I can't make any statement about this particular course, as I don't  
know anything about it content or quality.

There are some talk slides online about SGE from Chris Dagdigian and  
Daniel Templeton. You can search for each of them and limit the Google  
output to filetype:pdf

I would suggest to build a cluster with some spare machines first and  
try to get used to it on your own. Some "tricks" are only circulating  
on the mailing list and I don't know whether they are somewhere in any  
teaching material.
