Next month, CEDIA is hosting a lighting course to help beginners and established professionals in the industry develop their understanding of lighting control in the residential market. CEDIA's two-day Lighting Design Package will take place on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th May 2016, and hosted at AWE’s HQ in Epsom. 

Lighting control can be a profitable area for home technology professionals. However, systems need to be designed, installed and documented correctly for long-term reliability. Recognising the importance and increased market demand for lighting design and energy conserving solutions, CEDIA offers this two-day Lighting Design Package to help installers offer the best application of lighting to clients. 

Day one - Introduction to Lighting Fundamentals - will take students through the theory of lighting and the science behind the ‘art’ of lighting before moving onto more practical sessions. In accordance with current electrical standards, attendees will test different dimming control types, including resistive dimming, LED,DALI and DMX. Focusing on the technical aspects of lighting this course is recommended for engineers and designers new to lighting control.

Building on the lighting fundamentals discussed on day one, day two provides a more in-depth understanding on lighting. Residential Lighting Control is aimed at developing installation engineers and designers who already have a basic understanding of lighting control. The session will focus on the practical applications of lighting control in the residential market, including common pitfalls to avoid, different types of dimming available and regulation and safety standards - BS7671 and Part L compliance. Using hands-on sessions, attendees will leave this course with a strong understanding of the complete technical solution for lighting control systems.

The full Lighting Design Package is open to both CEDIA members at £360.00 incl VAT and non-members at £510.00 incl VAT. Attendees will also receive lunch and daytime refreshments. For those who are unable to attend both days, participants can book Introduction to Lighting Fundamentals or Residential Lighting Control separately at a price of £202.80 incl VAT for CEDIA members and £286.80 incl VAT for non-members.
