During the afternoon work session (1‐4 pm), you will be able to grow accustomed to using the Metadata Generator and depositing your agency’s documents while a trainer is present to answer your questions. Attendance at the afternoon session is optional. You need only stay until you feel comfortable using the various features of the Metadata Generator.
Please register so that your personal EDI account is ready for you when you attend training.
