Distance Learning Programs

The main advantage of distance learning is that it allows you to fit the learning around your work and home life commitments from anywhere across the globe.

What is Distance Learning?

CNet Training has a range of programs available that are distance learning based. The learning resources are accessed online allowing the learning to be undertaken asynchronously. The programs give the learner flexibility to study from all over the world, at their own pace and at a time that is most convenient to them.

Once enrolled in one of the distance learning programs, learners are able to access CNet’s Learning Management Systems (LMS), where they can access and progress through all the learning material required to complete the program.

The unique element of CNet’s distance learning programs is continual access to a dedicated online tutor, a highly experienced data centre professional who offers one-to-one support and guidance as needed. Learners can contact the online Tutor via:

• Live support

• Zoom Meetings External Tool, which provides meetings, tutorials and one to one support from the Tutor using video conferencing, webinars and screen sharing

• Learner and Tutor question and answer forum for all learners to post questions and request more information, advice and guidance

The distance learning programs currently available are the Certified Telecommunication Project Management (CTPM®), Certified Data Centre Sustainability Professional (CDCSP®), Data Centre Fundamentals and the Master Degree in Data Centre Leadership and Management.

The programs comprise modules that are studied asynchronously with online Tutor support and at the end of each module, there is a quiz to confirm newly gained knowledge. The results of each quiz count towards the successful completion of each program.
