AIA Learning Units Eligible

This course has been approved by AIA for continuing education credits. The AIA requires that its registered architect members earn 18 Learning Unit (LU) hours of continuing education credit annually (eight hours of which must be related to Health, Safety, and Welfare topics and four of those eight in Sustainable Design) to remain in good standing. Architectural boards in 40 states, 10 Canadian Provinces, and 19 countries have implemented mandatory continuing education (MCE) for re-licensure.

The Association of Energy Engineers is an approved training provider within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.


STAN WALERCZYK, C.L.E.P., principal of Lighting Wizards, Inc., brings to this program over 25 years of experience in the lighting field covering distribution, maintenance, retrofit contracting, 3rd party review, consulting, design, luminaire design, policy making and research. He assisted the U.S. Department of Energy research on spectrally enhanced lighting. Mr. Walerczyk is currently on the IES Spectral Effects and Energy Management Committees, and is vice chair of the Human Centric Lighting Society. He is widely published in major lighting and energy trade journals, and has made presentations at LightFair and the World Energy Engineering Congress. He has instructed hundreds of lighting-related seminars for energy, lighting and facility professionals, and authored the book, Lighting & Controls: Transitioning to the Future, published by The Fairmont Press.
Presented online in a series of two live 2 hour time modules, this seminar covers the latest developments in spectrally enhanced lighting, and how these advances can be effectively applied for the purpose of taking important human factors into account in lighting design and application.

You can participate in the seminar from your office, home, or anywhere you have access to the internet and a phone or VOIP. You'll have opportunities to interact with your instructor and colleagues in real time during the two live, interactive online sessions.


Human centric lighting, including use of tunable LED products, may well represent the next great evolution in lighting design. Also referred to as "human factors in lighting," biophilia and other terms, human centric lighting may be defined as day and electric lighting designed and applied in a manner which has been shown to improve circadian rhythms for alertness and sleep, mood, visual acuity, and productivity. Simultaneously its effective application can result in increased lighting performance, energy savings, and sustainability in design.

The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recently published TM-24-13, which describes how light spectrum affects visual acuity in interior lighted spaces, and illustrates how spectrally enhanced lighting may be factored into lighting calculations for interior lighting applications. This important technical memorandum also will be discussed as it applies to human centric lighting design.

The technologies examined in this seminar, in conjunction with their use to achieve optimum human centric lighting, include primarily the latest generation of dimming and warm-to-cool white Kelvin changing LED troffers, troffer kits, drums, and task lights. It should be noted that many of the dimming and Kelvin changing LED products have about the same lumens, lumen per watt, rated life and cost as standard LED products. Fixed Kelvin products and nature scene troffers will also be discussed. Case examples including human centric lighting applications in hospitals, schools and offices will be presented by the instructor.
