Data Center Energy Practitioner Certification Class
CFS 2019 features a Data Center Energy Practitioner (DCEP) Generalist Certification Class on Monday September 23 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. Don’t miss this opportunity to gain a high-level view of different IT and support systems, evaluate data center energy use and make detailed recommendations to improve data center efficiency.
The DCEP certification program is the only one of its kind issued under the U.S. Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Management Program in conjunction with Lawrence Berkley National Labs (LBNL). The class will be taught by Julius Neudorfer, industry expert and CTO of North American Access Technologies.
As a DCEP, you will
- Be qualified to identify and evaluate energy efficiency opportunities in data centers
- Demonstrate proficiency in the use of the Data Center Profiler (DC Pro) and select Assessment Tools
- Address energy opportunities in electrical systems, air management, HVAC, and IT equipment
- Receive training on conducting data center assessments
For data center professionals in federal facilities, DCEP supports the 2016 Data Center Optimization Initiative (OMB, Memorandum M-16-19) which requires federal agencies to develop and report on data center strategies to consolidate inefficient infrastructure, optimize existing facilities, improve security posture, achieve cost savings, and transition to more efficient infrastructure. The same memorandum states that all tiered federal data centers should have at least one certified DCEP assigned to manage data center performance and continued optimization.
Whatever your role in the data center, the DCEP is a valuable certification that can add value to your facility, your organization’s bottom line and your career.

The cost for the 1-day course and credential exam is $1,175.00 and includes a full-conference registration to the 2019 Critical Facilities Summit on September 24-25, a $495 value.
