Dear Colleague:

We are pleased to announce an instructor-led, online training session for software developers that will provide operational updates on Federal Student Aid systems, including the Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System and the Central Processing System (CPS). We will also discuss reporting gainful employment (GE) data to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) and updates to the EDExpress for Windows software. This training is intended for software developers that design software to support Title IV federal student aid processing.

We will present this information on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 from 1:30 to 5:00 P.M. (ET).

Once registered, we will send an e-mail confirmation to the trainee. The trainee should retain this confirmation, as it contains important information, including linking and log in information for the Web site, system test links, and cancellation information. If unable to attend, we request that the trainee cancel his or her registration so that individuals who wish to attend may do so.

PowerPoint slides will be available for each trainee to download after he or she signs in to the webinar. During the webinar, trainees will be able to ask questions electronically using their computers.

We look forward to your participation in this instructor-led, online training opportunity. If you have questions about this training opportunity, please contact Michelle Saigh at michelle.saigh@ed.gov.

Sincerely,
