Certified Data Centre Specialist (CDCS®)

CDCS er det videregående kursus for Data Centre Professionals, og på dette 3-dages kursus vil du få øget dine kompetencer, så du bliver en værdifuld sparringspartner for leverandører og bliver i stand til at kontrollere om leverandørtilbud er korrekte og formålstjenlige. Kurset afsluttes med en international eksamen i Certified Data Centre Specialist (CDCS). Kurset afholdes på engelsk.

CDCS er det andet kursus inden for EPI Design and Build kursusforløbene under EPI Data Centre Training Framework. Du skal have bestået CDCP certificeringen for at kunne deltage på dette kursus.

Virtuelt kursus

Dette kursus afholdes pt. kun virtuelt pga. COVID-19. Du deltager på det virtuelle kursus med live underviser sammen med kursister fra hele verden via din egen PC. Eksamen kan tages online og skal være taget inden for 7 dage efter kurset. Du vil modtage en eksamensvoucher.
