Leading organisations work together to tackle industry skills shortage

This comprises data centre training and suitability assessment – which aims to give graduates the additional knowledge they need to successfully apply for data centre related jobs today.

The first boot camp is being delivered now in The University of East London. Andrew Stevens, CEO of CNet Training who, with his technical team, has played a key role in scoping the training, ensuring the candidates gain the essential knowledge associated with a data centre technician role, said, ‘Once the candidates understand the place of data centres in the world economy we introduce them to a new discipline of ‘critical thinking’ – similar to that taught in the nuclear and airline industries. Because if they can’t do the joined up thinking necessary to avoid major data centre outages, like we’ve seen in recent years, then they don’t belong in our industry.

‘Every minute that a data centre is out of action can affect millions of people and cost literally billions – so it’s essential that guarding against outages becomes part of every data centre professional’s DNA. Our training provides an in-depth technical introduction to the elements associated with efficient operation and maintenance of a data centre and will help open the students’ eyes with regard to the technical career opportunities that could be available to them within this vibrant and fast moving sector.’
