Session key:

Introduction to ACT Services – These training sessions are run regularly to familiarise staff and students with our ACT systems. The sessions cover a full hands on introduction to our systems and are run in PC labs across campus. They will give an overview of our systems and storage and teach how to access and use them.

RACC Training – These sessions provide more in-depth training on our Reading Academic Computing Cluster (RACC). Topics covered include for example accessing software, making the best use of the available resources and running batch jobs.
