If you or your team is involved in data center technology, whether it is in a sales, support, or operations capacity, it is important to have a good understanding of the overall data center and the issues facing data center managers on a daily basis.  The Data Center Infrastructure Management course series is a great way to quickly learn the ins and outs of data centers.  It is geared for everyone from the data center novice to the most experienced IT and facilities technicians and managers.  The Data Center Infrastructure courses cover the primary resources in the data center – space, power, and cooling.

Students who have taken this course are the proof of the effectiveness.  A significant number of people who have taken this course had the course recommended to them by a previous student, a testament to the value of the information they learned during the course.  Here what students are saying about the course below.

Course recommendations:

  • “Excellent knowledge – the instructor tied just about every subject to an illustrative real-world situation he had encountered.”
  • “Wanted to say a big thank you for the course this week. It will truly help me at my job going forward.”
  • “Superb! Where there are a lot of courses and training on data center maintenance and operations, it’s much harder to find something related directly to the data center and IT infrastructure management. This is very important to support DCIM concept today – not only with tools, including software and hardware solutions but also with dedicated training.”
  • “Great job Dave, the industry needs more training like this in order for DCIM to rise to its full potential as a must-have operational imperative.”
