The TSI.PROFESSIONAL data center training teaches all necessary information regarding the evaluation and certification of data centers' physical security and availability according to Trusted Site Infrastructure (TSI) in context of the EN 50600.
Trusted Site Infrastructure (TSI) is a proven method for the assessment and certification of the physical security and availability of data centers established in 2002.
In our TSI.PROFESSIONAL data center training the linked requirements and processes are presented in detail and the training participants gain deeper insights into the current TSI criteria catalogs TSI.STANDARD and TSI.EN50600.
Participants will receive a good overview of the structure, application and differences between the TSI.STANDARD and the TSI.EN50600. Our trainers will respond to each participant’s questions individually.
The training shall enable the participants to
- understand the TSI methods,
- interpret properly the TSI evaluation and certification scheme,
- apply the criteria catalogs in practice and
- align the design in a compliant manner.
The participants can complete the training with an optional examination and if they fulfill certain defined requirements will gain a TSI.PROFESSIONAL status.
The training program is directed at data center designers, data center advisors, general contractors as well as architects dealing with the design and construction of high available data centers.
However, the training can also be used by operators and users of mission critical infrastructures as an educational measure or for comprehending design concepts of third parties.

We offer to conduct the TSI.PROFESSIONAL data center training at your corporate headquarters or at a defined appointment. If the training is supposed to be conducted exclusively with many participants of a company, then the execution and organization is conducted by TÜViT. This becomes pricewise more attractive if more than 3 persons are participating in the training.
If there are less than 3 participants than we advise to take part in our centralized training, which is offered by the Dutch Data Center Association (DDA). The participation at our centralized training enables you the exchange with other participants and experts in the data center environment.
