The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) has published EE302., Part 3: A Year with a Networked Lighting Control System, a new learning module in its popular Education Express online education program.
Authored by C. Webster Marsh of HLB Lighting Design, this learning module was designed to help building owners/managers and electrical industry consultants visualize networked lighting controls as tools that can be used to improve operations while also saving energy.
The learning module presents a fictional decisionmaker at a home, commercial building, multiple facilities, a large hotel, a hospital, and a city, identifying particular challenges. It then describes how an installed networked lighting control system provides opportunities and solutions with both energy and non-energy benefits throughout a typical year.
Part 3 follows two learning modules authored by Steve Mesh, which describe networked lighting control technology, typical systems, and how to apply them to a project.
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.
