fee will apply for cancellations made with less than 48 hours’ notice.

Please note:  There will be separate E-rate webinar trainings announced soon for returning E-rate applicants as well as other issue-specific webinars.
