Training and Education

Thursday December 13, 2018 - 04:28


Welcome to SciNet's new education site. It is brand new, so we appreciate all feedback (see "Contact Support" below).

The main purpose of the education site is to support the training of SciNet users. In case you are not familiar with SciNet, SciNet is Canada's largest supercomputer centre, providing Canadian researchers with computational resources and expertise necessary to perform their research on scales not previously possible in Canada. We help power work from the biomedical sciences and aerospace engineering to astrophysics and climate science. SciNet provides resources for Compute/Calcul Canada, a national infrastructure for supercomputing-powered research, and SOSCIP, a Southern Ontario infrastructure for driving innovation.

Most of our education and training involves on-site training session at our headquarters at the University of Toronto. There is currently no online streaming capability on the website, but in the future we will make an effort to post recordings of most of the sessions.

The content of our training courses will be made publically available.

Enrollment and Certificates

While the content of our courses is publically available, you do need an account to enroll. Enrollment allows us to keep track of the training courses that students have followed. SciNet awards a certificate to students that have followed a certain number of course. See here for details.

Getting an Account

The best way to get an account to enroll in SciNet training courses is by getting a SciNet account, as this automatically doubles as the account for this etducation site.

In general, any academic researcher from a Canadian research institution, as well as their group members and collaborators, may apply for an account on SciNet. Details on how to get a SciNet account can be found here .

If you want to take part in a SciNet course and think that you do not fall in this category, please send us a request.
