The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) is pleased to announce that EE205: Personal Lighting Control has been added to the Association’s popular online Education Express distance education courses.
Residing at the Association’s website, www.aboutlightingcontrols.org, Education Express provides in-depth education about lighting controls and controllable ballast technology, application, system design and commissioning, as well as meta-issues such as LEED, energy codes and other trends.
Personal lighting control, an emerging trend in office lighting, involves providing occupants with the ability to adjust their task light levels. Encouraged by LEED and considered a feature of high-performance buildings, personal lighting control has been demonstrated repeatedly in research to increase office worker job and environmental satisfaction while producing energy savings.
EE205: Personal Lighting Control, authored by lighting industry educator and journalist Craig DiLouie, presents the case for personal control, focusing on personal dimming control in workstations and private offices, including methods, general application guidelines and lessons learned from personal control research.
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. EE205: Personal Lighting Control is accredited/registered with the National Council on Quality in the Lighting Professions (NCQLP), which recognizes 2.0 LEUs towards maintenance of Lighting Certified (LC) certification.
Since its launch in June 2006, Education Express has served more than 6,200 students, who have benefited from more than 23,500 completions of course modules and some 9,000 comprehension tests taken online, enabling them to earn education credit.
