Popular Pre-conference CLC Class Returns in 2018
In response to a high volume of requests from ALA members, the association announced the return of the pre-conference CLC class. The course will be taught by Peter Romaniello, IALD, owner of Conceptual Lighting, LLC, on Sunday, Sept. 23 before Conference kicks off at the Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C., on Sept. 24.
The course, which requires an additional registration fee, is worth 6 CLC credit hours. The topic of the course will be avoiding lighting problems before installation. “Quality lighting is not only about the fixtures, but also proper technique and correct details,” said Romaniello. “During the CLC class, we will explore a variety of different topics and typical situations with practical demonstrations and in-depth discussions on how to avoid problems before they become real issues on a jobsite.”
Romaniello will cover key details about common lighting applications, such as cove lighting, integrated lighting, under-cabinet lighting, lighting artwork, recessed lighting, and the impact of the connected home. During the course, he will provide in-depth details and examples of how these lighting applications can go wrong, and what to look for and consider before starting a project to ensure these issues are avoided. Attendees will leave this course with the knowledge necessary to be completely certain that their lighting plans will create the effect they have described to their customers.
Finally, to tie all of these topics together, Romaniello will teach attendees how to quickly analyze a set of architectural plans to ensure they can accurately and concisely design a lighting plan that will meet their clients’ needs and expectations. Without a full understanding of the space, it is not possible to light it properly. In the course, Romaniello will analyze existing lighting plans for situations and discuss how to determine whether they will work.
“Obviously, there is more than one way to light a room,” added Romaniello. “However, there are basic principles and techniques that will lead to success and add to the beauty and value of a home.” For additional details, or to register for this course, members may visit ALAConference.com.
