Onboard, Benchmark and Certify your Operations Workforce

Blue collar operations is the beating heart of the data center industry, but 24x7x365 uptime requirements make training logistics difficult - a site can't afford their technicians & facility engineers to spend the day in a classroom - yet with human error being the leading cause of downtime, continuous learning is essential to reducing risk & improving efficiency.

This is why our operations syllabus is fully self-paced. Operators can onboard, benchmark and certify their mission critical staff without training interfering with their busy schedules.

DCT is used by Hyperscalers, Service Providers and Enterprises to:

  • Create a single set of standards for facilities staff
  • Benchmark global mission critical workforces
  • Onboard staff new to the data center sector
  • Reduce risk and increase efficiency

Do you fit the DCT profile?

Current DCT holders include both facility staff already working within data centers as well as individuals looking to transition into or start a new career. Gaining this credential will demonstrate to employers that you have an in-depth understanding of the concepts that underpin the mission critical operations discipline and that you are aware of all the major design considerations.

What are the benefits?

By successfully completing the 16 requisite FMCI modules you will be awarded the DCT credential that you can use after your name in the public domain. You will also earn 56 CPD/PDH points which can be used against other professional memberships and certifications.
