RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Chekhub—Chekhub announces its partnership with the Nomad Futurist Foundation as the Learning Management Systems (LMS) platform to enable robust educational and training initiatives for the Nomad Futurist Academy. Rooted in the data center industry, this partnership embraces the goal of building the leaders of tomorrow by developing scholarship funds and an education platform for underdeveloped communities globally.
“A primary goal of the Nomad Futurist Foundation is to provide education to children in underserved communities with a strong foundation in digital technologies,” says Nabeel Mahmood, Co-Founder and CEO of Nomad Futurist. “While some children may know how to use popular apps, they do not know why and how these apps work. Our goal is to intercept them at a young age, when their minds are like sponges, and introduce the topic of digital infrastructure to promote understanding of digital technologies, new learning pathways and opportunities.”
The data center industry is forecasted to increase by $616 billion by 2026, with an estimated growth rate of 20% year over year. However, the percentage of data center owner/operators that are having difficulty finding qualified candidates for open positions rose to 50% by 2020, according to Uptime Institute.
Chekhub’s Data Center Operations Platform has been designed to empower the Data Center industry workforce. The recent addition of the LMS module allows users to create custom training materials, add qualifications to individual profiles, and ensure work is being assigned to qualified people. Chekhub’s expertise and ambitions align with Nomad Futurist’s mission and goals for the academy making them the optimal partner to introduce the industry to the next generation of Data Center professionals.
“It’s been Chekhub’s mission since inception to support the training and development of the workforce in this industry,” says Jon Trout, Founder and CEO of Chekhub. “Our team is honored and excited to be part of this initiative and be the LMS platform used by the students of the Nomad Futurist Academy.”
We live in a digital world that will only become more dependent on Data Center services. To broaden the learning audience, Nomad Futurist Academy will introduce the Information Technology and Data Center industry to K-12 students as well as professionals interested in transitioning careers. With a content-rich curriculum created by the leading organizations in technology today, courses will be available on the Academy’s easy-to-use LMS platform powered by Chekhub, online and free to communities.
