Q8.  Will there be other options available for staff who want a laptop  – but do not fit into this category?
A5.   Although this first wave is strictly for those who already have taken the course and have an HP6455b laptop, we are working on the following options…

a.  A 15 hour course where you can replace or get a new laptop and receive PD/college credit

b. a course for those who have a laptop that is not the HP6455b, but they still want to trade it in for a new laptop

c.  salaried staff who do not have a laptop, but would like one and are looking for shorter/condensed class.
