About the National Course Directory

This National Course Directory pays tribute to the “localization of training material” and provides a space for the localized versions of the training materials; specifically targeted at the Community of FOSS business trainers who will be conducting regional training in their specific countries and may need tips and help in conduction training and the localization of their material. However, this channel also provides means by which other actors, such as the initial content creation community as well as the FOSS Business community of practice, can be actively involved in the continuous evolution of the training material.
