A heads up for those who could be interested.


Digium is conducting an Advanced Asterisk Training in UAE in the month of Feb.

DCAP Training - Advance

Asterisk Advanced

Expand your knowledge of Asterisk.

switchvox-smbThe Asterisk Advanced course is a five-day hands-on course that covers the knowledge and skills an advanced Asterisk administrator should know to be effective at his or her job. It is a combination of both lectures and labs designed to give the students both the theory behind the concepts and the hands-on experience to be able to effectively deploy Asterisk-based solutions. This course is the successor to the wildly popular Asterisk Bootcamp, which was retired in 2008.

In Asterisk Advanced, students will learn to create advanced dial plans and innovative telephony solutions by using the features of Asterisk. Along the way, students will also get important insight into VoIP. Students will also explore connecting Asterisk to a variety of devices, including analog phones and phone lines, digital phone lines, VoIP phones and VoIP providers.

Course Format

The Asterisk Advanced course is a five-day course. Class will begin at 9:30 AM on the first day and each day thereafter at 8:30 AM. The class will consist of a combination of lectures and lab exercises. Class typically runs until 5:00 PM, depending on circumstances in the classroom. On Friday, class typically runs until 12:00 noon if you are not taking the dCAP. If you plan to take the dCAP, expect class to run until at least 4:00 PM.

Is this the right class for me?

Asterisk Advanced is a fast-paced technical course that assumes students have completed either the Asterisk Fast Start instructor-led course or the Asterisk Essentials online course; or possess the equivalent real world experience. To help you determine which class will be most helpful to you, you may take the free, online dCAA certification test. If you pass this test then you are most likely ready for the Asterisk Advanced Class. If not, then Asterisk Fast Start or Asterisk Essentials should be completed prior to taking Asterisk Advanced.

Good day,


May I ask why we are using two mailing list? O_o

I thought this one is final and fixed:


I see we are still two teams instead of one and I thought we have talked about that before and agreed to be one team.

I feel lost between these two teams. Above all, I feel really bad that I don't live in Dubai and far away from everything and can't even contribute nor there is any communication between myself and others.
