Online Learning

As of 2023, On Demand training hosted on CIBSE’s Online Learning Portal will be moving to a new digital platform. Any training purchased before December 19th will need to be completed if you choose to start this now as after this date any progress will be lost.

If you haven’t begun your training yet, and do not intend to start it by 19 December 2022, your purchased course will transfer to the new platform in 2023 at no additional cost and you can start your learning there.

The aim of this module is to give engineers/project managers with little or no lighting design experience a better understanding of, and become confident in, the use of design methods for indoor lighting applications. Also to gain knowledge of the standards and guides used in lighting design and to better understand the Lighting designer/lighting specialist's offered solution.
This module should enable informed choices of luminaires, lamps, lighting controls and designs in accordance with the needs of the end users.
It contains not only sections on design, but also complimentary sections on lighting control systems as well as information and instruction with regard to lamp technologies.

Make your way through this course at your own pace with the following:

CIBSE online learning courses are suitable for those wishing to enhance and support their current knowledge base, as well as graduates within an engineering discipline.

Each unit has been peer reviewed and tested through this group. The units allow students to take a coordinated journey through an individual topic or a series of topics. The units form the backbone of several corporate training schemes.

Explain the different technical terms used to measure the operational parameters of a lighting design such as: illuminance, luminance, luminous flux, luminous intensity, efficacy etc.

Explain the operating principles of the main lamp forms for incandescent, low-pressure, high-pressure and solid state (LEDs) lamps, and have a good understanding of their luminous output, their efficacy and their suitability for various lighting tasks. (Included within the module is information on both the control equipment necessary to operate the various lamps, but also the control methods that can be used to operate lamps and ensure optical energy usage) 

Design suitable simple lighting schemes to ensure minimum energy consumption by both the point-to-point method of design (where applicable) and the lumen method of design.
