  • How Have LED’s Changed The Way We Work With Light?

    1 LU HSW

    This course will explore what makes LEDs unlike traditional light sources, specifically in regards to their micro optics, miniature size, light quality, precise controls, versatility and long lifespan. LEDs are in fact so different, the technology has opened up entirely new approaches to using light for architectural lighting, both inside and out. Take the course.

  • A New Approach to Lighting Controls: Low Voltage Course

    1 LU AIA/HSW/SD

    Today we are going to learn about a totally new approach to lighting controls that take full advantage of LEDs - a clean, green and efficient light source that is gaining traction quickly. The technology is based on using low voltage DC current to both power and control the LED fixtures. The result is a super-efficient system that saves more energy than traditional lighting controls, is more reliable and flexible, and provides a network of sensors that deliver additional value through smart building applications. This course is registered for 1 HSW/SD hour with AIA and for 1 GBCI CMP hour. Take the course.

  • How We Use Color Course

    1 LU AIA

    This course will review how the eye adapts to color and what affects certain light sources, colors and illumination levels have on the human eye. It will also look at why you should take these items into consideration in your overall design. This course will touch on color specification in order to achieve the desired affect for your project, and highlight the different controllable technologies available to help you achieve this affect. This course is registered for 1 AIA CEH. Take the course.

  • How We See Color Course

    1 LU AIA

    This course will describe how the human eye detects and identifies color and adapts to its surroundings and why this is important to consider with lighting design. This course will take a closer look at the complexity of the color process, while also defining and explaining key elements, such as: color consistency, stability, metamerism, color rendering, and the color rendering index. This course is registered for 1 AIA CEH. Take the course.
