The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) now offers EE115: Integration and Building Automation as a new course in its popular Education Express program.
Today’s lighting control systems work alongside and may need to communicate with many other systems such as audio/visual (A/V), mechanical air handling (HVAC), life/safety, or computer networking (ITS). When the majority of systems in a building communicate with and trigger each other, this is referred to as a building automation system (BAS), which can present intricate designs and require careful integration and coordination of design disciplines.
Authored by C. Webster Marsh, HLB Lighting Design, EE115: Integration and Building Automation defines today’s integration, how BAS are designed, and considerations for specifying integration and a BAS.
This course is registered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education System (CES) for Learning Units (LU)/Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) credits, and the National Council on Quality in the Lighting Professions (NCQLP) for Lighting Education Units (LEUs). It is also required reading to prepare for NALMCO’s Certified Lighting Controls Professional (CLCP) certification exam.
