Managing the facilities of today’s high-end and high-availability data centers is an extremely demanding and complex task which is often underestimated. There is often very little appreciation and understanding of the complexities of managing today's mission-critical data centers where downtime is not an option, especially since many of the data centers are operating at, or near, their design limits. Operations management at the facilities layer makes all the difference.
The CDESS® course is aimed at providing knowledge of the standards and guidelines related to environmental sustainability, and how to move your data centre (existing or new) to a more environmentally sustainable design and operations.
CDCE® is the premier certification for data centre professionals in the data centre design/build and related fields. This 5-day course is designed to prepare participants to analyse a given business case and perform technical evaluation for a project plan and a set of designs for the implementation of a mission critical data centre.
The CDFOS® (Certified Data Centre Facilities Operations Specialist) course is a three-day course which will enable participants to fully understand the requirements of running the day-to-day operations of a mission critical data centre. Participants will gain all the required competences for running the daily operations, understand which processes should be in place, and the critical elements of those processes and how to execute them. The course is fully aligned with the DCOS®.
The CDMS® is a 2-day course is designed to expose participants to a step-by-step methodology which will enable them to reduce the risks involved when undertaking a data centre migration. It will also give participants a lot of valuable practical hints and tips by trainers having extensive experience in moving and consolidating mission critical data centre.
The CDCP® (Certified Data Centre Professional) is a 2-day course is designed to expose participants to the key components of the data centre. CDCP® training will address how to setup and improve key aspects such as power, cooling, security, cabling, safety etc. to ensure a high-available data centre. CDCP® training will also address key operations and maintenance aspects. CDCP® is the first training in the EPI Design and Build training track under the EPI Data Centre Training Framework.
The CDRP® is a 2-day course is designed to expose attendants to the overall risk management process. Focus is on both the data centre infrastructure and the physical data centre facility and equipment; the attendant will learn how to identify and quantify risk in their organization, creating the ability to reduce the risk to a level acceptable for the organization. The course is based on international standards (ISO/IEC27001:2005) and guidelines (ISO/IEC27005:2011, NIST800-30, ISO/IEC31000).
CDCS® (Certified Data Centre Specialist) is a 3-day advance level for training data centre design/build professionals. The CDCS® course will cover engineering calculations on the various components in a data centre facility. CDCS® will further increase attendees' competences to a level of a compatible sparring partner with suppliers and verify offers provided by vendors for correctness, effectiveness and efficiency.
CNCDP® is a 2-day course designed to expose participants to in-depth knowledge in designing and installing the data network cabling system which includes key subject matters such as; technical standards, designing of different cabling sub-systems, calculation of material requirements, architecture, installation, testing and acceptance.
In three-day CTDC® course, the participant will learn how to design an ANSI/TIA-942 compliant data centre. It will provide a clear understanding of the requirements of the ANSI/TIA-942 Standard and possible implementation variations. This course is well suited for all types of data centres, be it enterprise data centres or multi-tenant, third party data centres such as co-location, managed services and cloud service providers.
