The Institution of Lighting Professionals launches latest online course, Understanding Obtrusive Light: Application of Guidance Note 01 (GN01).
Artificial light provides many benefits but if not properly considered, designed and installed can result in a range of issues including but not limited to obtrusive light, sky glow, adverse effects on fauna and flora and potentially be a legal nuisance.
The ILP guidance Note 01 (GN01) is seen as the ‘go-to’ advice for the control of unwanted, obtrusive, artificial lighting in the UK and in many other parts of the world. GN01 is based on the International Standards produced by CIE, being a practical application of these documents.
This course is aimed at everyone who has an interest in the effects of artificial light by day and night and discusses the controls in place that can provide a successful lighting installation mitigating the concerns.
Our online training platform is open to everyone but if you are an ILP member, you can access our courses at a discounted rate.
