BICSI this week introduced the Data Center Design Consultant (DCDC) credential at the 2011 Fall Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas, Nev., which recognizes those individuals who have demonstrated both the knowledge and ability to apply it over the multiple facets within data centre design.

Data centre, IT, facility or project managers, architects, engineers, designers, consultants and those planning to enter careers in the data centre design, construction or maintenance fields can sit the DCDC examination.

“Due to the push for greater capacity, increased efficiency and higher levels of utilization, data centres have become more complex to design and bring online,” BICSI said in a release.

“Today’s data centre 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 centre, such as reliability, security and building requirements.”
