When I signed up for training I indicated I could bring a laptop. This would not be my main computer, so should I bring it? What would be the benefit if it is not the computer I will set up my outlook account on?
If you are signed up for an outlying training session, bringing a laptop can create an extra slot for someone else to attend the class (for example, if no one brings a laptop, then the class can accomodate 15 people total; if 5 people can bring their own laptops, the class can accomodate up to 20 people).
If you are attending a Central Area class, which will be conducted in Scheman, there is not additional space to add users to the class even if someone is able to bring a laptop, so for these classes (the ones conducted at Scheman) there's no advantage to bringing a laptop to class.
