DC102: Applied Data Center Design and Best Practices Virtual Training

Course Description
BICSI's DC102: Applied Data Center Design and Best Practices course is a five-day course that provides an in-depth review of best practices for designing data centers. In this course you will be introduced to various data center infrastructure systems. In addition, you will have an opportunity to apply what you have learned by engaging in case studies, discussions, and real-world scenarios, as well as gain practical application in ICT data center design best practices. After completing this course, you should be able to design a data center based on a set of given requirements; this will include both new and retrofit designs.

In addition to data center design, the course will also include life safety practices such as grounding and bonding to ensure that you can account for these issues when designing a data center. On the last day of the course, you will be able to evaluate your learning through a final project and a comprehensive course assessment.
