Fundamentals of Lighting @ BCIT Burnaby Campus

March 7, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

To be more environmentally responsible, the Vancouver Section does not provide the IES FOL-15 course material. You will be required to purchase the IES Fundamentals of Lighting Student Edition course material from the IES website (if you want a hardcopy, please be aware that it takes about 3 weeks to arrive):

Follow the instructions on the IES website to download and open the files. The total number of pages is in excess of 1,000 so you will need some type of device (laptop, Surface Pro, IPad, etc.) to use in class. We typically have supplementary files available through Google Classroom. In order to access all the quizzes and supplementary files, you will need a Google email account for Classroom access. In order to pass the course, you will have quizzes throughout the course and a take home exam given out on the final day.With all the dietary restrictions these days, no food or refreshments will be provided. BCIT has many cafeteria options on Friday but very little on Saturday.
