AIA-Approved Courses

CPI has continuing education credit (CEC) courses that have been approved by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). These courses are presented by our highly-trained and experienced employees working throughout the company. Many of our employees hold various industry certifications and participate on advisory boards and technical committees.

Here are the course descriptions:

Energy Efficiency in Data Centers: The Importance of Airflow Management and Monitoring - 1.5 credits

This course reviews the data center's impact on building design and then identifies and describes the most effective design approaches and fitments that building designers can employ to control their capital and operating costs, spatial needs, and energy consumption. Data centers are consuming up to 200X the energy of comparably sized office space, and are rapidly evolving in numbers, size, location, and energy demands. These facilities are frequently becoming integrated into other buildings and the purview of the architect.

Benefits for Data Center Advanced Airflow Management - 1 credit

This course defines advanced airflow management and clarifies the difference between comfort cooling and data center cooling. This course will explain the benefits of advanced airflow management through examples from computational fluid dynamics, case studies and basic physics. Attendees will get direction on implementation and metrics for success.

Economics of Airflow Management (Advanced) - 2 credits

This course provides tools for translating the efficiency gains from good airflow management practices into bottom-line numbers that can be used for cost justifying data center improvement projects and making intelligent decisions between competing design options.

Implications of ASHRAE Guidelines on Data Center Design - 2 credits

This course answers the question: How do I go about determining the data center design and associated operating temperature that will give me the lowest total cost of ownership and meet my ICT equipment reliability requirements? The course draws heavily on ASHRAE and computer equipment manufacturers’ research findings.

Operational Benefits of Data Center Airflow Containment - 1 credit

This course relies heavily on computational fluid dynamics to illustrate the importance of getting free from comfort cooling approaches to data center cooling, and then provides a data-driven review of results achievable through good airflow containment.

How to Use ASHRAE Environmental Guidelines to Determine Optimum Temperature for your Data Center - 3 credits

A half-day course drawing on industry research, best practices and equipment performance specifications to delineate a methodology for determining the optimum data center temperature for producing the lowest total cost of ownership and acceptable equipment reliability predictions for new designs, major retrofits and efficiency improvement projects.
