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,

  • application for the optional exam
  • participation in the TSI.PROFESSIONAL training
  • at least three years of relevant professional experience within a data center environment (as a data center planner, data center advisor, data center operator or similar); a résumé (with respective proof of qualification and/or experience) must be submitted

The status will be valid for 24 months and can be extended by another 24 months by participating in a one-day TSI.UPDATE training.


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.
