IPv6 Training (and Courseware) Available At RIPE NCC

Interested in learning more about IPv6?  In Europe, RIPE NCC, the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) for the region offers an IPv6 training course for staff of Local Internet Registries – and perhaps more relevantly, they make their course materials and exercises available to all for free.

You can see the outline for the RIPE NCC IPv6 training class at:


If you are a member of the RIPE NCC, you can attend any of their upcoming courses listed here:


If you are NOT a member of the RIPE NCC, they very nicely do make their IPv6 training courseware available to all for free at:


The slides they use are there and are updated periodically.  They also provide a number of exercise worksheets that can be used in training classes as well as a very handy IPv6 Subnetting Card and a very useful guide on “Preparing an IPv6 Addressing Plan.

Additionally, RIPE NCC provides an e-learning page with a few video case studies relating to IPv6 as well as a list of other IPv6-related resources.
