Ooty, India
30 Oct – 4 Nov 2011

Organized by PSG-STEP College of Technology in Coimbatore, India, infoDev the Train-the-Trainer workshop brought together more than 30 business incubation bator managers from across the Asia Pacific Incubation Network. This workshop focused not only on the content of infoDev's 12-module training program, but also on skills to deliver participant-centered training (PCT).
As a result of the workshop, infoDev certified 34 new trainers from 10 countries: India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam as well as Brazil and Costa Rica. 11 of these new trainers are women, based in India, Mongolia, Nepal, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
Part of the group of trainers were three SPICE Group Members: Julian Webb (Australia), Cesar Yammal (Argentina), and Heinz Fiedler (Germany). After successfully attending this event Annuar Saffar (Malaysia) and Mercedes Barcelon (Philippines) became certified infoDev trainers as well.
Although the event did not allow to set aside time for a formal SPICE Meeting, the week-long program allowed many opportunities for informing each other about recent developments an planned activities
