USDA Training Offerings

Who: Suggested for project teams providing technical assistance

What: The event will focus on American Iron & Steel (AIS) for the first part of each day and the electronic Preliminary Engineering Report (ePER) for the second part of each day. Both topics will include sessions highlighting Basics, Best Practices, Trends/Issues, Discussion, Q&As of each topic.

Why: Project teams respond to communities in a range of ways. This training bolsters your knowledge on topics that are commonly found in the scopes of work of many CECorps projects.

  • Does your scope include assessing solution viability and potentially drafting budgets for implementation?
  • Do you know if you need to comply with AIS?
  • Will your community need a PER to secure grant funding or a loan?

If your answer is “yes” to any of these questions, this training is for you!!
