IES Charlotte is proud to present the  next course focusing on lighting for seniors. Greg Guarnaccia of Doubledge Design will bring us up to speed on the current requirements. The class will count for 1 AIA / CEU credit.

 

 Course Summary: 

Seniors represent the fastest growing segment of the population with over 40 million Americans over 65. With over 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day, there has been a renewed interest in lighting for seniors beyond traditional areas like housing and senior care facilities. Come learn about the existing standards as well as some of the newest developments in the world of lighting for the low vision population.
