Global Skills X-change (GSX)has entered into an agreement with Pearson VUE, a company specialising in computer-based testing, to deliver the Certified Mission Critical Operator (CMCO) exam.
Exam candidates can sit the exam at any of 5,000 highly secure test centres in 180 countries around the world, including at US military bases. They can book their exam online and on-demand for a time and date of their choice.
David Wilcox, president and CEO of GSX, said: "Our new partnership with Pearson VUE will allow us to deliver the CMCO program globally, with a standardised testing environment wherever our candidates prefer to take the exam.
“The CMCO program is a valuable tool for the data centre industry. An outage in a mission critical data centre would have devastating consequences on the business operations of organisations housing data there. To minimise these risks, the CMCO program was developed by data centre experts to address the existing skills gap and ensure certified operators meet required standards."
