The Certified Data Center Sustainability Professional (CDCSP®) program teaches how to create and implement a sustainability strategy for mission critical facilities.  The comprehensive program provides in-depth knowledge into the steps required to evaluate, analyze, plan, implement, and monitor a sustainability strategy, balanced with operational capability for data center facilities. The updated and reviewed five-day CDCSP program dates have been announced and are scheduled in the U.K. and the U.S. It’s an Instructor-led, remote attendance program, delivering live and fully interactive classroom learning.

Increased awareness of the urgency to implement and maintain a sustainable future coupled with evolving legislation means that data center operators are under great pressure to embrace sustainability strategies and improve their “green” credentials rapidly and be able to evidence improvement to stakeholders. The program also teaches how to plan for transformation toward a credible sustainability lifecycle that demonstrates innovation and challenges business ethos while being sensitive to business risk and continuity. 

On completion of the program, learners will also be able to consider the requirements for compliance and have a full understanding of national and international regulations, codes, and standards. 

Successful completion of the CDCSP program also provides the learner with a Level 5 BTEC Award, official CDCSP certification, use of a post nominal title, and a digital badge. The digital badge can be easily shared via social media and can also be downloaded to verify knowledge, skills, and certifications gained, adding valuable credibility to professional profiles. 

The program forms part of the globally renowned Digital Infrastructure Education Framework which maps technical education programs, official certifications, and internationally recognized qualifications to knowledge and career progression routes throughout the industry, providing designations that have become key skills reference points that allow those holding them to demonstrate their ability and experience clearly. 

“With the increased urgency to implement and maintain a sustainable future, we wanted to ensure the CDCSP program is compact but comprehensive and accessible for data center professionals who are responsible for sustainability within their facility,” said Andrew Stevens, CEO at CNet Training. “The new five-day program provides the in-depth knowledge and skills to create and implement a long-term sustainability strategy within mission critical facilities. More essentially, it also provides the knowledge for individuals, and, therefore, businesses to champion a sustainability legacy that can enhance competitive advantage, customer perception, and reputation.”

The first five-day CDCSP Remote Attendance program starts April 27, with further dates set throughout 2020.
