LCA Provides Education on Wireless Lighting Controls, Re-Releases Commissioning Course

The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) now offers EE301: Wireless Lighting Controls. LCA also has re-released EE110: Commissioning and Lighting Controls. Both are courses offered in its Education Express program.

Lighting control systems provide benefits such as energy savings, flexibility, and analytics, but installing controls in existing buildings has been inhibited by constraints on installing control wiring. Wireless lighting controls send and receive signals through the air, eliminating the need for dedicated wiring. The result is the potential to install lighting controls in both new and existing construction. EE301: Wireless Lighting Controls, authored by Steve Mesh, LC, provides a view of this technology, including benefits; equipment; protocols; and application information.

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 the NALMCO Certified Lighting Controls Professional (CLCP) certification exam.

Commissioning is a quality assurance process to ensure building systems are designed, installed, and operate in accordance with owner requirements, manufacturers’ instructions, and the design intent. Authored by Craig DiLouie, CLCP, LC, the EE110: Commissioning and Lighting Controls course provides an overview of the commissioning process, benefits of commissioning, and applicable commercial building energy code requirements. It then provides guidance for commissioning, including functional testing of installed equipment.

The commissioning course is registered with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education System (CES) for Learning Units (LU)/Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) credits; National Lighting Contractors of America (NLCAA) points as preparation for its path to California Acceptance Test Technician certification; and the National Council on Quality in the Lighting Professions (NCQLP) for Lighting Education Units (LEUs). It is also required reading to prepare for the NALMCO Certified Lighting Controls Professional (CLCP) certification exam.

Residing at the LCA website, Education Express provides education about lighting controls and controllable ballast technology, application, system design and commissioning.

Founded in 2006, Education Express serves more than 32,000 students, who have benefited from more than 270,000 completions of learning modules and 190,000 comprehension tests taken online, enabling them to earn education credit.
