The Lighting Controls Association’s Education Express, the online platform for free, instant, 24/7 education about lighting controls, now offers for a majority of courses downloadable one-page summary sheets students can download, print, and use as a quick reference.
Authored by Craig DiLouie, LC, CLCP, IES; Steve Mesh, LC; C. Webster Marsh; and Kevin Willmorth, PE, Education Express courses offer more than 50 hours of learning and education credit. Each course is registered with the AIA Continuing Education System (CES) for Learning Units (LU)/Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) credits, and recognized by NCQLP for Lighting Education Units (LEUs). All courses are required reading to prepare for NALMCO’s Certified Lighting Controls Professional (CLCP) certification exam.
Several courses are prerequisites for CALCTP and NALCTP training and certification, and several are prerequisites for NLCAA certification as an Acceptance Testing Technician in California. Further, Education Express is used by the California Community College System to train the next generation of electrical workers in the state, and LCA is recognized as a continuing education provider by California for electrical workers maintaining certification through education.
In 2019-20, LCA implemented the ability for students who successfully complete all courses to print a Certificate of Technical Knowledge in Lighting Control. LCA also made all courses downloadable as PDF files for offline reading and printing. Now a majority of courses feature a downloadable one-page sheet providing a summary of key information in each course, which students can use as a field reference.
Registration takes about a minute and provides access to a wealth of learning about an important feature of high-performing buildings.
