Written by Wed 15 Apr 2020

Critical infrastructure giant introduces free 8-week webinar series for contractors, building service and consulting engineers 

Vertiv is bringing its CIBSE-approved continuing professional development (CPD) seminars online for contractors, building service and consulting engineers.

The free seminars will focus on popular critical power and thermal management topics. Online or on-demand attendance contributes to CIBSE CPD requirements and attendees will receive a CIBSE-qualified CPD certificate.

Vertiv has delivered the seminars for years, typically in a lunch & learn format, at participant premises — a format currently infeasible due to stay-at-home measures.

The 45-minute webinars (more details below) will stream every Thursday from 16 April, through 4 June at 10:00 AM BST, with a Q&A session at the end for attendees to pitch questions to experts.

“We’re inviting contractors, building service and consulting engineers across the UK to our new webcast series designed to deepen their knowledge of critical power, thermal technologies and data centre applications,” said Vertiv in a press release.

All the details can be found here and the planned line-up is as follows:

  • Thursday, April 16 – Addressing Data Centre Operational Challenges through Thermal Management Technologies
  • Thursday, April 23 – Earthing and Neutral Considerations
  • Thursday, April 30 – Chilled Water – systems and data centre optimisation, intelligent platforms for optimum system control and tiers of availability in hydraulic systems
  • Thursday, May 07 – Battery Technology and Design Considerations
  • Thursday, May 14 – Direct Expansion – solutions and free cooling options
  • Thursday, May 21- UPS Fundamentals – the history, basics, efficiency, installation requirements and batteries
  • Thursday, May 28 – Adiabatic and Evaporative Cooling – basics of psychometric and solutions for data centre applications
  • Thursday, June 04 – Generator Sizing and Installation Requirements – planning your installation

“Vertiv experts have been travelling across the UK and Ireland for many years delivering CIBSE accredited CPDs to consulting engineers and contractors. To keep our network up to date with the latest technical power and thermal training, we wanted to offer our CPDs as webcasts until we can get back on the road again and deliver them in-person at your offices.” says Alex Brew, UK and Ireland sales director at Vertiv.

Participation is free and you can register here. Those who can’t attend the dates can register to access webinar recordings on-demand.
