ARA Winter Webinar Series offers affordable education opportunities

Strengthen your business by educating yourself and your staff members on issues important to rental businesses with the ARA Winter Webinar Series. These web events, focused on improving specific areas of your business, provide quality education without the cost of travel.

“There has been such demand for web-based educational opportunities from our membership base that building an annual webinar program made sense,” says Carla Brozick, ARA’s senior director of education and training. “Once again, we have a slate of relevant topics being presented by experts in their field.”

Last year, hundreds of members took advantage of the opportunity to train staff members. Similar training sessions can take employees off site and cost more than $100. ARA makes these 90-minute web events available at an ARA member cost of $35 per computer connection and $105 for nonmembers. ARA Insurance insured members also save $10 off the member price.
