IES Edmonton - Fundamentals of Lighting Course Planned for Autumn 2023

IES Edmonton would like to update you on the latest plans for hosting a Fundamentals of Lighting class for the Northern Alberta IES section.

IES Edmonton is excited to announce that the Edmonton/Northern Alberta section will be offering an in-person Fundamentals of Lighting course this coming Autumn 2023, so we ask you to “Save the date!” and pass the message along to those who might be interested.

The feasibility for Online/Remote access for those who cannot attend the class in-person is also being discussed, and confirmation of whether or not we can offer this option will be announced when known.

A detailed announcement with exact dates, times, venue, cost, and other information will be sent out at the beginning of September.

Thank you,
IES Edmonton Board of Managers
