All RIPE NCC training courses are conducted in English. We ask that everyone arrives at the course location at 09:00 for coffee. The course starts at 09:30 and finishes at 17:30.


To give as many LIRs as possible the chance to attend the RIPE NCC training courses, we can only accept two attendees per LIR. If more than two attendees from an LIR apply, they will be placed on a waiting list. If there are places available on the course, they will be given to those people on the waiting list on a first come, first served basis.


The cost of this course is covered by each LIR's membership fee. The course includes lunch and training materials. Travel expenses and accommodation costs during the training course are not included and must be covered by the attendee.
