Remarks:
         - This Program is primarily designed for 3~6 day courses.  It may be necessary to modify tracks, and/or classes for shorter courses.
         - There are three levels of courses; advanced, general, and introductory.  APSIG offers advanced courses, and national SIGs
 may offer general courses 
           for Internet governance practitioners and/or introductory courses. 
Memo on advanced course vs introductory course is provided for clarification.
