CNet Training has announced the launch of a new program for prospective learners seeking to employ their knowledge and skills within the data centre project environment.
The new five-day Certified Data Centre Project Management (CDCPM) is a qualification level 5 program that teaches how to establish a robust project baseline and a comprehensive plan for a complex, high value data centre expansion project that demonstrates an accurate interpretation of the project scope and focuses on delivering project success in support of business strategy.
Delivered by one of CNet’s expert instructors in a classroom or via remote attendance, the program is designed for either project managers seeking to employ their knowledge and skills within the data centre project environment or those already working in a data centre looking to develop as a project manager.
With a focus on a ‘concept to closure’ theme, the CDCPM program tailors project management tools to the unique requirements of a critical infrastructure project. It examines the tools and evaluation techniques that determine the success of the project.
The creation of the program was driven by a combination of the requirements of CNet’s customers and the exponential demand for data processing and storage, allied to the need to bring services closer to the customer (the edge), recognising the need for sector specific project management, whilst acknowledging that the pressure to deliver additional data centre facilities can be a constant challenge for both owners and operators. Highly skilled and dedicated project managers provide the confidence that enables the extension, build and renovation of facilities that contribute to the expansion of the data centre footprint.
Successful completion of the CDCPM awards an internationally recognised BTEC Level 5 Award Certified Data Centre Project Management, in addition to official CDCPM certification, the use of a post nominal title and a digital badge.
CNet’s Head of Technical Development, Paul Gorman, adds, “My aim in creating this program is to provide a blended learning experience that considers the attributes of the project manager to be as important as the tools and processes available to them. Structured theory content that will seek to stimulate learners as they progress through the program.”
