Manguard Plus congratulate our two new Certified Data Centre Professionals (CDCP®)

Huge congratulations to our Operations Manager, John O’Brien and Contracts Manager, Joe Farrell on successfully completing the coveted Certified Data Centre Professional (CDCP®) course recently which was hosted by EPI in the New Horizon Facility.

The CDCP® course is designed to expose participants to the critical components of the data centre. CDCP® training will address how to set up and improve the critical aspects of a high-available data centre. CDCP® training also addresses vital operations and maintenance aspects. The course syllabus covers data centre specific operations, including:

  • Data Centre Standards and Best Practices
  • Data Centre Location, Building and Construction
  • Power Infrastructure
  • Electro Magnetic Fields
  • Cooling Infrastructure
  • Designing a Scalable Network Infrastructure
  • Fire Protection
  • Physical Security and Safety
  • Auxiliary Systems
  • Operational Considerations

Although the primary audience for the CDCP® course is an IT, Facilities or Data Centre Operations professional working in and around the data centre and having the responsibility to achieve and improve performance and manageability of data centres, Manguard Plus deemed it imperative that the senior managers of our data centre portfolio were also accredited to this global standard.

John O’Brien, Operations Manager, commented after the course thatthe CDCP® course has provided me with global recognition and certification of my new competences in all aspects of the data centre building and facility components for the design, build and operations of a high availability data centre.  With these new competences to review an existing data centre design and suggest improvements, I can now provide added value to our clients within our data centre portfolio as well as our own world-class Command & Control Centre in Naas”.
