Since 2009, the CMS experiment at LHC has provided an intensive training on the use of Physics Analysis Tools (PAT), a collection of common analysis tools designed to share expertise and maximise the productivity in the physics analysis. More than ten one-week courses preceded by prerequisite studies have been organized and the feedback from the participants has been carefully analysed. This note describes how the training team designs, maintains and improves the course contents based on the feedback, the evolving analysis practices and the software development.
