I'm not aware of any online courses for MCNP. Usually, one would have to take a university course, or attend a short course (1 week) for an introduction to MCNP. Use of such a code would coincide with a course on radiation transport or radiation effects on materials.

One can find information on classes at https://mcnp.lanl.gov/
