You are invited to watch the LC Exam Prep: The Science of Lighting and Basic Electricity webinar

The Science of Lighting and Basic Electricity is the first webinar in the series of three, one-hour webinars to provide a technical foundation for students sitting for the LC exam. While the LC exam covers a much broader list of subjects than being presented here, this LC Exam Prep series is being offered to provide a foundation upon which additional required topics can be explored and mastered. The NCQLP web site provides the “Candidate Handbook”, which can be downloaded and should be studied to understand the breadth, depth and makeup of the exam.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What is light? Learn about basic lighting metrics including; Spectral Power distributions, Lumens, Candela, Illuminance
  • Lighting Quality Metrics. Because sources vary greatly in light quality, this section will explore industry metrics such as Correlated Color Temperature, Color Rendering Index, R9 and beam spread that are seen on lighting cut sheets.
  • Electricity 101: Ohms law and single and 3-phase power will be presented, and energy costs measured in $/kWh will be explored.

Attendance of this webinar series does not guarantee passing the exam.
