The Certified Data Center Professional (CDCP) course is designed to expose participants to the key components of the data center. It addresses how to setup and improve key aspects such as power, cooling, security, cabling, safety, etc., to ensure a highly available data center. It also addresses key operations and maintenance aspects.

The primary audiences for this course are IT, facilities and data center operations professionals working in and around the data center (representing both end customers and service providers/facilitators). They have responsibility to achieve and improve high availability and manageability of the data center, including data center managers, operations/floor/facility managers, data center engineers, network/system engineers, and data center sales/consultants.

There are no specific prerequisites for this course. However, participants who have at least 1-2 years’ experience in a data center or facilities environment may be best suited. Those with no experience are also welcome to participate.

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