PRACE Advanced Training Centres (PATCs) carry out and coordinate training and education activities that enable both European academic researchers and European industry to utilise the computational infrastructure available through PRACE.

The long-term vision is that PATCs will become the hubs and key drivers of European high-performance computing education. 


EPCC's upcoming PATC courses are listed on the Upcoming courses and events page.

For details of all PATC courses across Europe, see the PRACE Training Portal.

Attendance at all PATC courses is free.
