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.
Association of Energy Engineers is an approved training provider

Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.
REALTIME PROGRAM INSTRUCTOR
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
course is designed for those who need to know the very latest
information on today's LED lighting products, and how they
compare to other lighting options. If you're just too busy
to get away from the office, this is the course for you! Those
who will benefit from this program include:
planners and managers
and facility engineers
online in a series of four live two-hour time modules, this seminar
is designed to educate you about both the best types of application
scenarios for utilizing current LED lighting technologies, as well
as how to make the smartest decisions when considering replacing
other lighting technologies with LED.
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 four live teleconferencing sessions, as well
as in the time between session.
it is truly becoming an LED world, and LED products last so long,
making a wrong decision could result in potentially having to keep
less-than-ideal lighting in place for a long time. This class provides
tools and strategies to help you make good decisions when planning
a lighting upgrade using LED technologies that will provide both
the lighting quality and energy savings desired.
the decision-making process for upgrading to LED can get bogged
down due to the delicate balance of lost opportunity vs. waiting
for better and less expensive products to become available. But,
as an example, if a company or organization waits at least one year
for LED products to improve and/or become less expensive, they may
never recoup the lost savings resulting from keeping the existing
lighting in place. On the other hand, once new LED lighting is in
place, it may be economically necessary to keep it for at least
10 years, because it is probably not cost-effective to quickly replace
it again. Utilizing the leading, but not "bleeding" edge
of technology can be the key to optimizing energy-economic results
of an LED-based lighting upgrade project.
is important to understand that even the most efficient fixed Kelvin
LED products, typical light meters, photopic lumens, CRI, payback,
DesignLights Consortium and energy codes may be considered obsolete.
LED lamps, TLEDs, lightbars, troffer and troffer kits, task lights,
freezer lights, exterior fixtures and garage fixtures will be examine
in this program. New generation LED hibays can often cost-effectively
replace existing fluorescent T8 and T5HO hibays in addition to HID
ones. Still, in many applications high performance legacy products,
like top grade fluorescent T8 systems and electronic ballasted ceramic
metal halide can still be better than LED. Laser diodes and organic
LEDs (OLEDs) may replace LED as the best solid state lighting (SSL)
sooner than many people expect. This course is intended to be complimentary
to the Lighting
Controls & the Evolution of Smart Lighting online seminar.
seminar is the evolution of the instructor's previous online course,
LEDs vs. High Performance Incumbents, which over time was
constantly updated as technologies changed and evolved. So even
if you participated in a previous LED course, you will find that
most of the information covered in this program will be significantly
more up to date than even what was covered last year and
will continue to evolve and remain current for each upcoming presentation
of the course.
