Lighting Design - Accredited Certificate Course (Online)

Lighting design is an exciting and challenging field and if you love diversity and being creative then you are well suited to becoming a lighting designer. Until recently, lighting was viewed as a mere necessity; something we merely need to see our environment and the space we occupy. It is now widely understood that the quality of lighting can also affect our health and safety, impact our mood and even influence the way we behave within certain spaces. Quality lighting design can enrich the quality of our lives, but retro-fitting presents many difficulties so lighting designers must envision, plan and implement their lighting design during the earliest phases of building construction. This is one of the challenges of lighting designers…

Most lighting design courses are highly technical and specialised, combining electrical knowledge and engineering with design skills. This lighting design course is the first lighting design course of its kind to focus specifically on interior lighting for lighting designers. On this lighting design course you’ll learn how to achieve a variety of lighting effects and how to select all the components that are an essential part of every good lighting design (ie. lamps, luminaires and controls). You’ll also learn how to produce plans & specifications so you can work knowledgably with clients and alongside other professionals (ie. other lighting designers, architects & electricians).
