Joining Instructions for each of our courses are usually sent out by e-mail to invited participants one weeks prior to the course to which they relate. However, this page lists some generic useful information for all courses.
Accommodation and refreshments
Our courses are non-residential so please make your own arrangements for the duration of the workshop. During the workshops, light refreshments will be served free of charge. It is however up to attendees to make other arrangements for their meals before and after the event.
Courses generally run from 8.30 to 17.30 each day but often we stay till 18:00 or more! During the day, there are two short breaks and one long break for lunch and prayers in muslim countries.

Preparing for the workshop
Once invited for the workshop, participants should head to our website, download and review the relavant training materials. Participants to technical workshops are also required to come along with their own laptops which must have the following utilities installed:
- Virtualbox - a virtualisation software available freely from http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
- A telnet and/or SSH client to use to log into remote equipment. If your operating system does not have these installed, you can download and install the following free ones:
- Putty - http://www.putty.org/
- Terraterm - http://en.sourceforge.jp/projects/ttssh2/releases/
- The AFRINIC whois client freely available from ftp://ftp.afrinic.net/pub/pub/db/whois3_afr.tar.gz. Please note that although most Linux/unix operation systems have a whois client, these do not support most of the flags used by the AfriNIC whois server.
