Certified Data Centre Design Professional (CDCDP)

I plan to start another certification after having the Schneider Electric Data Center Certified Associate Certification completed by Friday June 12th and the Schneider Electric Professional Energy Manager Certification completed by Friday June 26th. The Certified Data Centre Design Professional (CDCDP) track is one of the most prestigious certifications in the area of Data Center design. There are so many areas in reference to improvement and optimization of physical data center infrastructures. There are very few in the world that have the intimate knowledge of data center computing/storage/connectivity/software coupled with physical data center design. I have always worked in both of these core areas but I strongly believe that this is the next step in my professional development. The complete training track and certification is $5,750.00 and runs for 7 consecutive days. In co-location data centers, it’s all going to be about optimizing every physical component within a data center.  I strongly believe that this track/certification would go a long way in reference to next generation data center design aligning with LEED Certified Facilities.
