Since 2004, the Internet Society has been holding technical training workshops for country code top level domain (ccTLD) operators in developing regions. The workshops, which are conducted as hands-on clinics in a computer lab environment, aim to provide the knowledge and skills ccTLD operators need to build up and maintain high quality infrastructure and services.
The Internet Society organises the ccTLD workshop series in partnership with the Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC).
ccTLD Policy and Management Tutorials
In 2006, the Internet Society began working in partnership with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to deliver a series of ccTLD educational events focused on higher-level ccTLD policy and management topics, including best practices. The ccTLD tutorials are interactive seminars, with international experts and regional operators presenting on and discussing current ccTLD issues. The ccTLD tutorials are appropriate as a "stand alone" event for more technically advanced regions, or as supplemental information for regions still in need of hands-on technical training.
Both the ccTLD Registry Workshop series and the ccTLD Policy and Management Tutorials are made possible by contributions from Internet Society Members and the Public Interest Registry (PIR).
