MODULES/ LEARNING OBJECTIVES
> Basics of Light and Colour and Illumination in Lighting- Revision from Certificate course. (Includes a lab session.) > Test and measurement standards for lighting- gain an understanding of the requirements for performance testing
of luminaires and on-site testing of lighting installations. > Spectroscopy and Optics- Deals with the basics of spectral light measurement and the fundamental principles of optical physics (in a lighting context.) (Includes a lab
> Photobiological Safety. Theoretical background, standards and practical guidance on testing light sources and luminaires for eye and skin safety. (Includes a lab session.) > Flicker. Theoretical background, standards and
practical guidance on testing light sources and luminaires for temporal lighting artefacts. (Includes a lab session.) > Circadian lighting. Biological background and practical guidance on the application of human centric lighting. >
Mesopic Lighting. Explanation of exterior and interior lighting in the context of exploiting the crossover of the day and night adapted retina responses in twilight lighting regions. > LED lifetime and lumen maintenance. Exploring
LED light source and luminaire lifetime and lumen maintenance statistics. How verifiable are these claims, and what are the most common light source and luminaire failure mechanisms?
A 2,500 word essay task set at the end of the second day with a two month deadline. A question paper set at the end of the second day (two week deadline.)
Since graduating from Southampton University with a PHD in Quantum and Functional Matter Physics. Gareth has spent the past ten years specialising in photometric/optical testing services for a variety of industries, with lighting
becoming his forte. Already highly respected within the realms of academia, photometry and lighting, Gareth is also experienced in establishing and managing various laboratories and centres of excellence, including Photometric
and Optical Testing Services LLP and Birmingham Science Park Aston. With an encyclopaedic knowledge and varied experiences, Gareth brings a unique perspective to the Association. He has been instrumental in the re-development
of Lighting Industry Academy Courses and is looking forward to taking a lead role in the delivery and management of the HND to ensure the industry’s needs are met. Gareth is a former Mastermind contestant and apprentice
