CNet has launched an advice and guidance service to help industry professionals progress their knowledge and boost their careers in the digital infrastructure.

The service is designed to help industry professionals throughout the data centre and network infrastructure sectors looking for one-to-one guidance regarding their own professional knowledge, certification and qualification progression.

The company said it will also be valuable for those looking to enter the industry, to discuss and explore the best route to take.

The service is headed up by the CNet technical team, Paul Gorman and Pat Drew who have over 60 years of experience within the data centre and network infrastructure sectors between them.

Gorman is responsible for the technical content of all CNet’s technical education programs spanning The Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework.

He worked as a telecommunications engineer for the British Army and within commercial environments working to design and implement complex network and IT delivery programs. 

Drew has over 24 years of experience in the data centre industry and has worked in various roles from network engineer to data centre manager, covering Europe, North America and Asia.

The company said that the launch of the Education Advice Service will also help to tackle the industry’s on-going skills shortage by providing information on education pathways to help get people into the industry.

Andrew Stevens, president and CEO, said: “We are excited to launch the Digital Infrastructure Education Advice service.

“With such a huge amount of technical expertise in-house here at CNet we wanted to provide the opportunity to share this with industry professionals to help their own knowledge and career progression as well as help those that may be considering entering the industry.

“Paul and Pat have so much valuable experience and knowledge that can be used to genuinely help people, so this is just a little way CNet can help give back to those in, or thinking about joining, the industry.”
