CALCTP-Advanced Lighting Control

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.

Notes On Journeymen C.E. Credit

Notes to Journeyman - We have been receiving a lot of calls regarding the issue below.  This office contacted the DAS Electrician's Certification Unit and received the following clarification:

Continuing education will count if a Journeyman took courses after they passed their exam and became certified. So, for example, if they were not certified until May 1st, 2006 .. they cannot count any credit for anything before May 1st, 2006. This will also be true for those who renewed certifications. If they renewed this year (May 1st, 2009), for the next renewal date (May 1st, 2012), CEs will only count for any courses taken after May 1st, 2009 and not anything before.

If you have any further questions, please contact the DAS Electrician's Certification Unit directly at: 415-703-4919.
