PA E-rate Trainings Scheduled – Register Now!
October 21, 2015
Three additional E-rate workshops (webinars) have been scheduled for PA schools and libraries and I hope that you will plan to attend any of them that are relevant to your specific needs. The workshops are, of course, free, but registration is required. It is my intention to have the archived presentation available on the www.e-ratepa.org website soon after the event. Also, if you are in need of beginners E-rate training, I’ve also included links to those in-person workshops being held in November. See you there!
