    NA3 objectives in EGEE-III

    Activity objectives

    – Expand and refine the training material and courses, to provide training resources for an ever-widening range of Grid applications.

    – Train a wide variety of users, within EGEE consortium & outside users of other middleware.

    – Develop mechanisms for passing on knowledge to end-users of EGEE related projects.

    – Expand online learning services, meeting the needs of an expanded project and larger user-base.

    – Support the provision of t-Infrastructure on the GILDA testbed by developing/maintaining training resources to cover diverse range of application scenarios.

    Priorities in 2nd year

    • Scalability and sustainability

    – Autonomous national training groups established at every NGI

    – Integration of t-Infrastructure into production infrastructure

    – Continuation of training services in EGI is ensured

    Issues to resolve in EGI

    • Not all the NGIs have accredited trainers

    – Are these countries self-sufficient in term of training?

    • Keeping trainer registry up to date

    – Not all the accredited trainers are in the people registry

    – How and when to modify/remove a trainer registration?

    • Keeping the critical number of sites in the training VO
