Since joining the prestigious RIBA CPD Providers Network, creating and delivering RIBA accredited CPD content in June last year, we have delivered free CPD seminars to over 1200 architects and specifiers wishing to extend their knowledge on commercial lighting. The seminars have been very well received and are continuously proving to be a huge success. However, the world of commercial lighting specification stretches beyond the architectural profession and we wanted to acknowledge that.
We are a fountain of knowledge.
The wait is finally over and we are proud to announce that two of our CPD seminars have now been accredited by CIBSE. Explore the available seminars.
In the age of portable technology, we are able to control buildings within a few clicks on the screen. The growing expectations on sustainability, flexibility and connectivity put a great demand on commercial lighting. This seminar looks at the benefits of using wireless control systems in the workplace.
With the new guidelines and more “appearance driven” schemes, workplace lighting is calling for new technologies, better use of daylight and responsible use of energy. This seminar explores how to design good lighting schemes to suit the common types of commercial developments in the UK.
With over 21,000 members in 100 countries worldwide, The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) is a professional membership body empowering its members through expanding their knowledge and skills. It’s origins date to the final years of the Victorian Era and CIBSE is recognised for setting standards on building services engineering. And as such, it’s a force to be reckoned with.
The wait is over.
The wait is over and we are now proudly adding a new logo to our webpage- the blue CIBSE logo with a chained hawk holding a fiery torch. The hawk’s keen eyesight maintains a watchful eye on the conservation of energy, while the chain signifies its control for mankind’s use. 299 Lighting have reached another milestone and become a part of the CIBSE CPD Providers Network, offering CIBSE-accredited CPD seminars and helping building services professionals develop their skills and expand their knowledge on the subject of lighting.
“Achieving the CIBSE accreditation for our CPD seminars was an acknowledgement of the various professions involved in lighting specification, and to give confidence to our audience that our CPD content is of a high standard.”
Marcela Pomphrey – Marketing Director.
So what’s in the box?
We are currently presenting the first two CIBSE & RIBA accredited seminars. Covering the topics that are particularly close to our heart, these are dedicated to Workplace Lighting Design and Wireless Lighting Controls.
Both the seminars are an introduction to their subject and as such, they follow the same structure of demystifying the industry jargon and use some real-life examples based on our case studies. The seminars offer an immersion into a subject and are designed to give you a good knowledge of a particular topic.
We will be submitting our Emergency Lighting Design CPD for accreditation alongside our latest CPD currently in development, where we will aim to have all of our CPD content both RIBA and CIBSE accredited.
Meet the presenter.
True to our philosophy of growing our own talent and getting things done in-house, the seminars were written by our Project Engineer and technical geek, Josh Bell. Josh has been working in lighting since he left school and is particularly interested in wireless technology and future-proofing of design schemes. Equipped with solid knowledge based on his involvement in projects and varied experience in the lighting sector, Josh has been presenting the CPD’s since June 2020 and is ready to answer any of your questions.
Where is my sandwich?
We are launching the CPD seminars in the uncertain ‘after covid’ times. With many returning back to work but a fair few still working from home or being furloughed, we are offering the CPD seminars as live online sessions, until further notice.
As we currently can’t bring a nice selection of sandwiches with us, we decided to treat everyone who completes a CPD seminar with us to a graze box. You will receive a code on the completion of the session. You can then choose one of the 7 available options and enter the code in the checkout. It’s quick and easy. All there is left to do is wait for the box to arrive at your door.
Like what you see?
All CPD’s can be booked through the booking form here. We are currently working on a seminar covering Lighting & Well-Being, following the WELL standard, so please register your interest, if this is a subject you would like to learn more about. If you have a suggestion for a seminar topic, please drop us a line. We love constructive feedback.
Enjoy the learning!
