A participants attende IMCK/Sulaimanyah
As the other training that I did with IMCK, the participant seems to be happy and ready to know new information about social media and online security.
Actually I was happy with the participants and So after finishing training most of them told me “we are so happy about the training”. One of the participants is the head of sulaimanyah traffic media has told me “when I came to this training I felt that it is like others in kurdistan they are routine discussion about topics of trainings, but now I am happy with the information I get in this training” and he asks me to tell him about next training in IMCK.
In brief I think most of the journalist in Kurdistan have a problem with internet security, so IMCK can do some training about it and it’s a good work for IMCK.
