In accordance with its mandate to provide training on the technical use of SIS II, VIS and Eurodac eu-LISA has this year delivered three training sessions of Classroom courses on the technical use of the systems – Train the trainer. The training sessions were delivered between 28 September and 7 October 2015 in Strasbourg, France. More than 80 participants from 24 Member States using the systems took part in the training courses. General introductory topics on each system were presented with further sessions focusing more on change management procedures, the evolution of SIS II, VIS and Eurodac, incident management and the systems themselves in operation. At the end of each session the Train the Trainer module was offered to the trainees.
Feedback from participants was very positive including an invitation to eu-LISA to repeat these training sessions in the future too.
