Residing at the Association’s website, www.aboutlightingcontrols.org, Education Express provides in-depth education about lighting controls and controllable ballast technology, application, system design and commissioning, as well as meta-issues such as LEED, energy codes and other trends.
Automatic shutoff is required by most commercial energy codes, and load scheduling—also called time sweep control—is a popular compliance method. EE102: Switching Controls, Section 2, authored by lighting industry educator and journalist Craig DiLouie, describes load scheduling strategies, technology and the basics of designing a load scheduling control system.
At the conclusion of the course, an optional online comprehension test is available, with automatic grading; a passing grade enables the student to claim education credit. EE102: Switching Controls, Section 2: Load Scheduling Control is accredited/registered with the National Council on Quality in the Lighting Professions (NCQLP), which recognizes 4.5 LEUs towards maintenance of Lighting Certified (LC) certification; the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE), which recognizes 0.45 CEUs towards maintenance of its Certified Lighting Efficiency Professional (CLEP) certification; and the interNational Association of Lighting Management Companies (NALMCO), which recognizes 30 Education Points towards maintenance of its Certified Lighting Management Consultant (CLMC) certification.
