Course Description

Overview

CDCE is the premier certification for data center professionals in the data center design/build and related fields. This 5-day course is designed to prepare participants to analyse a given business case and perform technical evaluation for a project plan and a set of designs for implementation of a mission critical data center. The course also engages participants 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 center project design experts.

CDCE is the highest level training in the EPI Design and Build training track under the EPI Data Center Training Framework. Participants must hold a valid CDCS certificate in order to be able to register for the CDCE class.


 

Objectives

  • Choose an optimum site for mission-critical data centers based on current and future needs.
  • Describe all components important for high-availability in a data center and how to effectively setup the data center.
  • Understand the design lifecycle stages for data center build projects and the phases involved in project execution.
  • Analyse a business case and develop a project brief that is aimed at fulfilling the business resilience, site selection and design requirements for a fit-for-purpose and suitably redundant mission-critical data center.
  • Conduct technical level design reviews for a given set of preliminary design documents and perform a technical compliance audit of a set of final design development documents compliant to TIA standards.
  • Understand how to read electrical Single Line Diagrams (SLD) and other related design documents, and be able to detect the most common design mistakes.
  • Evaluate product datasheets and discriminate amongst technical specifications and functional requirements for suitability against a set of given design requirements for a given site and business case.
  • Correlate equipment specifications to site design constraints, such as room size and space, floor 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 Validation Test (IPVT) plans for a mission-critical data center.
  • Develop guidelines and checklists for handover of a mission-critical data center facility, its architectural, mechanical, electrical, IT elements and documentation.
  • Develop retirement plans for decommissioning and handover of an aged mission-critical data center facility.

 

Audience

The primary audience for this course is any IT, facilities or data center professional, who are involved in the design/build, renovation or relocation of a mission-critical data center.
