The efficient use of HPC resources requires skilful personnel that is not only trained in how to efficiently use certain applications, but also have a good understanding of HPC hardware and technologies. Furthermore, the complexity involved in HPC requires great care in how the workflows to solve a given problem are set up, from choosing the right application and hardware mix to solving the questions of how and where to store and potentially visualise the resulting data. There is also a great need of transferring academic results to industry in an efficient and timely way to ensure leadership in the field.

Here we provide a comprehensive overview of HPC training course programmes in the HPC Centres comprising EXCELLERAT. Such training is typically provided through both class room-based courses and online courses that combine lectures with hands-on exercises. For the list of these training events click here:
