The Network Startup Resource Center and our colleagues have helped organize, develop curriculum materials, and teach in many international network training workshops for network engineers and sysadmins around the world. Starting in 1990, NSRC founder, Randy Bush, taught hands-on, lab-based technical programs about building and maintaining networks in southern Africa, and in Peru at the Red Científica Peruana (RCP) the following year. The earliest series of Internet workshops oriented to training scientists and engineers in developing countries was hosted by the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy, starting in 1991. Collaboration with Alvise Nobile and ICTP led to working with Ermanno Pietrosemoli and the initial EsLaRed workshops for Latin American academics in 1992 and 1993.

This work inspired, in part, the methodology developed for the Internet Society's (ISOC) INET/Network Training Workshop series (1993-2000), in which the NSRC actively participated. The NSRC's collaboration with ISOC since the early 1990s to transfer network technology through the INET educational programs established one of the Internet's principal training efforts, and contributed significantly to the creation of many of the national and regional networks around the world. As an extension of those relationships, the NSRC and ISOC work together to help initiate more educational programs in different world regions in cooperation with network operator groups (NOGs) and Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). These include the African Network Operators Group (AfNOG), the Pacific Network Operators Group (PacNOG), the South Asian Network Operators Group (SANOG), and the Workshop for Latin America and the Caribbean (WALC), among others. NSRC also participates in several workshop programs each year with the Internet Education and Research Laboratory at the Asian Institute of Technology in Thailand, which provides technical training for Asian network operators.

Collaboration with ISOC

As a complementary activity, the NSRC works with ISOC to build and maintain a web-based repository to archive and share multilingual training materials for educational workshops. Teaching presentations and lab exercises from most of the aforementioned technology workshops with regional organizations are archived on the Workshop Resource Centre at http://ws.edu.isoc.org/.

Beyond providing curriculum materials and lab exercises for a wide range of topics and technologies, the site is designed to function as an interactive meeting point for bringing together workshop organizers and instructors, based on the needs of the particular event. It provides access to a directory of trainers and lists their areas of expertise, and encourages interaction among members of the training and education community.
