DNS and DHCP Training

ISC customers often have a training component to their support contract and should contact their account representative to discuss options.

To meet the needs of other users, we have teamed up with Men&Mice to jointly develop and present hands-on, highly rated classes on DNS/BIND, DHCP, DNSSEC, Kea, and IPv6. Past participants have come from ccTLDs, national governments, major enterprises, and smaller institutions. And for each course, there is an optional exam included for certifications accredited by ISC and Men&Mice.

Men&Mice has recently announced its 2022 training program of public classes. Most of them are offered online, while a few will be in-person, in Europe. We encourage our users to take a look:
