General information about this course

CDCS is a must have certication for professional data center managers and personnel. CDCS is a pre-requisite for individuals wishing to achieve the CDCE status.

Our Datacenter Certifications are worldwide accredited by EXIN. The training is conducted in collaboration with EPI Training. You can take the CDCS exam on a day by choosing yourself in our Vijfhart Examination Center in Nieuwegein. In preparation for the exam you should consider 8-12 hours preparation time.
