Press release from: CNet Training

London, 20 May 2019 – CBRE Data Centre Solutions, the world’s leading integrated data centre operations service provider, announced today its commitment to further enhance the certification credentials of its technical workforce globally. Through a strategic alliance with industry-leading technical education company, CNet Training, the two firms will deliver a comprehensive training and development programme that requires each data centre technician to achieve the highly respected Certified Data Centre Technician Professional (CDCTP®) certification.

The new alliance builds off a long-standing relationship between the two companies. CBRE and CNet currently co-deliver several technical knowledge systems and assessments to manage risk and ensure uptime at CBRE-managed facilities, including the Competency and Confidence Assessment Modelling (CCAM®) Tool.

Martin Murphy, Chief Operating Officer, CBRE Data Centre Solutions said, “We tremendously value the work that our data centre technicians and broader technical teams undertake, and we want to ensure that they are recognised as the most skilled and knowledgeable in the world. The CDCTP® certification will certainly enhance our teams’ talent, while at the same time deliver on our risk management priorities and drive superior outcomes for our clients.”

Andrew Stevens, President and CEO at CNet Training said, “This is another industry first and we are delighted to be part of such a huge global commitment to education and professional development with CBRE. The company already has an exceptional global team and a solid reputation for nurturing and progressing staff, and this has raised the bar even further. I believe no other organisation has committed to demonstrating that their data centre technicians are the best in the world by proving it with 100% CDCTP® certification. This forward-thinking approach will ensure that CBRE will continue to lead the way in data centre management and operational excellence and challenge the rest of the industry to step up.”

The CDCTP® is a comprehensive, content-rich programme that serves the worldwide data centre sector. The programme is specifically designed for individuals who are responsible for the day-to-day integrity of mission-critical facilities and wish to acquire skills and knowledge of the highest calibre. The curriculum covers key operating environments, operational policies, procedures and compliance based on legislation, standards and codes of conduct, as well as detailed analyses of current measuring, monitoring and auditing techniques. Specific to accommodating CBRE’s global teams, materials are available in seven languages including Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and Portuguese.
