Working with our education partners to align on industry-recognized curriculum
Datacenter Academy (DCA)
Microsoft partners with local education institutions to augment existing IT curriculum to add instruction unique to IT support scenarios in a large-scale IT environment, such as a hyperscale cloud datacenter. Although the curriculum may vary slightly from school to school, our primary goal is to increase the employability of the local workforce in the community by ensuring that the curriculum aligns to the core competencies and sought after skills in the broader IT industry. While some scenarios and instruction may be specific or unique to a Microsoft datacenter, the curriculum, certifications acquired, and real-world hands-on experience gained through the program, will provide benefits to all students seeking a career in IT.
