CPI has continuing education credit (CEC) courses that have been approved by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). These courses are presented by our highly-trained and experienced employees working throughout the company. Many of our employees hold various industry certifications and participate on advisory boards and technical committees.
Here are the course descriptions:
Benefits for Data Center Advanced Airflow Management - 1 credit
This course defines advanced airflow
management and clarifies the difference between comfort cooling and data center
cooling. This course will explain the benefits of advanced airflow management
through examples from computational fluid dynamics, case studies and basic
physics. Attendees will get direction on implementation and metrics for
Economics of Airflow Management (Advanced) - 2 credits
This course provides tools for translating the efficiency gains from good airflow management practices into bottom-line numbers that can be used for cost justifying data center improvement projects and making intelligent decisions between competing design options.
Implications of ASHRAE Guidelines on Data Center Design - 2 credits
This course answers the question: How do I go about determining the data center design and associated operating temperature that will give me the lowest total cost of ownership and meet my ICT equipment reliability requirements? The course draws heavily on ASHRAE and computer equipment manufacturers’ research findings.
Operational Benefits of Data Center Airflow Containment - 1 credit
This course relies heavily on computational fluid dynamics to illustrate the importance of getting free from comfort cooling approaches to data center cooling, and then provides a data-driven review of results achievable through good airflow containment.
How to Use ASHRAE Environmental Guidelines to Determine Optimum Temperature for your Data Center - 3 credits
A half-day course drawing on industry research, best practices and equipment performance specifications to delineate a methodology for determining the optimum data center temperature for producing the lowest total cost of ownership and acceptable equipment reliability predictions for new designs, major retrofits and efficiency improvement projects.
