The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) has launched a new Education Express course, EE302: Centralized Intelligent Lighting Control.
Education Express provides in-depth education about lighting controls and controllable ballast technology, application, system design and commissioning.
Intelligent lighting controls represent the ultimate in lighting control. As energy codes and owner requirements become more complex, intelligent control solutions are becoming increasingly common in new construction while becoming more adaptable to existing construction. Intelligent lighting control is also ideally suited to LED lighting. Though solutions vary, a fully realized intelligent lighting control offers the benefits of addressable luminaires and/or groups of luminaires, layered and complex control strategies, software-based zoning and rezoning, elegant wired or wireless connections, and energy measurement and monitoring.
Authored by Steve Mesh, LC, this Education Express course describes the basic technology of centralized intelligent lighting control systems (Part 1) and then provides application guidance (Part 2).
At the conclusion of each part, an optional online comprehension test is available, with automatic grading; a passing grade enables the student to claim education credit. EE302 is accredited/registered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education System (CES), which recognizes 4.0 Learning Units (LU)/Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) credits; and the National Council on Quality in the Lighting Professions (NCQLP), which recognizes 4.0 LEUs towards maintenance of the Lighting Certified (LC) certification.
Founded in 2006, Education Express serves more than 25,000 students, who have benefited from more than 200,000 completions of learning modules and more than 130,000 comprehension tests taken online, enabling them to earn education credit.
