Data centre infrastructure vendor Siemens, has announced its investments in on-going technical education with IT education provider CNet Training.
The move comes as Siemens Smart Infrastructure continues to intelligently connect energy systems, buildings and industries to adapt and evolve the way people live and work.
According to Siemens, it has pooled its expertise and experience in data centre services operations to support and schedule professional development and education activities with leading technical education provider, CNet Training.
The company said the commitment sees Siemens’ Sales and Operations teams across the Middle East, South Asia and Pacific undertake CNet’s highly respected Data Centre Fundamentals programme.
Designed for individuals who are either new to the data centre sector or for those who sell products and services into it, the Data Centre Fundamentals programme provides a detailed insight into what a data centre is and therefore helps to de-mystify the world of data centres. The programme covers key areas, including an introduction into the data centre industry, the types of data centre, key infrastructure requirements, an overview of compliance needs, the people within a data centre and common challenges.
In addition, key aspects relating to basic design and design philosophies are also examined as well as the essential considerations of data centre management.
On successful completion, learners are rewarded a CNet Certificate of achievement and gain use of the official Data Centre Fundamentals Digital Badge to showcase their achievement.
Samir Borkar, Senior Vice President, Head, Data Centre Solution and Services, Siemens, said: “Training, education and professional development is a very important aspect within the culture of Siemens. We have known CNet for many years, the company has a strong reputation for designing and delivering high quality technical education programmes, so we knew they could help us to achieve our objective of meeting a benchmark level of knowledge throughout our sales and operations teams. Fulfilling our objectives will provide additional confidence and motivation across the teams whilst benefitting the company as a whole.”
Andrew Stevens, President and CEO, CNet Training, said: “It’s fantastic to continue to work with Siemens as they invest in their people and understand the true value of education and professional development across their workforce. The Data Centre Fundamentals is the perfect entry programme for team members across the industry, from sales and marketing to operations and finance, it’s a great programme that covers the basic knowledge and understanding of the data centre industry. This investment from Siemens highlights their commitment to progressing and developing their teams globally, and we look forward to continuing to enhance the knowledge and credentials of their teams in the future.”
