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. and chair of the Human Centric Lighting Society, 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. 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.


This course is designed for those who can benefit from a clearer understanding of how to perform a targeted and meaningful lighting energy audit. Those who will benefit from this program include:

  • Electrical engineers
  • Energy engineers and managers
  • Architects and interior designers
  • Lighting specialists
  • Energy and sustainability consultants
  • Plant and facility engineers
  • Facility and maintenance managers
  • Electrical contractors
  • Lighting representatives
  • ESCO professionals
  • Government planners and managers
Presented online in a series of two live 2 hour time modules, this seminar will show you the hows and whys of being up to speed on the critical importance of good lighting audits, and the specific ways they are being used today to achieve optimum results for lighting projects.

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.


Not only are good lighting audits required for today's advanced lighting retrofit projects, they can also be very important for retrofit-commissioning, zero net energy, energy use intensity, redesign, water conservation evaluations, etc. Now that most of the low hanging fruit is gone, lighting audits usually need to include more information than in the past, and numerous lighting retrofit contractors have been diversifying.

The different types of lighting audits—and ideal times within the process for audits to be performed—will be discussed in this two day seminar. The use onsite of hard-copy paper vs. an electronic tablet to record data and results will be discussed, along with some of the new electronic assets now available, including GPS addresses for each exterior lighting fixture. A sample Excel audit file will be provided, as well as information on how data loggers can be of help.

The purpose of this program is to guide participants on the best approaches to harvesting necessary existing information for lighting projects. It does not include recommendations for a lighting retrofit or other type of project. Many auditors only gather and record existing information, and then pass that information on to specifiers. Others provide both the audit and specific recommendations.

The instructor will discuss the value for auditors both to become more efficient at the audit proceess, and to gather additional detailed information when applicable, including watts per square foot, locations of spectrally enhanced lighting and melanopic lighting, and observed areas that really deserve better lighting. This seminar also provides a good foundation for those who may benefit from other AEE webinars covering lighting retrofits, human centric lighting, lighting controls and smart lighting.
