Mobile Training Lab

Through the Klickitat-Skamania Local Technology Planning Team, the Gorge Broadband Consortium has developed a Mobile Training Lab. This resources consists of six laptops that can be used for broadband training in our region. The Mobile Lab will allow training sessions to occur in communities or at faciltiies where there is a wireless internet connection, but no computer lab. This capability allows training sessions to be easily accessible for busineseses and residents who are looking to better take advantage of broadband to support increased opportunity and connection! This project was rfunded by the Washington Department of Commerce's Local Technology Planning Team Grant Program. If you are interested in using the lab, give MCEDD a call at 541-296-2266 or email
