Learn how to increase the operational capability and productivity of the data centre to continually meet the demands of the business.


The Certified Data Centre Technician Professional (CDCTP®) program is aimed at the numerous technicians across the spectrum of mission critical data centre facilities. It provides a holistic understanding of the key environments and the dependencies and inter-dependencies they have upon one another.


The program is designed to address the need for a designation that allows individuals to demonstrate unrivalled levels of skill and knowledge and to assist them to become key operational assets in their organisation and data centre facility.


Ensuring zero downtime within the mission critical data centre environment involves having highly competent technicians who demonstrate unrivalled technical knowledge and skills. Those with CDCTP® certification are increasingly seen as a vital component to the smooth running of any data centre operation and this program gives learners the ability to identify, decipher, impact assess and remedy potential problems quickly, decisively and accurately.


This program explores the wide range of subjects relevant to the data centre technician including a detailed breakdown of the key operating environments (power, cooling, IT and supporting systems), the necessary operational policies, procedures and compliance based on legislation, standards (national & international) and codes of conduct, as well as detailed analysis of current measuring, monitoring and auditing techniques.


This is a content rich program where the technical content is continually updated to reflect developments covering installation, maintenance (routine and preventive planned) and decommissioning working practices. The CDCTP® also takes into account the requirements of the BS EN 50600 and TIA 942-B standards, industry best practice documentation and codes of conduct.


The CDCTP® program is classroom based and led by one of CNet Training’s expert Instructors.
