Professional Certificate in Lighting Design
The Design Ecademy offers a Professional Certificate in Lighting Design course designed to enhance your present career or assist you with achieving a career in lighting design.
Few of us realise that when Thomas Edison invented the electrical light bulb just over 100 years ago, he changed the world by giving us instant control over our environment, and the freedom to work, play, and learn virtually anywhere and anytime. While Edison’s invention was a milestone in our history, continued innovation has resulted in lighting components that are far more effective, efficient and economical than the basic tungsten filament bulb, yet Edison’s most famous invention still remains the most widely used lighting source today.
Lighting design is undoubtedly one of the few industries where there appears to be unlimited potential for transformation, growth and creative design solutions …
Until recently, lighting was viewed as a mere necessity; a design component that plays an essential role in our ability to perceive our environment and the space we occupy. While this is true, it is now widely understood that the quality of lighting can also affect our health and safety, impact our mood and even influence the way we behave within certain spaces.
Quality lighting systems can enrich the quality of our lives, but retro-fitting presents many difficulties so the lighting scheme must be envisioned, designed and implemented during the earliest phases of building design. This is the challenge and the role of the lighting designer!
Lighting design is ordinarily a highly technical and specialised subject, combining electrical knowledge and engineering with design skills.
The Design Ecademy offers the first lighting course of its kind to offer training specifically for interior lighting design. Our lighting design course will teach you how to identify, recreate and then manipulate the effects of lighting in a positive manner so that you can design lighting schemes successfully for clients again and again.
Lighting design is an exciting and challenging field and if you love diversity and enjoy the opportunity to be creative then this might be just what you’re looking for. Good lighting designers are problem solvers, determining where light is needed and designing it with economy and creative flair. Successful completion of our lighting design course will enable you to do the same.
