Schneider Electric has offered online data centre courses for seven years, delivering more than 360,000 courses to 90,000 registered users.
More recently, it started Energy University to deliver courses for anyone involved in the decision-making, management, planning, design, or construction of a space impacted by energy. That operation has already delivered more than 115,000 courses.
The company has now decided to integrate Data Centre University with Energy University as part of a plan to offer energy-related training for all industries and segments within the next three years.
"The addition of Data Centre University is another step in our commitment to help fill the gap in available educational resources for energy efficiency and sustainable operations," said Paul Tyrer, vice president, Pacific, Schneider Electric IT. "Business leaders have a tremendous opportunity today to reduce energy consumption and costs, and the inclusion of the data centre content allows for individuals in the IT space to have access to all aspects of efficiency learning."
