Melissa joined CNet with 20 years’ data centre and network infrastructure experience. She has taught at the Top Gun Marine base in California and performed a Data Centre Audit on Department of Defense facilities.
The Data Centre Fundamentals program has been designed for individuals who are new to the data centre sector or for those who sell products and services to the data centre sector. The program has been created to introduce people to the industry and to help de-mystify the world of data centres. The program covers key areas including an introduction into the data centre industry, the current market trends as well as understanding the importance of data centres. Key aspects relating to basic design and design philosophies are also examined as well as the essential considerations of data centre management.
The program can be undertaken at the learner’s convenience over a period of three months, allowing self-paced learning, so the learner can study at times for them, fitting it around life and work commitments. Upon successful completion, learners are rewarded with a CNet Certificate of achievement and gain use of the official Data Centre Fundamentals Digital Badge. With a good fundamental knowledge of data centres, learners can explore further learning to help enhance their career within the data centre sector.
Andrew Stevens, President and CEO at CNet Training comments; “I’m delighted that we are able to offer the Data Centre Fundamentals as a narrated program, learners are able to work through the video at their own pace and Melissa’s video makes the content engaging and brings the learning material to life. Melissa is the only female technical Instructor, with her credentials, that I know of in the industry. This is the perfect program to introduce people, regardless of their role, it’s a fantastic entry program covering all basic skills, knowledge and understanding of the data centre industry.”
