More than fifteen week-long FFTI training courses have been run since 1998.

More than fifteen week-long FFTI training courses have been run since 1998, mainly in French-speaking Africa, in partnership with other organisations involved in the transfer of knowledge.

The aim of this training is to allow participating countries to achieve a certain level of technological autonomy.


This initiative has made it possible to create an incubator for local trainers in these developing countries, which has subsequently legitimised the creation of training courses delivered by these individuals.


These FFTI workshops are prepared and implemented thanks to the combined efforts of voluntary members of the International College, the steering committee of the host institution and multilateral partners.


On average, around fifteen engineers are trained per session.


Two levels of training


The experience accumulated has allowed two levels of training to be set up:

  • FFTI1: courses that allow general knowledge of NICTs to be acquired, with a particular emphasis on network administration;
  • FFTI2: advanced courses on IPv6, DNSsec, etc...
