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 for tier certification standards.

Participants are led by our data center professionals and are taught the same best practices that we use in our data center consulting services.

Participants will emerge from the training as experts in the field who understand how to align and support data center infrastructure and operations with the uptime mission of the organization.

Data Center Training Program Overview:

Each of our three core data center training 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 training program,  trainees complete initial courses that will give them base-level tier accreditation for their role.

From there, students can continue their education and gain “Professional” and then “Expert” designations by completing additional data center training courses within their program.
