SITizens Learning Credits

Overview

Industrial and commercial buildings are predominant users of electric lighting. The recommendations of lighting levels, glare limit and colour rendering etc are covered by relevant Singapore Standards and to be conformed as per Workplace Safety and Health regulations and BCA Green mark requirements. Proper lighting facilitates higher productivity, minimises accidents, errors and fatigue and enhances visual comfort of users. At the same time, there is substantial scope to save energy via proper re-lighting design and installation of more energy-efficient light sources, accessories and luminaires with capabilities of dimming, occupancy-sensing and daylight harvesting. New solutions and retro-fits are increasingly becoming affordable and easy to install and so, EETC feels this is an opportune time to learn the intricacies of lighting technology and systems for your own or your client’s premises to achieve substantial energy-savings. The main objectives of this 40-hour training programme are to enable participants to:

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
  1. Demonstrate in-depth knowledge and skills to identify and evaluate energy conservation opportunities in lighting systems.
  2. Demonstrate in-depth knowledge of current and newly emerging lighting technology, systems, design, and controls
  3. Survey a lighting installation, take measurements of existing parameters and tabulate different equipment used with their load, Lighting Power Density and other relevant parameters
  4. Conduct performance evaluation and energy audit of lighting systems through authentic learning with hands-on practical sessions.
  5. Design energy-efficient lighting systems through theory and software based design method for conformity to Singapore standards
  6. Select appropriate lighting equipment and control systems conforming to Singapore standards and draw up specifications for procurement
  7. Evaluate different lighting offers for their energy performance and Total Cost of Ownership to select appropriate products and systems
  8. Put up budget proposals to own or client’s management for new and retro-fit systems showing the quantum of energy-savings and Lifecycle economy
