New SDMX training sessions
« on: September 19, 2011, 10:56:33 PM »

Eurostat is organising the following training sessions for statisticians and for IT developers during the period October-December 2011.

1) SDMX Basics (for statisticians and IT staff)
The course duration is two days – beginning Thursday 27 October 2011 at 9:15 and ending Friday 28 October at 16:15 – in Luxembourg, BECH Building, rue Alphonse Weicker, 5.
The training session is aimed at people who are or will be in charge of managing SDMX-based transmission and dissemination of data and metadata, possibly using existing tools. For this reason, the course is also recommended as an introduction to SDMX for people who intend to follow the advanced course "SDMX for IT developers".

2) SDMX Advanced course (for IT developers)
Eurostat is organising two sessions for IT developers lasting 2 ½ days each. Both courses will be held in the training room of Eurostat, BECH A2/45, in Luxembourg, rue Alphonse Weicker, 5.
The first course is directed at JAVA programmers: it begins on Monday 7 November at 14:00 and ends on Friday 11 November at 12:45.
The second course is directed at .NET programmers: it begins on Monday 28 November at 14:00 and ends on Friday 2 December at 12:45.

More details can be found on the Eurostat's SDMX Wiki.
Participation is free of charge. As the number of places is limited, they will be reserved on a first come – first served basis.

As the number of applications for the October session of the SDMX BASICS training course is rapidly growing and the course will soon get fully booked, Eurostat scheduled another session on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 November.
Start time and end time will be the same (start at 9:15 on first day, end at 16:15 on second day).
Content and procedure for reservations are also the same.

Place, as before is Luxembourg (Europe).

Naturally Australia (and New Zealand) are very interested in such training also.  In the meantime, however, the page in the Eurostat wiki is a very useful and highly appreciated resource!

Eurostat organises training courses for EU statistical institutes; that is why these courses are held in Luxembourg.
Within the limit of available posts, participants from any other organisation or part of the world are welcome to attend. Training material (course slides, self-learning videos) are available either from https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/fpfis/mwikis/sdmx or on request.
