VPAC provides training seminars and on-line tutorials to introduce new users to High Performance Computing, and to improve the skills of current users.

Our courses are specifically designed to guide users to take maximum advantage of VPAC's resources, and much of the content is also applicable to most High Performance Computing clusters. Our Member faculties and students have first priority for enrolments, and others may be accommodated on a space available basis.
