Host a Bootstrap Event

What is a Bootstrap Event

The Train the Trainer (TTT) programme begins with a ‘Bootstrap event’ targeted at IT professionals and trainers from the Eurasia, Central Asia and Middle East regions. We hold events in one of these countries to prepare our participants to become RIPE NCC certified trainers. We organise these events together with local governments or organisations.

The duration of a bootstrap event is 5 working days.  Participants will need to travel to the location one day in advance and can leave the day after the end of the event. The daily schedule is from 9:30 to 17:30, including two coffee breaks and lunch.
