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

September 6, 2017

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 early-mid October.   This year’s workshop will provide 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 register as soon as possible so we know how many training materials and lunches to order.

If you register for beginner’s training, please be sure that you are set up as a User in your school or library’s EPC account and have successfully logged in prior to training.

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