Duration: 2 Days

Language: Conducted in English by EPI Certified Instructors
 

CDCP® Overview
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.


Audience
The primary audience for the CDCP® course is an IT, Facilities or Data Centre Operations professional working in and around the data centre (representing both end-customers and/or service provider/facilitators) and having responsibility to achieve and improve hi-availability and manageability of the Data Centre, such as: Data centre managers, Operations / Floor / Facility managers, data centre engineers, network/system engineers/data centre sales/consultants.

 

Prerequisites
There is no specifc prerequisite for the CDCP® course. However, participants who already have at least one or two years’ experience in a data centre or facilities environment may be best suited. Those with no experience just yet are most welcome to participate.


Course Benefits
After completion of the course the participant will be able to:

  • Choose an optimum site for mission-critical data centre based on current and future needs
  • Describe all components that are important for highavailability in a data centre and how to effectively setup the data centre
  • Name and apply the various industry standards
  • Describe the various technologies for UPS, fire suppression, cooling, monitoring systems, cabling standards, etc, and to select and apply them effectively to cost-efficiently enhance the high-availability of the data centre.
  • Review the electrical distribution system to avoid costly downtime
  • Enhance cooling capabilities and efficiency in the data centre by using existing and new techniques and technologies for the increased cooling requirements of the future
  • Design a highly reliable and scalable network architecture and learn how to ensure installers apply proper testing techniques
  • Describe (high-level) data centre operational considerations supporting mission-critical environments
  • Setup effective data centre monitoring ensuring the right people get the right message
  • Ensure proper security measures, both procedural and technical, are established to safeguard your company's valuable information in the data centre
