Enthought courses are hands-on affairs with 15-30 minute lectures, interleaved with programming exercises typically done within the IPython interpreter shell. The exercises provide practical experience with the tools for real-world problems. Upon completion, students will be comfortable building computational models and analyzing data at the Python command prompt as well as writing scripts to automate their computational tasks.
Enthought provides a hard copy of the slides used in the class, for reference purposes, as well as exercises, solutions, homework, and other handouts. Exercises and solutions are in the form of electronic Python files, which students can modify to develop their own solutions.
Students should bring a laptop (Windows, Linux, or OS X) pre-loaded with Python and the tools covered in the class. Typically, numerous Python libraries are used and Enthought Canopy provides a convenient, cross-platform way to set up such an environment with a single-click installer. We highly recommend that all students install it to ensure compatibility with class exercises.
Enthought accepts payment by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) or company check. Until a form of payment is received, the student's space in the course cannot be guaranteed. Payment must be received in full prior to the start date of the course.
Training attendees may cancel or reschedule their class participation at any time subject to the following conditions:
Student substitutions are accepted at any time.
In the unlikely event that we must cancel the course for any reason, we will provide a 100% refund of your payment.

The Austin-Bergstrom airport is about 20 minutes from downtown, and the city bus service offers an Airport Flyer route that makes a circuit through downtown. The stop at 6th and Brazos is just one block from the Enthought office. The bus is an especially good option for the return trip to the airport since the stop is so close to the office. The return cost is just $1 for the 20 minute ride. The ride into town takes considerably longer because of numerous stops and costs about $3. Listed below are additional transportation options:
