Welcome to the Hartree Centre Training Portal

Our Explain training program is application focused, designed to enable individuals and businesses to take full advantage of digital technologies to enhance processes within your organisation and provide the skills that enable you to thrive in a digital economy.  

You can learn flexibly; our training model is built with industry in mind. Whether you’re looking to get to grips with the basics or searching for new tools and techniques to apply, we support both self-directed online learning and face-to-face practical sessions with badge certification available for you to share your new skills with your network.

Our training is designed to help you explore digital technologies like high performance computing, cloud artificial intelligence and data analytics. Our courses are split into four streams and have practical and theoretical elements that aim to equip you with skills that enable organisations to thrive in a digital economy.  

  • Data Science - these courses explore methods that can help your organisation to make the most out your business data. Covering data collection, engineering and data visualisation, we’ll provide the tools and cover practical examples of how data analytics can help optimise your business processes and make data-informed decisions.    

  • Artificial Intelligence and Modelling - Artificial Intelligence can generate real-time decision-making insights from data helping you to innovate, speed up processes and boost efficiency. From predictive maintenance to intelligent automation and the optimisation of tools and processes, our courses will walk you through how to embed AI into your organisation.  

  • High Performance and Exascale Computing - Access to more powerful computing resources can increase productivity and speed up your calculations. Using a combination of theory and practical exercises, our courses will show you how to speed up your calculations and work at scale. Join us if you’re looking for a practical guide to help you use HPC more effectively and want to decide on the resources you need to maximise efficiency and value for your business. 

  • Hybrid Computing - Our courses will help you to explore emerging digital technologies like quantum computing, cloud, IoT and Edge computing. They will guide you through current and future trends, show the latest tools and help you de-mystify jargon to understand how the latest technologies can benefit your organisation.
