Preparing to Attend a Webcast

The web conferencing service to be use for each webcast will be provided on the course page when you enroll for the event. It is best practice to test your computer and network for compatibility with the web conferencing services at least one day prior to the webcast. If you need assistance with testing the web conferencing service, please email HPCtraining@hpc.mil.

About Training Events

Training events vary from 1-hour seminars to multi-day courses or series.

  • Seminars are short (approximately one hour) webinars on various HPC topics of interest to HPC users.
  • Courses are longer events that range from one-half day to several days. Sometimes course are delivered in a series format, for example, meeting once a week over several weeks.

New User Training

  1. Start Here - All new HPCMP account holders should begin with the HPCMP New Account Orientation. This orientation will guide you through the Who, What, When, and Where of the DoD HPC environment to help you successfully use your account and find resources.
  2. Continue Your Learning – As you become familiar with the HPC resources, you will naturally have questions or need help as you begin using the HPC systems. Below are a few popular training topics that users have found helpful.

    HPC Help Desk Video Series
    A great place to learning more about the HPC Help Desk, using FileZilla, and logging into an HPC system.

    New User Training on DoD Machines
    Provides technical information related to questions commonly asked by HPC users. Topics include; computing environment fundamentals, running jobs, and additional capabilities.

    Using the HPC Portal
    Includes an overview of the HPC Portal and an introduction to the file manager and other virtual applications, including the digital engineering tools and iLauncher.

Suggest Training

Submit a Training Suggestion: The DoD HPCMP User Productivity Enhancement and Training (PET) team collects training requests and recommendations to better plan PET supported and/or provided training events. Our goal is to provide advanced user development to the HPCMP user community.

Formal or specialized training requests are accepted and reviewed periodically throughout the year. The PET team is always listening for HPC training topics to better equip users. Training topics should be of interest to the DoD HPC user community as a whole, related to a DoD Technical Thrust Area, or focused on a Computational Technology Area.

To request a training event, complete the PET Training Survey of Requirements.

Note: Input will be considered and used in future PET planning. However, there is no guarantee that all requests will evolve into a PET-funded or supported event.
