Get E-rate Great: Abingdon

January 30, 2017 8:30 am

Event Details

The training is intended for school division staff that are responsible for E–rate. Even if you have a consultant do your application, this is a great opportunity to learn more about the program and network with your colleagues about E–rate. The training is also for service providers that assist schools with Category 1 or Category 2 service or equipment and want to learn more about or keep current with the E-rate program. Participants could include Chief Technology Officers, Technology Directors/Coordinators, network staff, Chief Financial Officers, school administrative support staff, and service provider staff. There is not a limit on how many staff can attend the training from each school division or service provider entity. Spaces will be provided for 50 participants.

The 8:30 to 12 pm time slot on January 30 is reserved for E–rate Beginners or anyone who wants a refresher or introduction. Anyone can attend the Beginner session. All others including participants with varying levels of expertise can attend the lunch and afternoon sessions on January 30 and the full day sessions on January 31. Choose both tickets if you plan to attend the Beginner session. Choose only the E-rate for All ticket if you plan on attending the January 30, 1-4 pm session, and the January 31 all day sessions.
