Training

ARCCA provides a programme of events and training courses to help use the High Performance Computing (HPC) Cluster.

These courses are based around the ARCCA system but will also be applicable to research and code development performed on departmental clusters as well as desktop/laptop systems. Training ranges from introductory modules for users new to advanced research computing, through to more advanced topics such as code optimisation for more experienced users. 

The majority of the courses and workshops will be classroom taught with hands-on tutorials examples. 

If you think a specific course or workshop would be beneficial for a sub-group of your school or department (up to 10 people), please let us know and we will try to tailor the course to meet your requirements and run it at a convenient time within the school (subject to available facilities).

Course duration ranges from half-day (three hours) through to two days in length. Specific specialist courses will be run sequentially to form week-long workshops.
