        We have been developing the APSIG Program since September 2015 as the two-year project in 2015~2017.
        We target APSIG courses to Internet governance experts and leaders.
        We have 15 Core Classes (indicated in bold characters), and 18 additional classes now. 
        Each class consists of 30-45 minutes lecture followed by 45-60 minutes discussion.  
        We also offer various sessions; hot topic, case study, lightning talk, and BoF among others.

Remarks:
         - The Program is primarily designed for 3~6 day schools with advanced classes.  It may be necessary to modify tracks, and/or classes for 2-day schools.
         - 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.
