NWBDC Trains Participants at UW-Extension Broadband Boot Camp

For the second time in 2013 Don Sidlowski, founder of NWBDC, served as a “drill instructor” trainer at the two-day Broadband Boot Camp put on by the UW-Extension (UWEX) Center for Community Technology Solutions in Wausau on November 13-14. The boot camp was aimed at the forty UWEX Community Natural Resources & Economic Development (CNRED) and Family Practice agents along with economic development directors invited from a dozen rural northern Wisconsin counties. The agents participants were exposed to two intense days worth of high technology content on the technology of broadband, its application in the home and the workplace, and strategies for assisting the implementation in their county. Don’s training segments focused on success stories at the community level, featuring what had been done in the Town of Three Lakes in Oneida County as well as at the County level itself.
