> One of my main goals within the OWASP Training, perhaps the most important one, is to support your training activities in a way that allows us to use a model that, despite specific and punctual adjustments, can be easily replicated and become the main frame for all Chapter-led training events. http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Training
> In this context, I have been asked to start this approach by contacting Local Chapters who have a positive budget of around $2,000 or, not having it, have the means and energy to find it.
> Furthermore, I have been authorized to propose that we start this effort by using the concept “OWASP projects and resources you can use TODAY” under which the London Training has been developed and to use this model as an example both in terms of concept and methodology. Please see here for all details -http://www.owasp.org/index.php/London/Training/OWASP_projects_and_resources_you_can_use_TODAY#tab=Training_-_May.2C_28th.2C_2010.
> In a nutshell, we are proposing a Chapter’s driven model with Local Chapter organization in which:
> - the courses are free for OWASP members - being that by the time of the training event anyone may become a member if they desire to do so;
> - the contents are OWASP projects focused – to promote the awareness of our Projects and the understanding of how they fit into an Enterprise's security ecosystem or in its Web Application Development Life-cycle;
> - the costs are supported by a mix of funding - local chapter budget, external sponsorship, trainers sponsorship (i.e. trip and/or accommodation paid by themselves) and local chapter members’ sponsorship (i.e. taking trainers in as guests).
> If you would like to organize a training event of this sort, I would suggest that you contact me after gathering the following information which will be our starting point:
> 1. Date of the event
> 2. Venue and directions
> 3. Course’s details - with regard to the contents, we would suggest that the focus falls into the OWASP Projects with the most quality and Projects being developed by members of your local Chapter.
> The role of the Local Chapters in reinforcing visibility of OWASP Projects within the local corporate communities and, by that, in encouraging the use and understanding of our tools and documentation is absolutely invaluable – I hope you can find this opportunity to build a solid and strong training model as exciting as I do and am looking forward to having your thoughts!
