The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) has published a new course to enhance its popular Education Express program: EE107: Lighting Controls for Existing Buildings.
Residing at the Association’s website at LightingControlsAssociation.org, Education Express provides in-depth education about lighting controls and controllable ballast technology, application, system design and commissioning.
Upgrading lighting systems to next-generation lighting technologies can deliver significant energy cost savings while maintaining or improving lighting quality. By incorporating lighting controls into a lighting upgrade, building owners can generate additional average energy savings of 24-38%, maximize the value of the upgrade investment in labor, and convert lighting into a managed building asset.
EE107: Lighting Controls for Existing Buildings introduces students to lighting control strategies suitable for existing buildings. Authored by Craig DiLouie, LC, it outlines energy code obligations, identifies rebate opportunities, and provides application guidance.
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. EE107: Lighting Controls for Existing Buildings is accredited/registered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education System (CES), which recognizes 2.0 Learning Units (LU)/Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) credits; and the National Council on Quality in the Lighting Professions (NCQLP), which recognizes 2.0 LEUs towards maintenance of the Lighting Certified (LC) certification.
Founded in 2006, Education Express serves more than nearly 24,000 students, who have benefited from nearly 200,000 completions of learning modules and more than 130,000 comprehension tests taken online, enabling them to earn education credit.
