The Lighting Controls Association is pleased to announce that EE300: Lighting Control of LEDs, one of the Association’s popular online Education Express distance education courses, has been completely revised.
Residing here, Education Express provides in-depth education about lighting control and controllable ballast technology, application, system design and commissioning, as well as meta-issues such as commissioning, energy codes, daylight harvesting and other trends.
As solid-state lighting systems continue to proliferate, lighting control of LED devices becomes more important. This course provides a working understanding of control methods for LED lighting products and how to integrate these methods into modern lighting design.
EE300, authored by Kevin Willmorth and edited by Craig DiLouie, LC, describes LED control in four parts:
Part 1 offers an overview of LED drivers and power supplies, physical layers and protocols involved in lighting control, and the impact of control LED output, efficacy and life.
Part 2 describes LED color (including shades of white light), how controls impact color performance of LED products, and the most common methods used to control color.
Part 3 shows how single-color white light LED products can be controlled within conventional controls architectures.
Part 4 explores emerging wireless and advanced control protocols and architectures being deployed to enhance energy savings and system performance in modern solid-state and digital lighting applications.
An optional online comprehension test is available at the end of each of the course’s four learning modules, with automatic grading; a passing grade enables the student to claim education credit. EE300: Lighting Control of LEDs is registered with:
* Starting July 1, 2013: AIA Continuing Education System LU/HSW learning hours, with a passing grade of 80+% required to receive credit.
* The National Council on Quality in the Lighting Professions (NCQLP) Lighting Education Unit (LEU) credits towards maintenance of the NCQLP’s Lighting Certified (LC) certification, with a passing grade of 70+% required to receive credit.
Additionally, generic continuing education credits (CEUs) are also available (70+ passing grade).
If a student took EE300 before July 1, 2013, they had until that date to download any completion certificates. After that, the record was “wiped” and they are required to retake the course to earn education credit. The course’s four learning modules are accredited for a total of 8 learning hours:
Part 1: Introduction to LED Control, 2.0 LU/HSW, 2.0 LEU, 0.2 CEU
Part 2: Color Control of LEDs, 2.0 LU/HSW, 2.0 LEU, 0.2 CEU
Part 3: Control of White Light LEDs, 2.0 LU/HSW, 2.0 LEU, 0.2 CEU
Part 4: Emerging LED Control Technologies, 2.0 LU/HSW, 2.0 LEU, 0.2 CEU
