What is this?
The Data Center Design Consultants (DCDC) certification demonstrates knowledge in all facets of data center design. Due to the push for greater capacity, increased efficiency and higher levels of utilization, data centers have become more complex to design and bring online, and data center designers are often required to possess knowledge in mechanical, electrical and telecommunications systems, as well as being familiar with the other needs of a data center, such as reliability, security and building requirements.
Who is this for?
Candidates for the DCDC designation are individuals involved in the planning, implementing and making of critical decisions regarding data centers. To sit for the DCDC credential examination, you must have:
A minimum of two years of approved and verifiable experience in the design and/or construction of data centers. Experience must be within the last six years. The DCDC credential is valid for three years. Within each three-year period, all DCDCs must obtain a minimum of 24 BICSI continuing education credit (CEC) hours. The DCDC registration must be renewed every three years. The DCDC exam is based on content found in BICSI 002-2014 Data Center Design and Implementation Best Practices and the Network Systems and Commissioning (NSC) reference, 1st Edition.
The examination is administered in a computer-based testing (CBT) format at Pearson VUE Authorized Training Centers worldwide. Locations of testing centers can be found at www.pearsonvue.com
. The format of the test is 2 hours, 100 questions, closed-book and multiple choice.
What will this do for me?
DCDC was created to recognize those individuals who have demonstrated both the knowledge and ability to apply it over the multiple facets within data center design. Candidates for the DCDC designation are individuals involved in the planning, implementing and making of critical decisions regarding data centers. Data center, IT, facility or project managers, architects, engineers, designers, consultants and those planning to enter careers in the data center design, construction or maintenance fields would benefit from earning the DCDC credential.
