This paper concerns the deployment of the Internet over satellite circuits. A lack of operators is problematic to the spread this technology. In order to overcome this obstacle, this paper addresses training of the network's operators. In Internet operation, not only technical issues, but also issues regarding communication between operators become important when configuring routing setups such as BGP. Therefore, an operator learning workshop intended to provide knowledge and experience regarding the network's operation was held in Japan. Through this workshop operators learned to configure routers by themselves and solve problems when they occur. The workshop was also intended to foster a sense of community among its participants, which will help facilitate the configuring of a routing protocol such as BGP.
