Excel in a highly skilled and efficient technical team charged with optimising the operational capability and productivity of the data centre to meet the evolving demands of the business.
Ensuring zero downtime within the mission critical data centre environment involves employing highly competent and confident technicians who consistently demonstrate unrivalled technical knowledge and skills. High quality technicians are increasingly seen as a vital component to the smooth running of any data centre operation.
The five-day Certified Data Centre Technician Professional (CDCTP®) program is for individuals working within mission critical data centre facilities. It explores the wide range of subjects relevant to the data centre technician including a detailed breakdown of the data centre operating environments and the four key constraints to its operational effectiveness (power, cooling, IT and space), the necessary operational policies, procedures and compliance based on legislation, standards (national & international) and codes of conduct. During the program, learners will be provided a valuable opportunity to access the latest industry standards.
Certified technicians can foresee potential causes of failure honing an in-depth understanding of facility components and their operating parameters. In addition, technicians can identify, analyse, and remedy problems as they occur, quickly, decisively and accurately, avoiding potential high cost repairs and the risks associated with loss of service.
Following this program, you are encouraged to continue your professional development by advancing your knowledge and skills to gain further official certifications and qualifications by progressing through The Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework which maps education programs to career advancement throughout the network infrastructure and data centre sectors.
