CALCTP is a new program operated by representatives of the CA Lighting Technology Center, CA Energy Commission, CA Community College system, public utilities, electrical contractors, electrical workers, and manufacturers of advanced, high efficiency lighting and control systems.
CALCTP will educate, train, and certify electrical contractors and electricians in the best practices and most effective techniques to install, tune, commission, and maintain advanced lighting control systems.
In support of CALCTP, several LCA (Lighting Controls Association) Education Express online courses are now required as prerequisites before receiving live training by CALCTP. These include EE 101: Introduction to Lighting Control, EE 102: Switching Control, EE 103: Fluorescent Dimming and EE 201: Daylight Harvesting. Students may take these courses at any time, at their own pace, from anywhere, and for free; only a short registration is required.
The live training is a 50 hour hands on lab/lecture being offered, here at the REJATC Training Center. If you are interested in getting certified in this special skill visit "Education Express" web site and sign up for the on line course(s). After completion of the prerequisites you decide to continue with the live training, contact Steve Stobel and he will help get you registered.
We have 1 class scheduled : 8/4 - 8/8/2014, 7:00 - 3:30 pm each day. We have tentatively scheduled 2 additional classes : the first will be the week of 8/11 - 8/15/2014 and the second would be 8/18 - 8/22/2014, if we have enough interested people. There will be $100.00 (checks only) refundable deposit, returned after the completion of the 50 hours, and a $35.00 (checks only) materials fee. The class will be available to the first members that have current General Electrician State Certification, complete the online courses, and bring their registration checks to the Training Center (class size is 4 members minimum/ 8 members maximum).
The California Energy Commision has approved the the new Title 24 requirements effective 7/1/2014. This class is the first step in becoming certified to comply with these new regulations.
These hours count toward your State Continuing Education requirements.
