Category 2 Bidding Webinars Scheduled Next Week

December 4, 2019

~ Separate trainings for Public Schools & Non-Public Schools/Libraries ~
~ Register Now ~

In addition to the “Category 2 Changes Webinar” to explain the FCC’s new C2 Order being held next Tuesday, I have scheduled two additional webinars to provide PA public schools, nonpublic schools and libraries with refresher training on Category 2 eligibility and competitive bidding.  Category 2 is the E-rate funding mechanism that provides discounts for networking equipment and infrastructure within a school or library building.  Both bidding webinars will cover 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.
