[copy of email 04-APR-17 from K. Smout-Day to jules-users@lists.reading.ac.uk and jules@lists.reading.ac.uk]


Dear All,


Following the JULES annual workshop June 26-28th (lunch) at the Met Office in Exeter UK will be the JULES-Rose training course.


The JULES-Rose training course will also be held at the Met Office in Exeter UK during  June (lunch) 28th-30th.


It is aimed at JULES users that wish to help the community by being a trained JULES-Rose ambassador/power user for their institution.

As a JULES-Rose trained community member they will then be able to help others at their institution with JULES-Rose queries.


The training will provide them with all of the tools, training, information and help they need to be JULES-Rose ambassador/power user.


We are hoping for at least one volunteer from each institution.


Spaces are limited. We have representatives from Leeds, Reading, UCL, CEH, Bangor, Oxford, Exeter, Cardiff and Brazil(?) so far.


Please check you can make the dates.


Please discuss with the appropriate people at your institution first before and email me an expression of interest in attending the course.


The format includes, tutorials, practical’s, questions and quizzes.

Each attending will get a certificate on completion.




More details on the course:

The course will run from ~1pm on the 28th of June until ~12pm on the 30th of June where the first “day” is aimed at JULES-Rose users and the second at the JULES-Rose developers.


There is developers advanced course which I will be available to help people work through on the afternoon of the 30th until 4pm if people can stay and want to develop their understanding further.
