IES: The Lighting Society is introducing a new course for the second half of 2018 as an extension to the existing Introduction to Light course that will be know as IESANZ: The Basics of Lighting Design for those seeking further education. 


Aims of this Course:
This course is designed to expand on your knowledge of light and teach you about the basics of its designed application. We would expect you to walk away from this course with the ability to talk to your lighting designer with a good basis of lighting design knowledge or take on further study and reading to complete your own lighting designs.


This is not a lighting design software course and although we will provide brief introductions to the 3 most popular lighting design software programs, it is not designed to replace software specific training. Further reading would be required for an in depth knowledge of the relevant Australia Standards.


Topics to be covered will include:

  • Tasks and Australian Standards/Decorative design
  • Luminaire selection
  • Maintenance – AS1680.4
  • Light Sources
  • Photometric Files
  • Room Properties
  • Measurement Planes
  • Gross error checking
  • Lighting design software


A Certificate of Completion will be provided to all students, however participants will be required to attend both full days. To enroll in this course you must have completed either the IESANZ: An Introduction to Light Course (the current 2 day version or previously offered 3 day course). A basic understanding of lighting principles will be required.



Cost per person is $1300 (inclusive of GST). Payment must be received prior to the commencement of the course – no refund will be offered for last minute cancellation however a deferment is possible.
