Lighting controls offer the opportunity to balance the visual environment, enhance space flexibility, and improve user satisfaction while saving significant amounts of energy, and improving maintenance cycles.  Designing and implementing high quality control systems can also help to differentiate contractors and designers in a competitive marketplace. 

Wide scale adoption of well-designed and implemented controls systems has been slowed by perceived complexity, cost, and concerns about call backs. In this two-part online class, you will learn industry best practices and strategies that may be applied to a wide range of projects.

Part one of this comprehensive online class will introduce you to modern lighting control strategies and equipment. Part two will offer guidance on successful implementation and programming approaches for these systems. System concepts, design, installation, sequence of operations, and startup will all be discussed over the course of the class.

Who Should Attend

This workshop is suitable for utility trade allies as well as lighting practitioners including designers, contractors, building operators, architects, engineers, and sales reps.

Some working knowledge of the lighting and construction industries will be necessary to gain the most value from this workshop.
