basic light concepts, such as the lighting vocabulary; how the eye and brain function to provide vision: how we see light and how it affects what we “see”; and how to quantify color for lighting design. Attendees learn various light
sources: incandescent, halogen, Fluorescent, HID, LED and Low Pressure Sodium; luminaires (fixtures); controls; and photometry. The course covers various exterior lighting applications for roadways, sports lighting, retail/commercial, structures, parking lots, building exteriors, landscapes and residential design.
