To get the most benefit from the training, we strongly encourage attendees to register for both days since the training covers sequential topics over two days. Specify Qty of 1 ticket per person for both days.
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.
