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 Certified Data Centre Specialist is a three-day course designed to bring participants to the level of a suitable sparring partner with suppliers. They will be able to verify offers provided by vendors for correctness, effectiveness, and efficiency. CDCS® is a must-have certification for professional data centre managers and personnel. CDCS® is a pre-requisite for individuals wishing to achieve the elite CDCE® (Certified Data Centre Expert) status.
