Learners are required to undertake pre-class reading, which is fully supported by an experienced and dedicated Tutor, and bring a laptop with internet connectivity to the class
It is essential that you bring a device with wireless capability, and unrestricted access to the internet as the program is delivered via an online learning management system. The log in process will be explained at the start of your program. The recommended web browser is Internet Explorer 11 but the system supports all web browsers. The program content also requires a PDF reader, adobe flash player and Microsoft word and excel.
Learn how to create an energy efficiency plan for your data centre. Includes creation, implementation, analysis and formulating recommendations with the ultimate objective of reducing energy use and carbon emissions.
Combined with ever-rising wholesale energy prices and legislation that penalises those using excessive amounts of electricity and the impact of carbon emissions; energy and more importantly, energy efficiency, is now an issue that is foremost in the minds of those operating within the data centre space.
The Certified Data Centre Energy Professional (CDCEP®) program teaches expertise in energy efficiency and provides the tools to make a significant contribution to the energy strategy and effectively deal with, and manage, energy related issues and energy efficiency.
Learners will discover how to strategically plan, design and implement an energy plan for data centre facilities, focusing on energy efficiency. They will be introduced to current energy profiler tools and models to analyse site data and formulate a comprehensive action plan to implement real energy savings potential and capacity reclamation.
The use and distribution of power will be explored considering computer systems, servers, networking and other IT equipment and how usage can quickly spiral out of control when not being measured, monitored and maintained correctly. In addition the use of redundant and back-up power infrastructure will be analysed considering the power utilisation for air-conditioning, fire suppression, security, alarms and other supporting systems. These types of high power, high density equipment all placing additional burden on the power supplied and cooling systems.
The CDCEP® program content is continually updated to reflect the key industry energy efficiency developments and takes into account the requirements of the latest version of the EU Code of Conduct in Data Centres and the US DoE Data Center Energy Practitioner (DCEP).
It also takes into account the requirements of 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.
This program is a must for all Data Centre Managers, Operations Managers, Facilities Managers, IT & Network Managers and supporting departments responsible for improving the energy efficiency of all the data centre environments whilst meeting regulatory demands.
