Course Description

Today's institutions of higher learning are facing cost pressures and are being called upon to demonstrate leadership in energy usage and environmental impact while reducing resources dedicated to lighting maintenance. At the same time, the need to maintain attractive looking and functional facilities and to ensure safety and security on the campus require the exploration of the latest technology options, including LED systems and lighting controls. This course will address lighting solutions, based on the latest IES (Illuminating Engineering Society) recommendations, for classrooms, laboratories, corridors and lobbies, gymnasiums, dormitories, and back-of-house facilities, and outdoor lighting for safety and security. Comparisons of LED systems vs. non-LED systems will be discussed. Participants will use software to analyze economic and environmental benefits of lighting upgrades. Industry guest speakers will share best practices.
