Knowledge Transfer
Training today � for the Standards set by Tomorrow!
In August 2007 SCHNABEL AG founded the subsidiary SCHNABEL Academy GmbH which is based in Kaiserslautern, now called DCE Academy. Since April 2008 seminars and trainings give an insight into the complex world of Data Center planning. Because in our opinion, the better informed our clients are, the more effectively we can advise them!

A dynamic market demands dynamic impartation of knowledge. The coalescence of information, safety and communication technologies opens up new questions daily � the SCHNABEL Academy provides you with answers. With our totally unique new training concept, we don�t just accommodate for the fast movement of changes in our training courses and workshops � we remain one step ahead! The complex conceptual formulation of planning, maintenance and operation within a data processing center is mirrored in our Academy structure. Know-how and experience from over 30 years of international activity in the market are constantly being updated, divided into fields of knowledge and taught by experts using hands-on methods. Without exception, all of our instructors are internationally-active data processing center specialists, who are able to provide online knowledge from running projects for input in the training contents.

SCHNABEL AG is a member of the BICSI Data Center Standards Subcommittee and is chairing the Expert Working Group on Secure Data Centers of Germany�s BITKOM, the German IT and telecommunication association. Consequently following this approach SCHNABEL Academy is actively participating with senior engineers in standard committees like the BICSI Data Center Design Guide (release date Q2 2008) � a more detailed international standard that is based on the TIA -942.

Benefit from training your key employees on all critical aspects in the design and operation of Data Centers according to the latest industry standards. Continuous learning and training by SCHNABEL Academy is the best way to improve system availability and uptime!

Knowledge Modules for Everyone
Our target audience is not only the specialists, but anyone responsible for the planning, organisation and running of a company�s Data Center. And it�s by no means only major companies we�re talking about here: today, Data Centers can be found within all types of operation. The choice of training facilities, however, has not kept pace with this development. The title �Data Center engineer� is not a recognised profession, so �learning-by-doing� is the conventional method of acquiring knowledge. But this is no longer appropriate for a sector in which planning and security technology have become so highly sophisticated. Our newly founded academy hopes to redress this situation through its programme of seminars. The course block entitled �Critical factors for successful Data Center planning and design� provides an initial basic training. Without getting too technical, It provides an understanding of Data Center basics, such as legal requirements, structural aspects, security concepts, building services systems, organisation, as well as introducing the subject of the �green Data Center� and energy optimization.

The Real Experience
The Academy pursues an educational concept in which the transfer of knowledge is by no means all bone-dry theory � on the contrary: the subject matter is brought to life because it is taught by practising professionals from the industry. Many operators find it difficult to decide whether their Data Center is well planned, how high its availability levels are, or whether the time has come to outsource, rebuild or even migrate to another location. To meet these needs, SCHNABEL Academy�s vision is to provide high quality education and training facilities for everyone � giving them the tools which will enable them to make all these judgements � for a profitable result.

Service Portfolio
In addition to traditional seminars lasting one ort wo days depending on the complexity of the subject, we also offer in-house training courses. Our clients themselves decide on the topic, venue and date of the course. These training courses are bespoke solutions, tailored to meet the needs of the staff in question. A third string to our bow is the Data Center Design Best Practices course mentioned above. Upon successful completion of the three day course and exam, participants are awarded the qualification of Data Center Designer, which guarantees an internationally recognized standard of knowledge.
