About this course

In the North American construction and building maintenance sector, there is increasing demand for detailed knowledge of advanced lighting controls. The highest certification in this field is available through the National Advanced Lighting Control Training Program (NALCTP).

With proper installation, advanced lighting controls improve energy efficiency in commercial facilities and save significant dollars. The NALCTP Program trains and certifies Red Seal Electricians in the proper programming, testing, installation, commissioning and maintenance of advanced lighting control systems in commercial and industrial facilities.

This is a full-time, intensive course and will require additional homework some evenings. The NALCTP exam will be given on day 7.

Note – There is also approximately 10 hours of preparatory online work that must be completed before the start of in-class training. Details and login information will be provided to course registrants upon confirmation of enrolment.

Successful completion of this course will secure an internationally recognized certification for the successful candidate.
