Course Description

The next big trend in home technology and “Going Green” is lighting control. This course delivers a solid foundation from benefits to advanced technology concepts to implementation. Topics include lighting fixtures, lamp types, wiring, switching, dimming, control devices, important safety considerations, industry standards and electrical codes. Methods of control presented are: wired, wireless, PLC (Power Line Control), Zigbee, Z-Wave, proprietary and more. Students learn detailed design steps, installation procedures and programming features for a successful installation. Testing and troubleshooting methodologies are discussed to confirm performance of lighting control systems.

Informative text and detailed color diagrams teach precisely what students need to know to successfully install lighting systems. Supplemental In-Depth articles provide deeper background and technical information on critical topics, and Project Management Tips coach technicians on good installation practices. An online Glossary provides instant access to definitions of key terms.

The course is divided into 12 training modules – each module ends with a quiz, and a comprehensive test at the end of the course allows students to demonstrate their knowledge of lighting control. Students can take the course at their own pace, picking up where they leave off at their convenience.



Students should have a basic understanding of electrical principles to get maximum benefit from this course. Note: This course is not designed to prepare a student to work as an electrician or to work with high voltages – always work with a licensed electrician when dealing with high voltages.
