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.

About the Seminar

This course earns .4 CEUs, 4 PDHs and .8 AEE Credits toward Re-certification.

Human centric lighting may well represent the next great evolution in lighting design. The correct lighting 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.

This seminar discusses the recent developments and theories on circadian benefits (HCL 1.0), improved lighting for vision (HCL 2.0) and additional non-circadian benefits (HCL 3.0) for interior environments. Case examples are presented that demonstrate the latest lighting technologies, and how they can benefit in offices, schools, hospitals, aged care facilities, manufacturing, residences, etc.

If you have taken this seminar prior to 2018 you still have much to gain from understanding the benefits of HCL 3.0. These are so significant they can be a decisive factor for end-customers when approving lighting retrofit projects.

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.

Dates and Times

The following offering(s) of the Human Centric Lighting Online Seminar are currently scheduled. The program consists of two 2-hour teleconferencing sessions, for a total of 4 hours of instruction.

Completion of all 2 modules is required to receive CEU and PDH Credit, and Course Certificate awarded by AEE.
