HPC@LSU offers High Performance Computing training to LSU and LONI users. We provide introductory courses on MPI, OpenMP and other true parallel programming topics.
Our training courses will be held on Adobe Connect so that remote sites may attend. Click here to view a Attendee Checklist and System Requirements.
HPC@LSU also conducts workshops at LONI member institutions each semester. Schedule for upcoming workshops and slides for previous workshops are available here

All you need do is create an account using a valid email address and your name. Then you just log in to the system and start with the training.
We are currently working on upgrading our Moodle Training site. The new and improved Moodle will allow logins using your LONI, LSU HPC or Google accounts. You can also self register for an account using a valid email address. More details will follow in the coming weeks. When the new Moodle site is available, the old LONI Moodle will be decommissioned. We will not be migrating users accounts and course enrollments from the LONI Moodle.

Training opportunities are also available at the various LONI member institutions.
There are courses on some 237 topics (as of 19 Apr 2012) available to all at the The HPC University. Simply visit the site, create an account, and pick a topic or three.
