CNet Training is continuing to expand its technical development team, with Clint Sherratt joining the company as its new technical developer.
Sherratt joins directly from the British Army’s Royal Corps of Signals, where he served in a variety of telecommunications technical roles, starting as a junior installer and progressing through project management positions, into his final role as a training designer for the British Army.
At CNet Training, Sharratt will focus on developing and maintaining the network infrastructure programs that the company offers its trainees. He will ensure that the technical content is accurate, relevant and reflects the current technological advances within the sector and is engaging for CNet learners.
Further to Sharratt’s responsibilities for developing CNet’s training programs, he will work directly with the network industry sector, liaising with manufacturers, consults and the installer communities to monitor trends and technical developments. All of this should better inform CNet’s training courses, ensuring trainees get the most relevant information.
Andrew Stevens, CEO, CNet Training adds, “Clint has delivered technical projects in many operational environments (under great pressure), for which he has received the highest recognition and awards.”
Sharratt was awarded a Queen’s Commendation for Valuable Service for his role in the design, planning and implementation of a project to move the entire Task Force Helmand to a new site in Afghanistan. Conducted under intense operational conditions and collaborating with multiple nationalities, the project delivered a variety of systems and networks centralised in a new data centre.
The Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI) program created and delivered by CNet has become the industry preferred certification for network cable installation and is specified as a requirement on many job profiles and installation project contracts. Whilst working for the Royal Signals, Sharratt was part of the Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI) program delivery which was adopted by the Royal Corps of Signals internally to their Installation Technicians as part of their on-going education curriculum.
More recently, Sharratt has focused on education and learning, achieving a Certificate in Education (Cert Ed) and an Honours Degree in Education. He successfully authored OFQUAL awards in an array of subjects and levels; all of this experience will be put to very good use in his new role.
Stevens continues, “We are delighted to welcome Clint on board. His knowledge of all aspects of network infrastructure is outstanding, along with experience of the MOD data centre structure. Clint is driven and passionate and can’t wait to get involved in providing the highest quality educational experiences to all of our learners. I’m sure the whole team will benefit greatly from Clint’s breadth of knowledge and expertise.
