Datacenter Forum and EPI Partner to Offer World-Class Data Centre Training

Datacenter Forum partners with EPI, the world leader in data centre professional training and certification, to bring the world renowned CDCP (Certified Data Centre Professional) class to Scandinavia at their Stockholm event this month.

CDCP is the leading and globally recognised course and certification program for data centre professionals. It is a 2-day course designed to expose participants to all the key components of the data centre facility. It addresses how to setup and improve key aspects such as power, cooling, security, cabling, safety and much more. The CDCP training also addresses key operations and maintenance aspects.  The CDCP course and certification are externally accredited by EXIN, a fully independent global accreditation and examination body fully focused on the ICT and data centre industry thereby ensuring quality and impartiality.   

According to Edward van Leent, Chairman & CEO of EPI Group of Companies, “This is a very exciting time for the data centre industry.  New trends such as Cloud and IoT are rapidly changing the data centre landscape, creating huge demand for globally connected hyperscale data centres and aggregation of smaller data centres to support these.  This globalisation phenomenon has intensified the competitive landscape for data centre and data centre professionals to the global level.  Both data centres and data centre professionals have to quickly adjust to win business and secure the best jobs.  Industry certifications such as the CDCP has become a clear differentiator in this global playing field.  We are very pleased to be working with Datacenter Forum being the most established and recognised platform for data centre education in the Nordics and Baltics.” 

According to Fredrik Lindahl, Manager Nordic Markets at Datacenter Forum, “Global benchmarking for data centre professionals is a key component not yet very well addressed in Scandinavia. We noticed that more than ever, companies are seeking validation for the data centre professionals they employ, and seek to employ, by means of independent training and certification. The largest pool of data centre professionals from all over the world have been trained and awarded the CDCP credentials including many from the leading data centre service providers and Fortune 500 companies.  The data centre professionals in this region need to catch up and do so quickly.  We are very pleased to partner EPI and offer their world-class CDCP at our event.”
