Training and TRMCs

TRMC Master Classes

TRMC BrochureTRMC is a series of Master Classes addressing the training requirements of professionals in the communications sector in general. The aim of the courses is to inform delegates on the key areas of regulation in the sector, advise on best-practice and share with delegates InterConnect's experience in these areas which has been built up over the last 30 years.

The 2015 brochure (right) with all the class plans is available and can be downloaded. Individual course brochures are also available from each course page.

In addition to the two new Internet courses outlined below, we have also taken the decision this year to merge the Access and Interconnection course with the NGN course. The new combined course, the Master Class in Interconnection and Next Generation Networks and Access, will run in November 2015.

New Courses for 2015!!

Internet Security and Privacy and Internet Addressing, Naming and Routing
It has always been our intent to expand to the number of courses we provided on Internet related topics and, following on from the success of the Internet Governance and Policy course launched last year, we are pleased to announce two new courses, Internet Security and Privacy and Internet Addressing, Naming and Routing, which will run in June 2015. Brief course outlines are provided below and more details will follow in the coming weeks.

Dates for the 2015 TRMCs

The full 2015 schedule is outlined below.

Internet Governance and Policy
25 - 29 May 2015

NEW Master Class in Internet Security and Privacy 9 - 12 June 2015 NEW
The Master Class in Internet Security and Privacy will help participants understand crucial technical, legal, and public policy issues related to both Internet Security and Privacy. This Master Class brings the technical, legal and public policy aspects of security and privacy into sharp focus. Security and privacy are treated as a coherent whole – rather than being addressed as separate topics.

NEW Master Class in Internet Addressing, Naming and Routing 15 - 18 June 2015 NEW
The Master Class in Internet Addressing, Naming and Routing provides a thorough introduction to the foundations of the Internet. Understanding the basics of Internet addressing, naming and routing is essential to making sense of broader security, privacy, legal and public policy issues. This course is perfect for both technical and non-technical staff: it contains comprehensive coverage of the topics in language that non-technical participants will easily understand.

Course Coverage

The Regulatory Master Class is the original course which launched TRMC in 2000 and it remains a key part of the course line-up with its coverage of the key areas of the regulatory framework (including licensing, interconnection, numbering and radio spectrum).

The Regulatory Master Class is complemented by the Economic Regulation Master Class together with four additional courses, each of which focuses on a key area of the regulatory framework (as is the case for Numbering, Interconnection and Spectrum) or on an area of specific relevance to the development of the sector, as is the case for the Modern Wireless Networks Master Class.

In 2014, InterConnect launched the Master Class in Internet Governance and Policy, the first of our courses focusing on key topics related to the Internet. In 2015, two further courses join the line-up, Internet Security and Privacy and Internet Addressing, Naming and Routing.

Delegate ProfileTRMC delegate organisation chart

The courses are primarily of interest to organisations responsible for the provision and regulation of communications services (i.e. operators and regulators) and other organisations involved in the telecoms sector. Delegates attending the courses range from Board level to new employees with the majority at a middle / senior manager level.

International Perspective

The TRMC courses are truly international in flavour and this cultural and regulatory diversity has been hailed by delegates as a key factor in the success and popularity of the courses. By the end of 2009, the classes had attracted over 1400 delegates from over 100 countries worldwide.

TRMC delegate region chart Interaction

The course schedules include evening social events and delegates quickly get to know each other. This is further encouraged by interactive group work on case studies.
