Morning Class 10:00am – 12:00pm

                What’s New in Lighting: 2011 – The fall tradition continues of reviewing this year’s latest innovations in exterior and interior lighting luminaires, lamps, ballasts, publications, controls, and components.  Also included in the class are award winning products recognized throughout the industry.  This class is intended for those already familiar with basic lighting terminology (i.e. CRI, CCT, L/W, CMH, LED, OLED etc.) but can be of interest to those just entering the lighting industry as well.  Instructor: Andrew Pultorak LC, MIES.

Lunch 12:00pm – 1:00pm

Afternoon Class 1:00pm-3:00pm

                Matching Technologies to Applications – Whether new construction, a major renovation, or a simple retro-fit, the challenge is to develop a lighting scheme which takes into consideration the condition of the existing space, the tasks being performed, energy codes, and lower power consumption.  In addition, the effects of coming legislation must also be considered: i.e. what really happens to T12 lamps in July of 2012?  The new design must also meet accepted standards of lighting quality and quantity while making economic sense.  This class will look at a number of interior and exterior spaces, and the steps necessary to make decisions about available lamps, ballasts, luminaires, controls, and how they may be successfully applied.  Instructor:  Jeff Robbins LC, MIES.

                Standard:  $30.00 per class

LDL 2010 Spring Lighting Classes 

Its that time of year again...  Seattle's Lighting Design Lab is en-route to Bozeman to share with us what's new in the lighting design world!  On Wednesday April 28, the LDL will set up shop at the Homewood Suites for two lectures.

The Impact of New Legislation on Lighting, presented by Andrew Pultorak, LC, MIES, will cover energy legislations as they relate to lighting legislation and codes that may impact your businesses.  He will answer questions like "Is the incandescent really being banned forever?" "Why am I hearing that T12 and some T8 lamps are going away?" and "How will these changes effect how I may need to comply with lighting energy codes?"

Effective Use of the Newest Lighting Controls -- Beyond the Basics, presented by Jeff Robbins, LC, MIES, will focus on complying with local energy codes with the use of occupancy sensors and daylight controls.  Recent advances in these technologies are making it easier to reach energy usage goals, but their correct operation is not easy to understand.

Morning Session: 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Lunch is included, with registration fee
Afternoon Session: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Cost is $30 per session, per attendee
(students and employees of LDL sponsors -- cost is $10 per session)
