Through our links with national services, international collaborations and other projects, we deliver a wide range of training courses in High Performance Computing and Data Science.
EPCC provides training for users of the ARCHER2 service.
Whilst these courses focus primarily on the ARCHER2 system, they also include courses of wider interest, including courses on MPI and OpenMP. Many course videos and course materials are available.
Software Sustainability Institute
EPCC is actively involved with the UK’s Software Sustainability Institute (SSI), through which we offer training courses in Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry which are designed to introduce researchers in various fields to Software Engineering and Data Science.
European collaborative project
We help to deliver courses in Computational Biomedicine as a Core Partner of the European Commission-funded CompBioMed Centre of Excellence.
In collaboration with partners from PRACE, EPCC has developed a 5-week Supercomputing MOOC (a free, open, online course) in Supercomputing. The course is designed for anyone interested in leading-edge computing technology, supercomputers or the role that computer simulation takes in modern science and engineering.
Data science workshops for health and biosciences researchers
Ed-DaSH workshops teach a mix of existing and new content, including new material developed in parallel by other initiatives, to address the skills gaps most frequently identified by health and bioscience researchers. EPCC manages Ed-DaSH, and provides technical support for its workshops through the Edinburgh International Data Facility.
