The APNIC Training team had a busy year in 2015, delivering 77 courses to 2,194 people across 23 economies in the Asia Pacific.
Highlights for the year included training the whole of Niue’s IT workforce, providing training in Timor-Leste for the first time; and delivering training at 10 NOG events (bdNOG x 2, BTNOG, IDNOG, MyNOG, PacNOG x 2, SANOG x 2), including Myanmar’s inaugural NOG event.
The team also delivered 117 eLearning classes to 726 attendees. The recordings of these eLearning classes are uploaded to APNIC Training’s YouTube channel and were viewed 138,302 times in 2015.
Major updates were also made to the following courses:
- RPKI Tutorial and Router Configuration Demo, with more hands on capability on the lab
- IPv4/IPv6 BGP Routing workshop
- Network Security
There was also some notable team changes with Nurul Islam Roman promoted to Training Manager, and two new trainers joining the team: Fakrul Alam and Jessica Wei. Jessica brings the additional language of Mandarin to the training team, as well as Huawei training expertise, while Fakrul brings skills in Routing and Switching, Network Architecture, Network Security and Management, and Network Forensics.
Finally, a special thank you to our 2015 hosts for their support and assistance, both financially and logistically. The successful delivery of the workshops would not have been possible without the support of the following organizations:
