Learning and Development

For over two decades, we at the RIPE NCC have offered trainings on a range of technical topics across our service region of 76 countries. Our trainers are trusted by our 20,000 plus members because we offer:

  • Knowledge and skills based on best practices
  • Over 20 years of experience in technical capacity building
  • Vendor-neutral, independent certification
  • The authority on the technical infrastructure of the Internet

About the RIPE NCC

We're an independent, not-for-profit membership organisation that supports the infrastructure of the Internet through technical coordination in our service region. Our most prominent activity is to act as the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) providing global Internet resources and related services (IPv4, IPv6 and AS Number resources) to members in our service region.

Our membership consists mainly of Internet service providers (ISPs), telecommunication organisations and large corporations located in Europe, the Middle East and parts of Central Asia.

We also provide services for the benefit of the Internet community at large.
