Please note that the workshops are taking place in a number of locations this term, 31 Great George Street, in training rooms 1.17 and 1.18 plus meeting room 3.05* (where attendees will need to bring laptops with Eduroam enabled and Putty installed), room W414 in the School of Chemistry and room F101a** in the Queen's Building (where laptops should be available, but we recommend bringing your own where possible).

For the workshops being held at 31 Great George Street, due the the nature of the building, which has many steps and ramps, any person who has mobility issues that prevent them from using stairs or steep ramps unaided or only lightly supported will not be able to evacuate safely in the event of a fire. We can arrange a one-to-one training session in another location, so please do not book using the online form, but contact Caroline Gardiner to discuss your requirements.

If you need to cancel your place on a course please use the OnCourse link in your confirmation email at least three working days in advance of the course. People on the waiting list will then be offered your place automatically. We do not charge for our courses nor do we charge cancellation fees. If you are unable to attend due to sickness on the day, please email acrc-training@bristol.ac.uk or phone 0117 394 1732.

NB Unless explicitly stated, a working knowledge of the Linux command line (including use of a text editor) will be assumed. If you need to refresh your Linux knowledge have a look at: https://source.ggy.bris.ac.uk/wiki/Linux1 or http://www.ee.surrey.ac.uk/Teaching/Unix/.
