North American Access Technologies, Inc.

Data Center Training and Professional Development


To meet the expanding data center industry demand for skilled mission critical professionals North American Access Technologies (NAAT) is authorized to provide

US Department of Energy Data Center Energy Practitioner (DCEP) training.


The Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) requires Federal agencies to develop and report on data center strategies to transition to a more efficient infrastructure. The Modernizing Government Technology Act also supports DCOI and DCEP Training.



Unlike other Data Center training offerings, the DCEP certificate is the only one issued under the US Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Management Program, in conjunction with a training program developed by Lawrence Berkley National Labs (LBNL).
