NSRC Workshop Planning Pages

A core part of what the Network Startup Resource Center does centers around technical training and capacity building. The NSRC emphasizes best current practices in all aspects of training and believes that hands-on, practical experience is invaluable. Often it can be difficult to narrow down the scope of a training when planning. Below we list a sample of the types of training we provide and time required. This page is provided to help our partners to properly plan for upcoming on-site network training workshops and tutorials.
