Reminder:  Last Chance to Register for Beginners’ Training

November 3, 2015

If you need complete beginner’s E-rate training, I ask that you register no later than November 5 so I can be sure to have enough materials/lunches available.  As a reminder, these are on-site trainings that cover each step of the E-rate process, including training in the new EPC portal.  Also, there are two additional trainings coming up in the next few weeks — Category 2 Training and Form 470 Training, and those registration links also are provided below.

Category 2 E-rate Training for PA Applicants Registration

Friday, November 6, 10:00 – noon


This webinar will provide PA schools and libraries with the information on what equipment/services are eligible for Category 2 funding, how C2 budgets are calculated, competitive bidding requirements and options, purchasing timelines, and additional requirements/restrictions.  If your school intends to apply for E-rate funding for Category 2 services or equipment in Funding Year 2016, I strongly encourage you to attend this session.  For those that cannot make it, the session will be archived for later viewing.   This session is for PA school and library applicants only (no vendors) and pre-registration is required.  On November 5, I’ll send the link to the webinar for all those who registered.  Live questions will be taken during this webinar.
