TVPPA understands that working remotely presents a wide array of challenges. That’s why we are sharing a free “Remote Boot Camp” offered by Tennessee’s Roane State Community College with our members. The four-week boot camp, designed to help participants navigate their virtual work environment, will be offered three times this fall. The course is grant funded, so enrollment is free for the first 150 registrants regardless of the state in which they are located.
