Accredited Data Center Training Programs

Uptime Institute’s accredited data center training programs are your key to obtaining the essential practical knowledge needed to own and operate today’s modern data centers.

Investing in accredited data center training from Uptime Institute helps increase the knowledge base of your team, improve operational efficiency, and reduce business risk by ensuring that operations follow best practices. Participants emerge from the training as experts in the field who understand how to align and support infrastructure and operations with the uptime mission of the organization.

Each of our three core programs is designed to allow students to start with the essential knowledge they need to do their current jobs and then grow in their ability to meet more demanding challenges over time. Once enrolled in a specific program, successful completion of initial courseware will result in the student’s base-level credential being authorized, “Accredited”.

Through additional course material completion and associated evidence submission requirements, the student can gain “Professional” and then “Expert” designations based upon their demonstrated mastery of the concepts. This applies to all designers, specialists and operations-focused individuals. And best of all, all of these training programs can be completed in training centers, on your own premises or entirely online as your schedule and travel guidelines permit.
