Before registering for a course, please review the information concerning Entry Level and Content Level that is indicated on the course information page. This will assist you in selecting a training activity that is appropriate for your knowledge level and professional needs.
The Entry Level indicates whether there are prerequisites for taking a course. It is shown in the right column near the top of every course listing.
For more details, see the Prerequisites section within the course description.
Each course description also indicates the number of hours taught at each learning level.
Important: Many courses may combine beginners' + intermediate + advanced + community-targeted parts.
Typically, in a 5-day-course, the first day(s) start with beginner's content, followed by intermediate and advanced content. Therefore, a main topic may show up twice in the agenda, first on beginner's level and later on during the week with intermediate or advanced level.
0-to-100: It often helps to start from zero and progressively learn all you need to use an HPC (high performance computing) system.
Partial courses: According to the specific agenda of such courses (in each course website), you may register for specific days, for example, by choosing the beginners' + intermediate parts.
