Trainings & Outreach

Webinars

Join USAC for our live training webinars provided throughout the year for Schools and Libraries (E-rate) Program participants. We will share program updates and essential guidance to help participants learn about and successfully navigate the program.

During each webinar, the audience will have the opportunity to take part in a live question and answer session with members of the E-rate Program team where we will answer questions on the webinar topic.

Schedule

During the FY2019 application filing window, USAC will conduct a series of office hour webinars which will focus on specific E-rate topics covered in our online E-rate Program Training Series. The webinar schedule includes the date and time, the recommended audience, E-rate experience level and the specific training module(s) that attendees should review in advance of the webinar. Note that we may hold more than one webinar on the same day.

Select a webinar below to register. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about the event. You can add a calendar reminder from the registration confirmation page or event confirmation email by clicking "Add to Calendar."

If you are interested in attending an office hour webinar, register for the webinar and watch the training module(s) listed to prepare your questions.
