The data centre sector is a fast growing part of the overall ICT industry. Driven by the ever growing need of integrated communication solutions, social media, online content and cloud enabled infrastructure, the industry keeps growing at a very fast pace and more data centres are being built to enable this growth. Various industry reports indicate that there is a shortage of skilled data centre personnel. This shortage is created by the ever changing technology resulting in the current data centre personnel having “outdated” knowledge and skills as well as the expanding data centre market leading to a shortage of new data centre personnel. It is also often indicated by the industry that there is a gap between the skills of fresh graduates and the practical skills and knowledge required in today’s data centre industry.
The Data Centre Foundation Certificate (DCFC®) is a 2-day course designed to deliver foundation knowledge about data centre facilities infrastructure. It provides participants with global overview and knowledge on data centres which will be of advantage to the participants who are looking at joining the ranks of professionals working in the data centre, ICT, infrastructure or the mechanical and electrical (M&E) design industries. It will also form a solid foundation for participants who wish to pursue his/her studies either academically or to further his/her industry specialisation with professional certification courses on data centre design/build, operations/governance and/or standards/compliance.
With the tremendous growth of data and the data centres to support it, the demand for data centre professionals will grow in tandem.
