    “CDCP gave me a great overview and insight to the Data Centre (even though I’ve been working with Data Centres for many years). The course will assist me to improve our current data centre standards with best practices. There is a big focus on the power components of the data centre (it did feel like an electrical course at one stage), but when I looked back at the end, very relative and key to the operations of the data centre. Lee is a great presenter and I found a lot of value from not only the way he presents the course, but also with his extensive data centre experience.”

    “This is my second course I have taken with Lee. I have to say that some courses I have attended haven`t kept me interested, however both times with Lee were extremely interesting, focusing on what I do, and he knows his stuff, every question asked to him was answered in detail, and with him having experience in the field it really helped. I have no complaints and I`m looking forward to my next course in the near future, it is definitely benefiting me in my role with Stortech and Vodacom”

    “It has been more than a pleasure and an enormous learning curve for me, attending the courses with DS. I have recently done my 3rd course with them, and will definitely go back for more. You get to meet many different people from the industry and I got to share my experiences and have learned a lot from theirs, the real work environment, the real issues one encounters. I am honoured to have done my courses through DS and the weight that name carries in the industry. The courses are excellent and the vast experience that Lee brings to the course makes it invaluable. The way the courses are structured and the interaction during the course just adds that extra edge to it, it’s not only the theory that helps you in the work environment but the knowledge and the experience that you gain from the Lee and the other candidates. I would without a doubt recommend DS courses and rate them number 1 with regards to any Data Centre Training.”

    “The benefits of attending the CDCP training are quiet immense especially to a person like me who has been in the IT field for a long time but lacked any certification for the Data Centre industry. After attending the training I could identify many gaps in our Data Centre. Several things were being done in a wrong way and these need to be corrected. Since I joined the IT field no one has ever told to me that we should be measuring EMF in the Data Centre! The CDCP training gives an in-depth knowledge of how to run a Data Centre following properly set standards of which I didn`t know exist. I would honestly encourage anyone working in Data Centres to attend the CDCP training so as to be on top of the game.”
