Refresh & Re-certify
By obtaining the Data Center Practitioner credential, you have already demonstrated an active engagement with the sector, as well as a fundamental understanding of how, why and where data centers are being built - with a focus on the most important energy and sustainability considerations at the time.
Yet, in an industry as fast-paced as ours, 2 years is a very long time. The demand on digital infrastructure has skyrocketed in the last 24 months, with more financial investment flowing into the sector than ever before. However, while the pandemic and increasing digitalization has resulted in the need for increased productivity & output, the last 2 years has rightly seen more of a focus on issues pertaining to sustainability.
As such, our re-certification process will ensure you are up-to-date and engaged with the latest issues facing our industry. To re-certify, you must complete 8 hours of self-paced learning from our library of short, easily-digestable e-learning modules prior to your credential expiration date. Alternatively, you may choose to continue your professional development journey by completing a Specialist Credential: DCS Design Engineering or DCS Critical Operations. In this case, your DCP credential will renew upon completion of your second credential.
A New Approach to Recertification
Our approach to recertification is about giving you access to the latest and most relevant learning material to challenge and expand your knowledge, rather than asking you to resit the same exam that you passed to earn your credential. By recertifying your DCP credential, you will have access to our library of curated e-learning content designed to deepen your understanding on the most important innovations and trends in the industry.
After you have successfully completed the required hours for your recertification pathway, you will receive an updated digital badge and social certificate, and will remain credentialed for an additional 2 years. You can continue using the DCP logo and post-nominals on LinkedIn, email signatures, and your other professional correspondence to demonstrate your control of the fundamentals of data center design and energy efficiency.
