Certified Data Centre Professional (CDCP®)




With few exceptions, enterprises today rely on IT for the delivery of business-critical services - often directly to the end consumer. It is therefore vital that the mission-critical data centre is designed, maintained and operated with high-availability and efficiency in mind. However, the fact is most data centres do not meet the full availability, capacity, safety or efficiency requirements that are often demanded. The ever-changing technologies put even more pressure on data centre managers along with the faster pace at which these changes are required. 


The CDCP® course is a two-day course designed to expose participants to the key components of the data centre. It will address how to setup and improve key aspects such as power, cooling, security, cabling, safety, etc, to ensure a highavailable data centre. It will also address key operations and maintenance aspects. 


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 standard
  • 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
  • Create effective maintenance contracts with equipment suppliers ensuring the best return on investment
  • 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 

The primary audience for this course is any IT, facilities or data centre professional who works in and around the data centre and who has the responsibility to achieve and improve the availability and manageability of the data centre. 

There is no specific 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.
