The scale of changes in the computing world dictates the need to introduce comparably major changes in the education system. Knowledge and skills with a strong foundation in parallelism concepts are becoming key qualities for any modern specialist. The situation cannot be changed by introducing just one training course; progress needs to be achieved in many direction at once, by developing supercomputing education infrastructure. This article is dedicated to presenting work performed in Russia to develop parallel computing, high-performance computing and distributed computing education as well as results which were obtained and lessons we have learnt from the national “Supercomputing Education” project.
