ABOUT THE SEMINAR

This three-day seminar provides an up-to-date and broad-based instructional program covering the very latest developments in advanced lighting and technology innovations which, when appropriately applied, can both significantly reduce lighting-related energy consumption as well as cost-effectively result in improved visual environments in a wide variety of settings. It is also designed to serve as an approved preparatory vehicle for professionals who wish to take the Certified Lighting Efficiency Professional (CLEP) exam.

Emphasis is placed on the following areas:

  • Designing or upgrading lighting systems in a manner which realizes savings while preserving or improving lighting quality
  • Calculating the true savings from lighting improvements
  • Measuring and documenting savings achieved through an upgrade project
  • Assessing and implementing effective lighting control strategies
  • Evaluating new lighting products, including LED / SSL technologies which may now be right for your applications

CLEP Certification
The CLEP certification process requires the submitting of a separate application and $300 application fee, which qualifies you to sit for the exam. The CLEP examination is administered at each seminar site in the afternoon of the final day of instruction -- only to those candidates who have met the above requirements. For information on obtaining your CLEP application form, or for further information on the CLEP program, visit www.aeecenter.org/CLEP.
