Help the data centre!

The EPI-CDCP (Certified Data Centre Professional) is a 2-day course designed to expose participants to the key components of the data centre.

CDCP training will address how to set up and improve key aspects such as power, cooling, security, cabling, safety etc. to ensure a high-available data centre. CDCP training will also address key operations and maintenance aspects.

CDCP is the first training in the EPI Design and Build training track under the EPI Data Centre Training Framework.
