= Frequently Asked Questions =
=== I cannot attend or I wish to cancel ===
Please [[|log in to your training profile]] in the [[|Training Catalogue]] and cancel your booking so that we can allocate your place to somebody else. Please note ''a fee may be charged if you fail to attend or cancel less than 1 full working day before the course begins''.

All course presentations are always available from the individual course pages listed above. There are also [[../Courses/TrainingBackgroundMaterials| Training Background Materials]] which include a CSF Quick Start Guide.

=== I need to leave feedback after a course ===
## ask Richard to check if the following link is still valid after his updates

=== I have a question about the courses ===
If you have any other enquiries about the courses please do not hesitate to contact the ITS Research Training Team via [[|]].

## we don't want to advertise location on public site since it led to people just turning up
## == Location of courses ==
## Courses are usually held in the Kilburn Building ([[|39 on map]]). Full details of times and venue will be sent to you via email when you've been registered on the course.

Current Training Courses for Research Computing

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(PGR and staff) can book on our courses via StaffNet, which shows our current training portfolio and has largely superceded this wiki.
