The CDCS® Certification is a three-day advance level for training data center design/build professionals. The CDCS® course will cover engineering calculations on the various components in a data center facility. CDCS® will further increase attendees' competencies to a level of a compatible sparring partner with suppliers. They will be able to verify offers provided by vendors for correctness, effectiveness, and efficiency.
