The California Advanced Lighting Controls Training Program (CALCTP) and six Advanced Transportation Techology & Energy (ATTE) Centers are working on a statewide initiative aimed at increasing the use of lighting controls in commercial buildings and industrial facilities.
Through proper installation, advanced lighting controls improve energy efficiency in commercial facilities and save significant dollars. This partnership will educate, train and certify licensed electrical contractors, and state certified general electricians in the proper design, installation and commissioning of advanced lighting control systems.

The module content is organized to answer the following about lighting controls: what they are, what they do, where they are used, and how they are installed. Each “lecture” contains one or more interactive components, including group discussions, device demonstrations and/ or calculation exercises.
