Cleveland Section


The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), places great emphasis on lighting education in fulfilling its mission to advance the art, science, and practice of illumination. Our goal is to provide agile and accessible educational opportunities through modern learning modalities as well as in-person seminars and courses to allow the vast knowledge of our members to be shared with our membership at large.

IES Cleveland will be hosting an Interior Lighting Design class which is an intermediate-level course building on the basics delivered in Lighting Fundamentals. It is perfect for anyone interested in quality interior design. This is an 8 module Certificate of Completion Course and qualifies for 16 IES CEUs and 16 AIA LUs. The topics that will be covered are Vision and Color, Light Sources and Auxiliary Devices, Solid State Lighting Sources and Systems (SSL), The Lighting Design Process, Daylighting, Library Lighting, Office Lighting, and Light and Health.
