CEU Title:
LED 301 – Emerging Technologies in Decorative Lighting

CEU Description:
WAC Lighting presents “LED 301, Emerging Technologies in Decorative LED Luminaires,” which is accredited by the AIA (American Institute of Architects), ALA (American Lighting Association), ASID (American Society of Designers), IIDA (International Interior Design Association) and IDC (Interior Designers of Canada). The CEU Course educates industry professionals on the latest LED advancements in Decorative Lighting.

The course features new technologies, materials and shapes and sizes, as well as new electronics developed for LED Luminaires including new driver technology, dimming and control capabilities, upgraded LEDs, usage and better output. Also reviewed are new standards for LED luminaires such as certifications, compliance and local laws and ordinances, as well as decorative and layered lighting techniques such as task, accent and ambient lighting.

What we enjoy most about LED lighting is that it can revolutionize design. Luminaires become cleaner and sleeker than before when we were limited to large and glaring lamp options. LED lighting enables people with a quality of lighting they never thought possible or knew they needed.

Company Biography:
For over thirty-five years WAC Lighting has operated at the forefront of emerging technologies. Now a second-generation owner-operated company, WAC Lighting continues to elevate the industry in design and manufacturing by challenging conventions and building sustainable products responsibly.

While other manufacturers offshore outsource everything from design and assembly to customer service, WAC chooses to build from within. Over the years, our investment in electronics development, research and test laboratories, and manufacturing facilities has culminated into a unique and unparalleled world-class brand. Since the early-2000s we have been over 90% self-sourced across the board as a vertically integrated operation from research and design to the fabrication of the smallest components within our luminaires.

As a design-and-build manufacturer, we build long-term relationships with lighting designers, architects, and distributors by solving the challenges they face with creativity and innovation. Over the years, professionals have entrusted us to provide them with cutting-edge technology made accessible to most lighting budgets through a variety of options. Our award-winning portfolio of architectural products, decorative lighting, and landscape lighting focuses on addressing known problems or meeting unfulfilled needs with lighting solutions in commercial, residential, and hospitality settings.
