Master Certificate in Data Center Operations and Management

Course Program Type: 

About this Course: 

The Master Certificate in Data Center Operations and Management is awarded to those participants who have completed both the Operating System Virtualization and Network+  Certification Training courses in addition to either Data Center Architecture or Data Center Management of the Information Technology Certificate Program offered through the School of Applied Technology (SAT) of Illinois Institute of Technology. If the participant has already completed coursework, training, or certification equivalent to Network+ Certification Training, then both courses Data Center Architecture and Data Center Management are required. Those interested in pursuing this award must complete at least three courses. Most often these courses can be successfully completed in one year or less.

Participants who wish to pursue this Master Certificate would be best served by working with a program manager of the Information Technology Courses for guidance. Some courses may be taken simultaneously and some may require prerequisites. Allowing the program manager to assist in planning the sequence of courses would ensure a successful and enjoyable experience as participants reach their goals.
