Online education

Lighting is more than flicking a switch and suddenly your room is illuminated... there is a whole science behind it. Our lighting experts have extensively studied the science behind lighting and lighting applications. We would like to offer our customers the chance to educate themselves so they can make informed decisions about the lighting in their facility. Below are links to various online training courses created by our manufacturer partners to help educate you on the science behind lighting. Some of these courses are the same exact ones that our lighting experts take.
