Zurich, 29 Mar 2018 – Digicomp, Switzerland’s leading partner in the development of digital skills for business, has partnered with EPI, the global leader in data centre training and audit and certification services. Digicomp will offer the globally recognised EPI data centre training framework that will help address the data centre skills gap in Switzerland. The certification-based courses focus on competences for data centre design/build, operations/governance and standards/compliance.
Ensuring people have the right skills to design, operate and manage the data centre efficiently and effectively is vital in a world increasingly reliant on the services of the modern data centre. Having the right skill set reduces the risk for potentially costly errors and downtime.
EPI’s training courses address these issues by enabling businesses to design, implement, operate, maintain and optimise their mission-critical data centre infrastructure to ensure that it exceeds the business' expectations.
Edward van Leent, Chairman and CEO for the EPI Group of Companies explains, “EPI is by far the largest vendor-neutral data centre training provider in the world. This is due to the quality of our course content, trainers, and independent accreditation. Participants have feedback that our training have enabled them to improve their current data centres and helped them develop long term successful careers. We are extremely pleased with our partnership with Digicomp and advancing the data centre professional education in Switzerland.”
Bastiaan Janssen, Managing Director of EPI Europe, shares, “Digicomp is a trusted name in the professional training industry in Switzerland with 40 years of focus on providing quality training. We are looking forward to bringing our course portfolio to the Swiss market through Digicomp.”
Barbara Fricke, Product Manager of Digicomp, says, “We’re very proud to announce our partnership with EPI. The EPI data centre training courses is a perfect addition to our training portfolio, as the Swiss data centre professionals have not been exposed to such training yet. This is the age of globalisation and global benchmarking is essential to compete effectively. We chose EPI simply due to their outstanding reputation in the market as well as their broad range of courses in this niche segment of the market.”
