We invite you to find out more about the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and advanced computing in our upcoming courses. Pawsey Supercomputing Centre training courses include introductory sessions on Pawsey, Supercomputing, Cloud computing and Linux, as well as advanced sessions on MPI, OpenMP and GPU programming. Sessions on visualisation and data are also offered. Descriptions of our training courses are detailed on the Course Description page.

Details of upcoming courses will be made available on the Events page and circulated to the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre Mailing List. Subscribe to the Mailing List to keep updated on our training and events.

Note: Dates are subject to change every year. Registration forms will become active two months before the scheduled training.

Who should attend user training?

We recommend that current and future users of Pawsey’s computational resources


- particularly users of Setonix and Acacia - attend user training to most effectively and efficiently use Pawsey resources.

Are there pre-requisites to user training?

Some course have specific pre-requisites or skills to attend the training. Those pre-requisites will be noted. Additionally: 

  • All course attendees: Require basic computer literacy, such as familiarity with the command line/Linux.
  • Advanced/Developer courses: Typically require experience programming in C/C++ or Fortran.


The training courses that the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre regularly gives to academia are also available to industry and government. We are also able to provide tailored courses at customer premises where there is interest from a larger group of people.


Can a training be tailored to my group? 

Much Pawsey training is relevant across scientific domains. This is called 'generic' training.

However, some training is best tailored to the application within a specific domain. This is called 'bespoke' training.
