What students say

  • I wanted to make sure that all client facing staff know what the company does as most of then join the business with no prior knowledge of the industry nor any exposure to a data center environment. All sales and marketing staff are enrolled on the 3 day DCDA public courses soon after they join.

    At a public course they meet vendors, consultants, enterprise clients and even competitors and understand the ecosystem. The course content arms them with the right vocabulary and a basic understanding of the fundamentals that helps them contribute to discussions back at the office and ultimately to sell better.
