CNet’s US, LATAM & Canada Technical Manager and 7×24 Exchange International Career Development Mentor, Melissa Chambal now narrates the 8-hour distance learning program material for learners to watch at their own pace.
Melissa joined CNet with over 20 years’ data centre and network infrastructure experience, plus five years teaching Data Centre Design and Network Design programs. She has taught at the Top Gun Marine base in California and performed a Data Centre Audit on Department of Defense facilities.
The Data Centre Fundamentals program has been designed for individuals who are either new to the data centre sector (technicians with limited experience or exposure to data centre facilities) or for those who sell products and services to the data centre sector. The program has been created to introduce people to the industry and to help de-mystify the world of data centres. The program covers key areas including an introduction into the data centre industry, the current market and trends as well as understanding the importance and different types of data centres. Key aspects relating to basic design and design philosophies are also examined as well as the essential considerations of data centre management.
The program can be undertaken at the learner’s convenience over a period of three months, this allows for self-paced learning so the learner can study at times convenient for them, fitting it around other life and work commitments. On successful completion, learners are rewarded with a CNet Certificate of achievement and gain use of the official Data Centre Fundamentals Digital Badge. With this good fundamental knowledge of data centres, learners can also explore further learning to help enhance their career within the data centre sector.
Andrew Stevens, President and CEO at CNet Training, “I’m delighted that we are now able to offer the Data Centre Fundamentals as a narrated program, learners are able to work through the narrated video at their own pace and Melissa’s video makes the content engaging and helps brings the learning material to life. Melissa is the only female technical Instructor, with her credentials, that I know of globally in the industry. The Data Centre Fundamentals is the perfect program to introduce people to the industry, regardless of their role, it’s a fantastic entry program covering all the basic skills, knowledge and understanding of the data centre industry.”
