TRA Workshops

TRA can arrange to present a “workshop” to a customer (e.g. company) at a location it chooses.  TRA personnel will conduct the workshop which can vary from one to two days in length.  The workshop covers topics such as industry groups involved with rating/routing, TRA responsibilities, numbering, basic routing concepts, and from a products standpoint, and focuses primarily on the LERG product.  Specific topics can be fine-tuned between TRA and the company requesting a workshop.  Pricing varies due to various factors.

Arrangements can be made to extend Data Input (BIRRDS) Training (see below) to include a brief module on the format and data content of the LERG.
