E-Rate Webinars

UETN is conducting three two-hour E-rate training webinars to inform and help Utah E-rate applicants prepare for the program’s Funding Year 2018 application cycle. These webinars will be recorded and posted on UETN’s website. These interactive webinars will take place on Wednesday afternoons beginning November 1st, 2017 and then each of the following two Wednesdays at 1:00 PM Mountain Time. The focus of each webinar can expand as needed to accommodate attendees’ questions but to provide some idea of where each session will begin, they are described below. We ask that all attendees login to these webinars using their actual names, titles, and/or the organization they represent.
