Learning Units Eligible
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
within the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing
Education Systems (CES) Registered Provider program.
REALTIME PROGRAM INSTRUCTOR
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
course is designed for those who need up-to-date information
on how to identify and justify the best and most meaningful
lighting retrofit projects, leading to their approval and
implementation. 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 show you the best path leading to overcoming current
challenges, and to successfully achieving approval and implementation
of beneficial lighting retrofit projects.
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.
with very little "low hanging fruit" left, new challenges
to lighting retrofits have come into play, including diminishing
returns, energy codes that often add costs without saving significant
extra energy, impact of the DesignLights Consortium, and other obstacles.
As a result, many beneficial lighting retrofits simply won't be
approved, if only projected hard savings and straight payback are
used as the primary criteria. But, as you'll learn in this seminar,
both basic and advanced soft savings utilizing some very good products
now available can lead to increased justification and implementation
of lighting retrofit projects for those know the facts.
the most important current lighting product discussion is what to
do with linear fluorescent fixtures, which include high performance
fluorescent T8s and electronic ballasts, TLEDs, LED lightbars, LED
troffer kits, and fluorescent and LED suspended indirect/direct
fixtures. The criteria which must be considered and the decision-making
process for these fixtures will be fully detailed in this program.
Also discussed will be lamps, recessed cans, task lights, freezer
lights, exterior fixtures, and garage fixtures.
of the best current LED hibays can often cost effectively replace
existing fluorescent T8 and T5HO hibays in addition to HID ones.
Other relevant questions examined will be: Are typical light meters
obsolete? Is it becoming a 90 CRI world? What will be the progression
of SSL products, including LEDs? Much of the material covered applies
both to new construction as well as remodels.
seminar is the evolution of the instructor's previous online course,
Tips, Strategies & Criteria for Choosing Optimum LED Products,
which over time has been constantly updated as technologies changed
and evolved. So even if you have 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.
