2016 USTTI Training Report
December 22, 2016
In 2016, the USTTI trained 224 officials from 64 developing countries. The USTTI's 34th training year began on the continent of Africa, in Ghana, with a three day training seminar that addressed Cybersecurity and Protecting children online. As the year progressed subject matter experts from government and industry shared their knowledge in USTTI courses addressing spectrum management, broadband deployment, satellite communications, disaster preparedness, telehealth and many others.
While we are pleased with a successful 2016 training year, we are also in the process of planning the USTTI's 35th year of tuition-free training. Early in January 2017, the USTTI's curriculum will be posted at ustti.org. Communications officials, regulators and entrepreneurs who design, regulate and oversee their developing countries communications infrastructure should review the courses that will be posted and apply for those that will best address their goals.
Until then, USTTI Chairman, Ambassador Gardner, the USTTI Board of Directors and the entire USTTI team wish our colleagues and friends all the best for the remainder of 2016 and much success in 2017.
