As an integral part of its expanded Tier Program, the Uptime Institute is pleased to announce the Accredited Tier Designer curriculum. This course is developed, delivered, and maintained by Uptime Institute Professional Services. This curriculum represents the Uptime Institute’s first education initiative with a detailed, engineering focus. This curriculum is distinct from its Site Uptime Seminar Series, which approach Tiers and other data center issues from a management perspective. This course will provide instruction to design professionals, in the context of real-life designs, on practical application of the Tiers, including common issues and misconceptions.
