These courses are designed to provide agents, architects, engineers, lighting designers, and anyone interested in developing a better understanding of available product solutions that meet mandated emergency lighting standards.
Committed to Continuing Education & Training
The more you know about emergency lighting, the better we look. That’s the motivation for the launch of our first series of AIA Accredited Courses.
Through these accredited AIA courses, the newest addition to our Continuing Education Program, monthly Chalk Talk webinars, and on-going agency training, it’s our goal to be your “go-to” resource for all your emergency lighting questions and solutions.
On-Demand AIA Accredited Courses
Egress Marking and Illumination: ISO-0501
Credits: 0.5 HSW – 0.5LU
This course is designed to introduce the architect to egress marking systems that are used for ordinary way finding and building evacuation in emergency situations. These signage systems are meant to be selected and installed according to specific standards established by building codes. Additionally, once installed, these systems must be tested to assure their efficacy in case of an emergency. How to select and specify the appropriate markers and the technological solutions available, as well as testing methods, will all be covered in this course.
