Who Can Attend

The primary audience for this course is an IT, facilities or Data Centre Operations professional working in and around the data centre and having oversight accountability or responsibility for achieving and improving high availability and manageability of the Data Centre and involved in the design/build, renovation or relocation of a mission critical Data Centre.


Attendees who successfully pass the exam will receive the ocial ‘Certied Data Centre Expert’ certicate. Certification is valid for a three years period after which the student needs to re-certify. More information on re-certification and verication of the current status of certication can be found on the EPI corporate website,

Certified Data Center Expert (CDCE)

Course Code:



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 hi-availability and e ciency in mind. Fact is, however, that most Data Centre's do not meet the full availability, capacity, safety or e ciency requirements often demanded. The ever changing technolo-gies put even more pressure on data centre managers along with the faster pace at which these changes are required. The Certi ed Data Centre Expert course is a ve-day course designed to prepare participants to analyze a given busi-ness case and perform technical evaluation for a project plan and a set of designs for implementation of a mission critical Data Centre. The course also engages partici-pants in product evaluations and demonstrates how to select equipment and develop equipment test scripts (IET) and integrated performance and validation testing (IPVT). CDCE® builds upon knowledge gained in CDCP® and CDCS® courses. Participants who pass the exam will join the industry’s elite Data Centre project design experts.


Participants must hold a valid CDCS® certi cate in order to register for the CDCE® class.


5Days (40 hours)

Course Objectives:

After completion of the course the attendee will be able to:

  • Choose an optimum site for mission critical Data Centre’s based on current and future needs
  • Describe all components important for hi-availability in a Data Centre and how to e ectively setup the Data Centre
  • Understand the design lifecycle stages for Data Centre build projects and the phases involved in project execution.
  • Analyze a business case and develop a project brief that is aimed at ful lling the business resilience, site selection and design requirements for a t-for-purpose and suitably redundant mission critical Data Centre.
  • Conduct technical level design reviews for a given set of preliminary design documents and perform a technical compliance audit of a set of nal design development documents compliant to TIA standards.
  • Understand how to read electrical Single Line Diagrams (SLE) and other related design documents, and be able to detect the  most common design mistakes.Evaluate product datasheets and discriminate among technical speci cations and functional requirements forsuitability against a set of given design requirements for a given site and business case.
  • Correlate equipment speci cations to site design constraints, such as room size and space, oor loading capacity, cooling  capacity, power quality conditions and maintenance requirements while ensuring equipment selection does not compromise  desired tier level compliance.
  • Develop Individual Equipment Test (IET) and Integrated Performance and Validation Test (IPVT) plans for a mission critical   Data Centre.
  • Develop guidelines and checklists for hand-over of a mission critical Data Centre facility, its architectural, mechanical,   electrical, IT elements and documentation.
  • Develop retirement plans for decommissioning and hand-over of an aged mission critical Data Centre facility.
