Learn how to scope, plan and implement a data centre design to meet the ever expanding demands of today’s business environment. Utilising best practices and applicable standards across the key data centre infrastructures.
The Certified Data Centre Professional (CDCDP®) program is proven to be an essential certification for individuals wishing to highlight their expertise and progress their career within the data centre sector.
The program has a comprehensive agenda that explores and addresses the key elements associated with designing a data centre. It teaches industry best practice principles for the design, construction and operation of computer rooms and data centre facilities. The program also addresses the requirements of a successful design to meet the business needs, incorporating the key infrastructure elements of the physical infrastructure, electrical distribution systems, air-conditioning, data cabling and building support systems. It concludes with a comprehensive case study exercise that leads learners through the design steps from initiation to commission, covering the business decisions, design scope and implementation phases that need to be addressed throughout the design configuration process.
The CDCDP® also takes into account the requirements of the current BS EN 50600 and TIA 942-B standards, industry best practice documentation and codes of conduct. During the program learners will also have access to current standards for reference purposes.
The program will prove beneficial for professionals already working and implementing design projects within a data centre facility, or those looking to move into the data centre environment from IT, network, data cabling or facilities management backgrounds.
The CDCDP® program content is continually updated to reflect the current data centre industry design practices and supporting technology.
