> > these classes (they usually charge $500 for the laptops, but are so
> > excited about this project, they are not charging for them). They have
> > ten laptops, and we thought because there are so many clerks we could
> > put two clerks per laptop, and have classroom size of 20. That would
> > mean 10-11 sessions to get all clerks trained. They would like to do as

> > The class will cost about $40 per person. Eric is checking on possible

> > you have money in your budgets to cover this class? Excel classes
> > charge $95. This is a good price. For those of you who have scheduled
> > Excel 1 classes, they suggest you keep the class to learn the basics if
> > you want. The classes will run from 10 am to 4 pm. Five hours should
> > be sufficient to get through what we need to know.
> > We would need to know who wants training and if you could go to South
> > Burlington or Montpelier. We also need to know those who can't come the
> > distance so we can make other arrangements. By starting at 10, that
> > gives you time to travel without starting out really early.
> > If you have questions on the checklist other than printing and labels,
> > let me know as soon as possible so that we can incorporate it into the
> > procedures manual.
> > If anyone knows of any clerks not on Muninet or VMCTA, please let me
> > know so that we can get in touch with them.
> > I will keep you posted as I find out more about it.
