Thomas Mason, P.E.
This two hour online course discusses the determination of requirements, calculations and graphic representation of typical interior commercial lighting. The approach is to examine each facet of design. Government regulations are presented, optical physics are examined and commercially available fixtures are discussed. Principals foci are lighting levels, installation, control and power distribution. One appendix provides a summary of IESNA recommended lighting levels, another presents a comparison of ASHRAE 90.1 lighting mandates and one State's school funding lighting mandates. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
