Group Edge-U-Cation

The Group Edge-U-Cation Program offers specific Edge related topics like those offered through the Edge Project Mentoring program but in a group setting rather than on an individual basis.

  • A 2 hour webinar with a ½ hour question and answer period per month
  • A ½ hour personal review session per month
  • A written summary of the monthly topic agenda
  • Full Edge Pulse
  • BONUS: Participation in a semiannual, practical, hands-on workshop in Edge Headquarters in Shelton CT.

The Group Edge-u-cation Program Subscription Price is $345 per month/store for a minimum of 3 months.
