With the news that half of the world’s Internet traffic is now running through data centers in Virginia and the big investment from San Francisco-based data center property owner Digital Realty Trust (to invest US$150 million in expanding its existing Loudoun County operations). Unsurprisingly Loudoun County has earned the industry nickname “datacenter alley”.
To meet the huge demand for professional data center training within this location, CNet Training are delivering programs from the Global Data Centre Education Framework in Ashburn, close by to Loudoun. The first program will be the Certified Data Centre Design Professional™ (CDCDP™) and will run in January 2014 (however many other dates and locations are available).
The Global Data Centre Education Framework was designed and created by CNet Training and forms the industry benchmark for global data center training. This unique framework maps professional training with actual career paths within the industry; starting at entry level through to the highly sought after level five professional qualifications. It is recognised and followed by many of the worlds’ major organisations and provides confidence and assurance that their employees are professionally trained to the highest standards whilst allowing them to further progress their knowledge, skills and internationally recognised qualifications by following a structured career path that has been designed especially for the data centre industry.
