E-rate for Beginners & Category 2 Webinars Scheduled

 October 30, 2018

~ Register Now ~

Next week there will be three separate webinars held to provide additional E-rate training for PA schools and libraries (no vendors).  The first webinar will be “E-rate for Beginners” – a condensed training session for those applicants new to the program who could not attend one of the three, full-day training sessions held this fall.   The next two webinars will be devoted to Category 2 – the E-rate funding mechanism that provides discounts for networking equipment and infrastructure within a school or library building.  The morning C2 webinar will be for nonpublic schools and libraries, and the afternoon C2 webinar will be for public schools only.  The C2 webinars will cover the same general topics, but will have different content depending on the entity type as Pennsylvania public schools have much different requirements/options than nonpublic schools and libraries.   Registration is required to participate.
