As a part of eu-LISA’s core activities, the Agency provides training on the technical use of the systems in its remit, namely the Second Generation Schengen Information System (SIS II), the Visa Information System (VIS) and Eurodac. Training is given to operators in Member States that manage the systems, SIRENE officers and Schengen evaluation team members.​ Training activities are in line with relevant provisions foreseen in eu-LISA’s Establishing Regulation.

In the course of 2015 eu-LISA prepared and carried out a number of training sessions for system operators. Following the entry into operations of the Eurodac Recast regulation and the ongoing efforts of the Members States to prepare for this, special focus was given to Eurodac recast related training. Furthermore a series of webinars for Schengen evaluators were also delivered and for the first time special training for SIRENE officers was rolled-out.

Cooperation in training related projects involving eu-LISA stakeholders as well as the European Commission and Member States was heightened during 2015. Particular emphasis was given to improving collaboration in this field with eu-LISA’s fellow JHA Agencies.

​eu-LISA plans to continue its yearly mapping of Member State needs as well as providing improved training initiatives. Special attention will be given to updating existing training curricula and the development of common training activities with other Agencies in the area of Justice and Home Affairs in 2016.

Currently eu-LISA is putting the final touches to a Learning Management System (LMS) platform which, amongst others, will contain further information about eu-LISA training activities and products.
