[AusNOG] IPv4 - Where is the training?

If we can have 50 posts about 23 IP phones on list, then I'm sure some 
discussion about IPv6 training can be endured even if there are parties 
with a commercial interest.

I am interested and I wonder how many more folk in my area would also be 
interested (Christchurch) hence why I've copied the NZNOG in as well.

What the discussion over the past few days has highlighted for me is I 
clearly don't know enough and if the messages in my inbox are anything 
to go by, then there must be others in the same boat.

I'd like to understand what the training I need might cost me. How much 
people think I need to invest in myself to get myself on track.

I'd be interested to hear from others, on or off list who might also be 
interested in some more help to get up to v6 speed.
