Certified Data Centre Design Professional


The CDCDP™ course comprises a comprehensive program that explores and addresses all the various elements associated with designing a data centre – from planning and designing physical infrastructure and electrical power supply to air conditioning and data cabling.
British, European, US and International standards are examined in detail and case studies are used to demonstrate best practice. A comprehensive design exercise leads delegates through the varying steps, milestones and vital decisions that are needed throughout the configuration process.
Continually updated to reflect the key industry developments, the CDCDP® also takes into account the requirements of the latest version of the EU Code of Conduct on Data Centres’ Energy Efficiency.
