Accredited Tier Designer Eligibility

The Uptime Institute Accredited Tier Designer curriculum is intended for licensed Professional Engineers with a design management role for data centers and similar technology projects. The program provides the multiple-disciplinary concepts necessary to achieve project design objectives based on the Uptime Institute Tier Standards criteria. The curriculum crosses traditional engineering-discipline boundaries, thus will suit design professionals who are responsible for project delivery.

Individuals who will directly benefit from the Accredited Tier Designer program are:

  • Engineers-of-Record
  • Design-Build Team Senior Project Managers
  • Project Owners’ Senior Engineering Representative
Successful completion of the Institute Accredited Tier Designer program, demonstrated through examination at the end of the course, will result in an Uptime Institute endorsement of the individual as an Accredited Tier Designer.

Accredited Tier Designer represents neither license nor permission to deliver a) Tier Certifications of designs, b) Tier Certifications of constructed environments, or c) Operational Sustainability ratings or Certifications.
