LONDON -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/13 -- DCProfessional Development (DCPro) announced today it has reached a major milestone by training more than 4,000 individuals in the classroom, making it the largest data center specific training organization worldwide.
Since its inception in 2011, DCPro has provided classroom courses taught by a growing network of expert instructors in 24 countries delivered in seven languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, French, Portuguese and Italian.
Peter Curtis, President/CEO of Power Management Concepts, LLC and Advisory Board Member for DCProfessional Development, says, "Training for mission critical environments has historically been a challenge for the industry, but through the ongoing development of industry best practice and standards, combined with the growth of platforms such as DCPro's, it has become easier to educate data center staff to the levels that will impact downtime."
DCProfessional has actively sought to get its courses accredited through multiple nationally and internationally recognized professional bodies, including the IEEE, the American Institute of Architects, NCEES, the BCS, Engineers Australia, BICSI and CITREP (full list available online), allowing students to gain valuable continuing professional development credits. DCPro is also forging relationships with numerous governments worldwide, to help them develop skills at a national level.
