Certification-training courses for TIA-942 data center standard series under development

The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) recently announced it has entered into a licensing agreement with Enterprise Product Integration (EPI) that allows EPI to build and conduct international certified training courses for the ANSI/TIA-942 series Telecommunications Infrastructure Standards for Data Centers. The courses will initially be launched in Asia, TIA said, but will eventually become available to data center professionals worldwide.

“In a recent poll more than 75 percent of certified data center professionals said they refer to and use TIA-942 standards more than any other reference,” the TIA said when announcing its agreement with EPI. “Through its relationship with EPI, which offers worldwide accredited courses designed to improve organizations’ data center availability and manageability, TIA will address the high global demand for training for these standards.”

TIA’s president Grant Seiffert said, “The data center market is truly global, and good data center designs are universally applicable. TIA standards have played a significant role in growth of this market, which has expanded the availability, reliability and efficiency of data center and cloud services. EPI has a proven track record in delivering consistent, high-quality courses worldwide.”

EPI offers data center infrastructure services including data center consultancy, audit, certification and training.

EPI’s chairman and chief executive officer Edward van Leent commented, “We are extremely pleased with TIA’s decision to work with EPI as it builds and conducts the TIA-942 courses. We have been conducting compliance audits based on the ANSI/TIA-942 standard since it was released and many of our customers, designers and consultants have indicated that they want to understand the details of this global standard. We will initially release the Certified TIA-942 Design Consultant [CTDC] course aimed at consultants and data center designers, followed by the Certified TIA-942 Auditor [CTA] course. The courses and exams will be globally accredited and certified by EXIN [Examination International].”
