Learn how to create an energy efficiency plan for your data centre. Includes creation, implementation, analysis and formulating recommendations with the ultimate objective of reducing energy use and cutting carbon emissions.

The Certified Data Centre Energy Professional (CDCEP®) program considers the global focus on how energy prices and environmental protection is driving the need to reduce energy wastage through greater efficiency. It is of utmost importance and an issue that continues to be foremost in the minds of those operating data centre facilities.

The five-day program teaches expertise in energy efficiency and provides the tools to make a significant contribution to the energy strategy and effectively deal with, and manage, energy related issues and deliver efficiencies.

Strategically plan, design and implement an energy plan for data centre facilities, focusing on energy efficiency. Learners will be introduced to current energy profiler tools and models to analyse site data and formulate a comprehensive action plan to implement real energy savings potential and capacity reclamation.

The use and distribution of power will be explored considering server and IT equipment, and how usage can quickly spiral out of control when it is not being measured, monitored and maintained correctly. In addition, the use of redundant and back-up power infrastructure will be analysed considering the power utilisation for air-conditioning, fire suppression, security, alarms and other supporting systems.

A certified CDCEP® also considers the requirements for compliance, having a full understanding of national and international regulations, codes, standards and the US DoE Data Centre Energy Practitioner (DCEP). During the program, learners will be provided a valuable opportunity to access the latest industry standards.

Following this program, you are encouraged to continue your professional development by advancing your knowledge and skills to gain further official certifications and qualifications by progressing through The Global Digital Infrastructure Education Framework which maps education programs to career advancement throughout the network infrastructure and data centre sectors.

Experience of working within a data centre environment is essential; preferably with two years experience in a technical IT or facilities role. If you would like to discuss your experience or suitability for this program please contact us.

Gain an unrivalled knowledge and forwardthinking approach to energy provision. Become an expert in the analysis of energy usage, identify opportunities for efficiencies, structure and implement a detailed energy efficiency plan.
