BOC 1003: Efficient Lighting Fundamentals covers lighting fundamentals and types of lighting for economical and energy efficient lighting systems.

Learn principles of efficient lighting, including evaluation of lighting levels, quality and maintenance, lighting fixture and control technologies, common upgrades, retrofit and redesign options, and management strategies as they apply to space use and function. A Lighting Survey and Lighting Retrofit Case Study project is due by the start of the next course, BOC 1004 HVAC Controls Fundamentals.

By the end of this course, you are able to:


  1. Describe the fundamentals of light and the principles of energy efficient lighting.

  2. Identify the technology behind modern lighting equipment, including, lamps, ballasts, luminaires, and controls.

  3. Discuss how energy efficient lighting strategies are implemented.

  4. Describe O & M procedures for lighting systems in typical commercial spaces.

  5. Identify possible lighting retro-fit options for typical commercial spaces.

  6. Recall utility programs that can help with energy efficiency projects.

  7. Conduct a lighting survey for a space or building.

To qualify for Building Operator Certification, BOC 1003: Efficient Lighting Fundamentals must be completed with BOC 1001, 1002, 1004, 1005, 1006, and 1009.

The United States Green Building Council (www.gbci.org) has approved the core BOC Level I curriculum for continuing education hours toward the LEED Credential Maintenance Program. BOC 1003 is approved to earn LEED credential holders 8 continuing education hours.
