ASHRAE-based Curriculum

DCProfessional Development is delighted to announce that we are working in partnership with ASHRAE to develop a series of online courses based on ASHRAE TC9.9 materials. The first online course, Thermal Guidelines, Power Trends and Cooling Applications for Data Processing Environments, launches April 2013.

The first online course, Thermal Guidelines, Power Trends and Cooling Applications for Data Processing Environments, launches soon.

Since 2003, ASHRAE’s Technical Commitee 9.9 has been helping the data center industry better understand the technical challenges it faces, publishing numerous guide books that look at best practice for the datacom environment. The committee is comprised of a wide range of industry representatives including equipment manufacturers, consulting engineers, data center operators, academia, testing laboratories, and government – all of whom are committed to increasing and sharing the body of knowledge related to data centers.

Thermal Guidelines for Data Processing Environments was the first publication of TC9.9 and forms the foundation of the premiere course. The forthcoming modules extend across the TC9.9 series and provide the learner with a broad spectrum of knowledge in an accessible online format.

As is the case with our Foundations of Mission Critical Infrastructure online courses, the ASHRAE-based online courses are SCORM-compliant and include access to the digital library and discussion forums.
