ARC offers a range of training courses, online and in person, that enable researchers to professionally write, manage and run their research codes. In the current portfolio, there are courses on Python programming, version control with git and Github, machine learning and data analysis, and using a supercomputer. The portfolio is planned to be expanded in the following years. If there are any courses you’d like to see us provide, please get in touch. We also plan to organise courses with external trainers.

Sign-up for the ARC courses is managed using Inkpath .If this is your first use of Inkpath, you will be prompted to set up a profile first, then you can either go to ’Find Activities’ or search for the relevant course. You can find user guides on Inkpath here

If you can't attend our courses but are interested in the topics covered, take a look at our resources page which contains materials for self-study.
