The purpose of Regional School is to provide clerks with convenient, accessible educational opportunities on a regional basis during the year. The Regional Schools offer identical one day training programs in each of the four regions and are usually held on Fridays, if possible, any time from late March through April. The schools afford all clerks in North Carolina the opportunity to learn ways to improve their effectiveness in carrying out their duties and responsibilities, while also sharing knowledge and networking with other clerks. They are provided in four locations to help keep your travel time and costs down.
