About this Course
The IES offers a series of webinars that provide supplemental education to coincide with a recently revised or new IES Standard (Recommended Practice - RP, Technical Memorandum - TM, etc.). RP-36, Maintenance in the LED Era is part of the IES Standards Webinars.
Description: Rather than being maintenance free, LED requires a change in maintenance practices more akin to stewardship than reactive replacement. Based on RP-36 and other information, this joint IES/NALMCO webinar will provide an overview of effective maintenance practices for indoor and outdoor LED lighting and control systems.
By the end of this course learners will be able to...
1. Apply the purpose and benefits of planned maintenance to lighting projects.
2. Understand typical lighting and control system behavior and how it relates to maintenance.
3. Recommend maintenance best practices.
4. Design lighting and control systems to minimize maintenance requirements.
