PITA work programs
With the assistance of relevant key personnel and managers from member organisations, and at their request, PITA will organise capacity building programs, and industry workshops, training at any time of the year to help members address their capacity gaps, to addressing specific issues, incidents or emergency, or to implement a required transformation, to facilitate the needed competency, skillsets and knowledge base at different levels of the organisation. Such programs complement PITA annual work programs.
Held twice a year at June/July and November/December, PITA with the PacNOG Coordinating Partners1 organise and hold a PacNOG Educational conference and hands-on training for the Internet Networking engineers from Pacific Island countries. These programs are included in the annual work plans.
