Credentialing & Recertification
Credentials that are recognized globally
We have developed four credential tracks that take you through the A-Z of data center design and operations from the technician level right through to sub-system specialisms like advance power and cooling.
Why are credentials important?
They show your employer and your customers that you have the knowledge and skills to perform your professional function. Credentials can help make it easier for a potential employer to envision you doing a specific job and they are part of the continuing professional development you need to advance in your career.
A new approach to recertification
Once you have completed the requisite classroom courses or e-learning modules for your chosen track you will be awarded your DCT®, DCP® or DCS® credential. You can use this for 2 years at which point you will need to re-certify, unless you decide to move onto the next credential track.
This is a fast paced industry so to help you keep up with new technologies and rapidly evolving best practices we are developing a library of micro-learning modules for each credential track.
Our new approach to recertification is about giving you access to the latest learning materials rather than the asking you to resit the same exam you took at the beginning.
We will contact you during the last 12-months of your credential period regarding your recertification plan. If you chose to re-certify, you will be given access to the micro-learning library to take the required courses at your convenience and own pace, ensuring to complete all sections prior to your credential expiration date.
After you have successfully completed the them, you will receive your updated digital badge and social certificate, and will remain credentialed for an additional 2 years.
