I agree that SuperComputing is a great place to go to catch up on the 
latest technology. And yes, here at Georgetown University (not be 
confused with our neighbor George Washington University) we offer HPC 
training courses (www.gridswatch.com, Training). We have taught a fair 
number of Linux/Unix admins with HPC experience who just needed a 
refresher course. You can see the current offerings at


We have several classes coming in the next few months on a variety of 
topics. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
