ISC and NaMeX Offer DNS Training in Europe

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/23/09 -- Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) and NaMeX today announced a partnership establishing NaMeX's Rome location as the primary European site for ISC's BIND and DHCP training courses. The first series of classes begins October 12th.

In 2004, ISC began offering customer support for the ubiquitous open source software BIND, and shortly thereafter added support for ISC DHCP. Customers were quick to let ISC know that training classes designed to assist with set-up and ongoing operation of the nameservers and DHCP servers would complement software support. In response to demand, in September of 2006, we offered our first training, Introduction to BIND and Advanced BIND. These classes were created with a combination of lecture, labs and hands-on instruction to allow students to learn and practice BIND administration in a realistic setting.

"We are pleased to be partnering with ISC to bring their courses to Europe on a regular basis," stated Maurizio Goretti, CEO of NaMeX. "NaMeX is a neutral, non-profit, member based Internet Exchange point located in Rome, and is a crucial node in the overall Internet infrastructure of Italy. It's our pleasure to be able to offer our members the opportunity to attend these courses and to welcome people from across Europe into our training facilities, set in the heart of our enchanting city."

Class sizes are kept small to ensure adequate time can be spent on each student's questions regarding their unique situations. ISC's training offerings will continue to increase in the range of topics and frequency. Classes on specialized concerns such as DNSSEC Implementation and Deployment have been added to ISC's offerings to address Internet trends and customer requests. Onsite training courses are also available with either standard topics or custom ones. For a complete listing of our training offerings visit URL https://www.isc.org/services/training.

"ISC's goal is to offer our classes where customers need them. As the developers and maintainers of BIND and ISC DHCP, ISC is in a unique position to be responsive to the changing needs and uses of the software by our customers. Securing this partnership is another measure of our responsiveness and a step towards offering our trainings across the globe," stated Sue Graves, Professional Services Manager at ISC.
