WattStopper has launched eCampus, a comprehensive and interactive online training site designed to make learning about lighting controls enjoyable and rewarding. Specifically designed for all influencers, including electrical contractors, distributors, ESCOs, and specifiers, the courses cover control applications in residential, commercial, and industrial settings. The free site features two offerings: eWards, where participants earn points redeemable for merchandise from the companion storefront, and eCredited, which offers AIA- and NCQLP-approved courses for professionals interested in continuing education credits.
eWards courses provide an interactive and engaging overview of a wide range of lighting controls topics as well as specific WattStopper products. Typical courses can be completed in five minutes and include written or multimedia content delivered in a user-friendly style. Students earn rewards by completing a brief quiz that provides immediate feedback to answer selection as well as the ability to revise answers in real time and without penalty. Reward points are redeemable at the eWards storefront. The site maintains password-protected records of user visits, reward point balances, and courses completed.
eCredited courses are approved by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP) and are recognized by many other organizations that accept AIA or NCQLP credits for continuing education. In addition, AIA members enjoy automatic reporting of credits. Current course selections include energy codes (California Title 24, ASHRAE Standard 90.1, and IECC) and daylighting, with future additions forthcoming.
To enroll in either eWards or eCredited courses, users visit www.wattstopper.com and click on the eCampus link. Users may obtain complimentary eCampus registration codes, along with a promotional code that provides bonus reward points, from local WattStopper representatives.
In addition to eCampus, WattStopper provides training at company training centers in Santa Clara, California and Birmingham, Alabama, as well as field training by LEED Accredited Professionals.
