After completing the first edition with record enrollment, LACNIC's Training Center has announced the start of the second introductory course on IPV6 and that it will soon be launching an advanced course to provide continuity for this topic.
The second edition of the introductory course on IPV6 will begin on 8 June and will include four online modules that participants will be able complete in their own time, at their own pace, by 31st July.
Just as the first edition, the course will be taught through LACNIC Campus (campus.lacnic.net), a virtual space that aims at adding e-learning to LACNIC's existing training offerings.
The dates for the third and fourth editions of the introductory course on IPv6 have also been set (17 August and 19 October).
The initiative will provide extensive information on the new Internet protocol and has been especially designed for network administrators, software developers, network equipment providers, as well as IT students, teachers and professionals.
These courses are self-paced and conducted entirely online. Participants must simply go to the LACNIC Campus website, where they can access "content capsules" in video format, each lasting no longer than a few minutes. The introductory course on IPv6 is made up by four modules, each of which includes a series of videos explaining a topic as well as practical exercises and evaluations that each participant must complete. There is also an additional module with extra IPv6-related materials and resources.
Between them, the four modules address 22 of the most relevant IPv6-related topics. If you would like to participate, registration for the second edition will open on 8 June at http://campus.lacnic.net/course/index.php?categoryid=3z
After completing the course, LACNIC will provide a certificate of participation.
The LACNIC Training Center is already working on developing an advanced course on IPv6, which should be available in the coming months.
