GTA Managers Complete Certified Data Center Management Professional Program

(Tamuning, Guam) Wednesday, November 2, 2022, - Three GTA managers recently completed a five-day Certified Data Center Management Professional CDCMP® program offered by CNet Training, the most extensive education provider in the world dedicated to the digital infrastructure industry, including the data center and network infrastructure sectors. 

Erik Aquino, NOC Manager, Jeffery Bailey, Senior Station Manager, and Antonio Prieto, NOC Lead, obtained their CDCMP® in Dallas, Texas, last month. Through the rigorous program, the three gained unparalleled knowledge, skills, and competency to manage the complex technical environments of a data center facility and the ability to optimize its effectiveness by driving efficiencies. 

Roland Certeza, President and CEO, says the individuals currently manage operations at the GTA cable stations and data centers located in Piti, Guam. "Expanding our skills is necessary and we are making additional investments in our people to support our existing data center business along with our plans to expand in Alupang. We have the best technical team in Guam. They’re passionate about caring for the network and customers," he said.

GTA currently runs cable stations and data centers and recently broke ground on the 31,000 square feet Alupang Data Center facility in Tamuning, expanding its communications infrastructure across Guam and internationally. Continued investments demonstrate the local telecom company’s commitment to providing vast technological opportunities and accelerating ongoing digital transformations in the community.
