It is only natural that the ETSF is dedicated to spread the knowledge and experience gathered in its community, both from the view point of theoretical physics and the implementation in software packages. Training is provided in three ways:
- Tutorials and hands-on: The ETSF regularly organizes training events mainly targeted at young researchers pursuing, or wishing to pursue, a career in the area of theoretical spectroscopy. These events also attract ETSF users, researchers from other fields wishing to gain knowledge of theoretical spectroscopy. Training material of the past schools and events organized by the ETSF or its member groups is available on-line.
- On-demand training: Training is offered upon request to ETSF users, typically experimentalists, scientists working in industry, or researchers working in a similar field. ETSF users can apply for specifically targeted training, for small groups or for a single person.
- Online modules: An on-line training portal on the methods of theoretical spectroscopy is available for dedicated students of the theoretical background as well as interested or potential users of the Infrastructure. The training modules outline the essential features and aim to aid further in-depth study of the theory in an on-line fashion.
