Clint Sherratt will work closely with CNet’s technical development manager, focusing on developing and maintaining the highly successful network infrastructure programs. He will ensure that the technical content is accurate, relevant, reflects the current technological advances within the sector, and is engaging for CNet learners. He will also involve himself within the network industry sector, liaising with manufacturers, consultants, and the installer communities to monitor trends and technical developments, seeking opportunities to expand the network infrastructure programs where additional knowledge, education, and skills are required.
Sherratt joins CNet directly from the British Army’s Royal Corps of Signals, where he served a full and rewarding career 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.
“Clint has delivered technical projects in many operational environments (under great pressure), for which he has received the highest recognition and awards,” said Andrew Stevens, CEO, CNet Training.
Sherratt 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 center.
The Certified Network Cable Installer (CNCI®) program created and delivered by CNet is specified as a requirement on many job profiles and installation project contracts. Whilst working for the Royal Signals, Sherratt was part of the CNCI program delivery, which was adopted by the Corps internally to their installation technicians as part of their ongoing education curriculum. Learners undertake copper and fiber cabling installation, termination, and testing to the highest quality whilst complying to industry best practices and standards to ensure a right-first-time approach.
More recently, Sherratt has focused on education and learning, achieving a Certificate in Education and an Honours Degree in Education and has successfully authored Office of Qualifications and Examination Regulation (OFQUAL) awards in an array of subjects and levels.
“We are delighted to welcome Clint on board,” Stevens said. “His knowledge of all aspects of network infrastructure is outstanding, along with experience of the MOD [modular] data center 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.”
