  • No one likes high electricity bills at the end of every month, and with the latest innovations in home automation, "going green" is no longer an idea, but rather a mantra focusing on using the most energy efficient applications in your home. With so many new electrical requirements and standards being implemented in order to reach these new energy reduction goals, it's incredibly confusing knowing which appliances can be used when and where. This problem specifically affects home lighting as it is probably the largest and most consistent energy drainer on a regular basis. You don't want to get in trouble, but you also want to save your wallet, so step it up and dive into how home lighting applications work, or just get some training so you can roll up your sleeves and finally tackle those lighting projects you've been kicking around forever with Bedrock Learning's BL-oc-LIGHT Residential Lighting Control Online Training Course.

    This online course delivers an interactive and thorough foundation in many aspects of home lighting projects with detailed step-by-step design and installation procedures and programming for maximum lighting performance. The online course is perfect for beginners, amateurs, or expert light installers who want to learn or brush up on essential concepts such as lighting fixtures, lamp types, wiring, switching, dimming, control devices, important safety considerations, industry standards and electrical codes. The control methods reviewed include wired installations, wireless installations, PLC (Power Line Control), ZigBee control, and Z-Wave control. You will also learn correct testing and troubleshooting techniques to determine correct installation and performance of lighting control systems. The course isn't boring either, but informative texts, detailed colored diagrams, and in-depth articles are engaging and make learning truly efficient and enjoyable. This course is divided into 13 sections with each section ending with a quiz, and a comprehensive test at the very end to demonstrate and test your knowledge. This 8 hour long course is designed to be taken at whatever pace you find comfortable, and upon completion you are awarded a Course Completion Certificate and earn CEDIA CEUs (Continuing Education Units) 4, ESA CEUs 0.8, ETA Contact Hours 80 and InfoComm International RUs 8.
