The California Energy Commission adopted changes to the Building Energy Efficiency Standards contained in the California Code of Regulations, Title 24, Part 6 (also known as the California Energy Code) and associated administrative regulations in Part 1. The amended standards, called the "Nonresidential Acceptance Testing Certification," went into effect on July 01, 2014. These proposed regulations create independent third party certification and training procedures to ensure Field Test Technicians and their employers acquire the minimal level of training and skill to verify nonresidential lighting controls and mechanical systems comply with existing Energy Efficiency Building Standards. This training provides the requirements needed to become a Non-Residential CALCTP-AT Technician (field test certifier) for advanced lighting control systems.
The CALCTP Systems Course (including CALCTP Codes and Standard) is a ten-hour prerequisite requirement for entry into CALCTP Acceptance Test Technician Certification training. This class concludes with a final examination. Mid-level managers, contractor staff, estimators, project managers, and engineers can all benefit from this course. Topics include lighting concepts and control strategies, light sources, power and communication, general area controls switching, dimming and scene control, scheduling and demand response, occupancy sensing, and daylight harvesting.
A General applicant has to complete 12 hours of required Lighting Control Association online modules as a pre-requisite to be allowed to take the CALCTP Systems course. Verification of passage of on-line prerequisites must be presented to the instructor(s) on the first day of the course. Prerequisite Lighting Controls Association online program is on the Lighting Controls Association (LCA) Web site and consists of modules EE101, EE102, EE103, and EE201, these courses can be found at: http://aboutlightingcontrols.org/EducationExpress/
