  • In terms of how my training helped me in the day to day requirements of my role as a Global Data Center Lead at GSK, the Cooling Professional and Power Professional courses were particularly useful. Cooling Pro was essential in my learning of how to properly finetune cooling mechanics, while Power Pro was key to my work with the generators and uninterruptible power supplies, especially when it came to improving efficiency.
