The HPC Certification Forum

The goals of the HPC Certification Forum (HPC-CF) are:

  • Standardizing the HPC knowledge representation into fine-grained competencies
  • Establishing internationally recognized certificates attesting knowledge
  • Supporting an ecosystem around the HPC competencies

The HPC Certification Forum is one of those ideas so good and so right that you wonder why no one thought of it before. The Forum's Steering Board and members have done the technical community an enormous service by providing a concise training in what it takes to be HPC-literate. I wish we had had this thirty years ago.
