Eligibility for training

ARCHER2 training courses are provided free of charge to all academics, but attendance by non-academics would normally require a registration fee. However, we are not charging for attendance while we deliver all courses online due to government advice on social distancing.

Courses marked PRACE are also funded by PRACE and are free to everyone including commercial attendees.

We normally charge a fee for non-academics. If you are from a commercial organisation and wish to attend a particular course or arrange training at your site by the EPCC team then please contact the ARCHER2 Training Administrator.
