Certified Data Centre Specialist – SITA WC

“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 by go back for more. You get to meet many different people from the industry and I got to share my experiences and have learnt a lot from theirs, “the real work environment, the real issues one encounters. I am honored 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.” ~ Suleiman Croeser ~ Senior Facilities Infrastructure Manager

Certified Data Centre Professional – Storetech

“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 where 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 benefitting me in my roll with Stortech and Vodacom” ~ Peter Hudson ~ Data Centre Co-ordinator

Certified Data Centre Professional – The Foschini Retail Group

“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.” ~ Conrad Roos ~ Storage Manager
