This course is intended for both cluster users and administrators interested in constructing and maintaining a cluster for developing and running parallel applications. Some Linux experience is helpful, but not required.
Our course format is based on an instructor led classroom that includes a lecture, hand-outs, and demonstration sessions on a Beowulf cluster.
The training program can be tailored to meet specific customer needs and skill levels. We regularly offer training on both the east and west coasts that anyone can attend.
In addition to our regularly scheduled classes, on-site and off-site training can be scheduled for groups of eight or more. If you don't have a large enough group, we can add you to our waiting list and let you know when a course becomes available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for availability."
