The CCRC offers various training courses for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral research associates, and visiting scientists from the U.S. and around the world in the principles, methods, and analytical techniques used to study complex carbohydrates. Courses are designed for different groups of scientists, including both participants who have little or no prior experience in carbohydrate chemistry and experts who would like to become more specialized.

Short-term trainees may enroll in one or more of the four one-week training courses the CCRC offers every summer for scientists in academic, governmental, or industrial laboratories.

These varied training opportunities are supported in part by fees from participants and by funds from the US Department of Energy and the US National Institutes of Health.
