Erion is pleased to announce that we are running our world-leading Implementing and Securing IPv6 (5-day) training course as a public event in Edinburgh UK in April 2015. This is the first time that we have run this course as a public scheduled course in the UK. Previously this course has proved to be very popular as a closed on-site course.

Developed over 16 years, this course covers all aspects of IPv6 deployment and security in comprehensive detail. It is ideal for all technical staff wishing to learn more about IPv6. This 5-day course covers all the topics in our popular Implementing IPv6 (4-day) and Securing IPv6 (3-day) course. This is an intensive course ideal for those who do not have the time to attend both the 4-day and 3-day courses.

This course includes extensive practical hands-on IPv6 exercises. The default platform for this course is Linux but we can arrange for the hands-on exercises to be carried out on other platforms including Cisco IOS.

All Erion’s IPv6 training courses are Gold certified by the IPv6 Forum. Our IPv6 security courses are also IPv6 Security certified from the IPv6 Forum.

Erion have just released a new IPv6 course for Internet Service Providers (ISPs). This course is designed to help ISPs prepare their Helpdesk staff to support IPv6.

Many ISPs have already deployed or are in the process of deploying, IPv6. A key aspect of any deployment is ensuring that all staff have the necessary IPv6 skills. In an ISP providing residential broadband service it is crucial that front line Helpdesk staff have an understanding of IPv6 and of basic IPv6 troubleshooting techniques.

This short course provides the basic knowledge, techniques and understanding required by ISP Helpdesk staff. This course is aligned with RIPE’s current best practice (IPv6 Troubleshooting for Residential ISP Helpdesks) and their recommended IPv6 test tools for residential ISPs.

The practical aspects of this course are applicable to all operating systems usually found in residential environments.

This course is designed to be run on-site as a closed course for a specific ISP. As such it can be tailored to reflect a specific IPv6 deployment and Helpdesk practice. It can also be modified to reflect the skill set of existing Helpdesk staff.

The course description can be found here. Please contact us if you require any further information.

Erion was a case study at the EU’s workshop on IPv6 training in Ghent, Belgium earlier this week. At the event, Erion’s David Holder presented the opening talk.

In his presentation, David set out to the lessons learned by Erion in over 12 years of providing IPv6 training. He described how Erion set about becoming the world’s leading IPv6 training company with the world’s most comprehensive set of IPv6 training courses and how they came to achieve this.

His presentation slides can be found here, Erion Case Study of World-Leading IPv6 Training Company at EU IPv6 Curricula Day Presentation. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Erion’s David Holder will be presenting at the EU’s Workshop on “Skills for IPv6″ in Ghent Belgium on the 13th December 2010.

He is pleased to be invited to speak and support the EU’s efforts to encourage the adoption of IPv6 in the community. A key part of the adoption of IPv6 is the need for training.

Erion has been providing IPv6 training for over twelve years. Over that time we have created the world’s most comprehensive portfolio of IPv6 training courses. Our courses cover all aspects of IPv6 on all major platforms and operating systems, and are aimed at a wide range of different audiences, from advanced technical staff through to senior management. In over a decade, Erion has gained a wealth of experience in training all types of organisations on every aspect of IPv6. Our customers include many of the world’s leading technology and none technology companies. Well known examples include (in no particular order), The International Telecommunications Union (ITU), Cisco, Ericsson, Arbor Networks, Orange, Research in Motion, Sony, EMC, Atos Origin, BAA, BBC and 3Com.

In addition to Erion’s published standard IPv6 courses, we also provide what we call “Modular IPv6 training”. In our IPv6 modular courses, we put together an IPv6 training programme for a client using modules from a number of our standard courses. This allows us to create tailored IPv6 courses for clients without the usual overheads of creating bespoke training.

Further details on Erion’s IPv6 training services can be found at our IPv6 training web-site. Please contact us for further information.
