Current Training Courses for Research Computing

IT Services offers a range of courses to research postgraduates and staff that will improve your skills in all aspects of research computing including programming, high end computing and visualization.

Researchers (PGR and staff) can book on our courses via StaffNet, which shows our current training portfolio and has largely superceded this wiki.

Unfortunately, these training courses are not currently available to undergraduates, PGT or non-UoM members.
