We have a 3.1 series beginners guide available through the main website
for purchase in various formats. You might like to use it as an
available course book. It has everything you are seeking to teach in the
concepts and feature use areas. There are some simple hands-on pieces in
there. But you will want to write more complex tutorial tasks yourself
or from other sources.

  Skills such as how to data-mine the living documentation at and websites for specific
problems will be useful for early beginners to find new things. Most of
what I do here is point people at this info or re-write it to suit their
particular situation.

If you are going to include TCP instructions IPv6 basics is also
required these days. Squid-3.1+ being one of the tools designed to make
the addition of IPv6 easier and more comfortable by gatewaying between
the IP networks.
  "How do I enable it for just HTTP but not everything else?" is one of
the questions beginners to IPv6 still worry over needlessly. There are
multiple safe answers besides Squid. Awareness is the key.

Thank you for your focus on Squid. We are happy to assist with
advertising of Squid related services and products on the squid-cache
website. If you want a potentially global spread of clients let me know
when you are ready to go.
