CNet Training has partnered with Rahi Systems to deliver a three-day Certified Data Center Design (CDCD) program to select customers and vendors. Rahi is organising eight sessions with CNet throughout 2019 at locations in the US, Europe and Asia.
The program is a three-day session designed for individuals who are involved in the day-to-day management of existing data centre facilities, or who are seeking to better understand best practices in the design of new facilities. Participants who successfully complete the program gain official certification, an internationally recognised qualification and may use the CDCD designation in their professional titles.
The first session was completed between March 5 and 7 in Fremont, California, in partnership with electrical and digital building infrastructure provider Legrand. In addition to providing a valuable benefit to customers, the program gives vendors an opportunity to identify the business needs and data centre headaches of customers.
Andrew Stevens, President and CEO, CNet Training said: “We are delighted to be providing the Certified Data Center Design (CDCD) technical education program to Rahi Systems and its partners. It’s great to see companies realising the importance of continued professional development which in turn will improve quality of service and competitive advantage.”
“Many of our customers are looking to optimise their data centres to improve energy efficiency and meet today’s business demands,” said Bill Muczko, Executive Vice President of Sales, Rahi Systems. “CNet’s program directly addresses these requirements in terms of electrical distribution, cooling, cabling and other elements of the physical infrastructure.
“A real-world example guides participants through the business decision-making process as well as project initiation, scoping, implementation and commissioning. An understanding of this framework will help customers ask the right questions and partner more closely with Rahi’s experts in executing their data centre initiatives.”
“We are proud to partner with Rahi and CNet Training to certify our teams and mutual customers to CDCD status,” said Mike Johnston, Vice President of Channel Sales, Legrand. “This professional development helps customers stay up-to-date with the latest practices and accelerates the design and build-out of their data centre environments.”
