Tridonic has announced the availability of three CPD modules. This brings the total number of modules available to nine, all of which have been certified by CIBSE. The company is currently offering the chance for architects and specifiers to book their staff on to one or more these modules free of charge. The three new modules are:
Emergency battery technology
This provides information on the different battery technologies used in self-contained emergency luminaires in the UK and lists their advantages and limitations. It goes on to give information on the extensive testing performed by inverter manufacturers to ensure battery lifetime and compatibility with their products.
LED handling and precautions
With the rapid move to LED usage the lighting industry is undergoing a large technological change which includes dealing with electronic components that can be damaged by the voltages generated through static build-up in the human body and other objects. This module explains the need for the correct storage and handling of static sensitive products and how this can be achieved.
The introduction of LEDs within the lighting industry has brought new terminology which must be understood in order to correctly use these products. This CPD explains the new terms found on LED module and LED driver documentation.
One company whose staff have already benefitted from some of Tridonic's earlier modules is Fagerhult, where eight members of staff with varying levels of knowledge and experience, attended sessions earlier this year. "In order to offer the best service and support to our customers it is important that our engineers keep abreast of the latest developments. The CPD modules that Tridonic delivered brought the team up to date on both LED modules and LED driver technology and will help them in their day to day roles when talking to potential customers about the benefits of these new approaches," said Les Thomas, Technical Manager, Lighting Solutions, Fagerhult.
Simon Blazey, Strategic Solution Sales Manager, Tridonic, said: "CPD is an accepted part of many traditional professional roles. Here at Tridonic we understand the importance of investing in continuous training for both our staff and customers. We are delighted that we now have a broad portfolio of resources available and will continue to review and develop new modules as our own products and solutions evolve."
