Community Trainers

In an effort to deliver localized training and build the skills of the APNIC community, the APNIC Academy has created the Community Trainer Program.

Community Trainers are Internet operations subject matter experts who play an important role in:

  • Providing localized and customized training on operational issues facing their communities.
  • Mentoring their fellow Internet engineers in their local economy or subregion, and sharing their real-world experiences.

Community Trainers are ‘economy champion’ engineers with significant Internet operational skills and experience who can tailor face-to-face training sessions to the audience – scaling it where necessary – validate existing or new content, and propose, develop and deliver relevant content.

Voluntary and Retained Community Trainers

APNIC engages Community Trainers on either voluntary or retained agreements, with engagements varying accordingly.

Retained Community Trainers

Retained Community Trainers (RCTs) are engaged for a minimum of 5 working days per month on a retained basis. This provides RCTs with the flexibility to continue with other commitments.

Voluntary Community Trainers

The frequency of Voluntary Community Trainers’ (VCTs) engagements may be monthly to quarterly or less, and acceptance of invitations is at the discretion of VCTs.
