We offer several different training, outreach, and support opportunities for using RCC Resources.  Part of our mission is to remove barriers between scientists and students, and the resources needed to complete their work.

RCC Resources

Workshops and Training Events

We conduct several workshops and training events throughout the year in order to introduce new users to our resources.  We also occasionally host Lunch-and-Learns and round-tables to focus on specific areas of science or software tools.

Online Documentation and Guides

Check out our online documentation, which includes "How-To"s for many common RCC tasks, including submitting jobs to Condor and HPC, finding a Spear server, handling compilation errors, and managing your account.

On-Demand Support

If you need help, you can always send a support request.  Our full-time staff of applications and systems specialists will respond to your request timely fashion.

Partner Resources


The Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE) is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated advanced digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. XSEDE provides myriad online and in-person training opportunities. 

The RCC partners with XSEDE for workshops, and allows RCC users to take advantage of the many XSEDE resources available online.


The HPC University (HPCU) is a virtual organization whose primary goal is to provide a cohesive, persistent, and sustainable on-line environment to share educational and training materials for a continuum of high performance computing environments that span desktop computing capabilities to the highest-end of computing facilities offered by HPC centers.


Coursera is an education platform that partners with top universities and organizations worldwide, to offer courses online for anyone to take, for free. Coursera regularly provides high-quality online courses in Scientific Computing.
