Upcoming Training Courses

Training is provided by developers and expert users from the ORNL team. Courses provide a review of theory, description of capabilities and limitations of the software, and hands-on experience running problems of varying levels of complexity.

All attendees for the SCALE training courses must be licensed users of SCALE 6.2, which is available from ORNL/RSICC, the OECD/NEA Data Bank in France, and the RIST/NUCIS in Japan. All currently scheduled training courses are described below.
