Three online training courses offered by Universal Lighting in its award-winning e-Learning Center are now NCQLP approved for LEU credit. The National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions, or NCQLP, is a non-profit organization that evaluates the educational opportunities available to lighting professionals. NCQLP members are required to earn continuing education credits called LEUs (Lighting Education Units) in order to maintain their certification.
Online courses available through Universal Lighting’s e-Learning Center include Fluorescent Ballast Basics I & II and Fundamentals of HID Lighting. All three of these courses have been approved by the NCQLP for education credits. Certified professionals who successfully complete one or more of these courses will receive a certificate that can be submitted to the NCQLP for LEUs.
The e-Learning Center is designed to educate lighting contractors, distributors and end users about the latest lighting technology for versatility, function, and energy savings. Enrollment in the program is free, and each course is divided into four user-friendly classes. Students simply click their way through the class and then take a quiz at the end to make sure they understand the material. Universal Lighting earned a 2006 “Best of the Best” Award from TED magazine for its e-Learning Center.
The NCQLP is a non-profit organization founded in 1991 to serve and protect the well-being of the public through effective and efficient lighting practice. Through a peer-review process, the NCQLP establishes the education, experience and examination requirements for baseline certification across the lighting professions.
Headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., with operations and distribution worldwide, Universal Lighting Technologies is focused on designing, manufacturing, and distributing lighting ballasts and controls.
