NLCAA approved to be a Test Technician Certified Provider

The 2013 revisions to California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards (in the California Building Standards Code, California Code of Regulations, Title 24) include new requirements for commercial buildings to reduce electricity use through lighting controls.  This is being accomplished through the California Advanced Lighting Controls Training Program (CALCTP).

Starting January 2015, NLCAA will be conducting Acceptance Test Technician Certification classes on the fourth  week of the month. Acceptance Test Technician classes will be held Tuesday through Thursday, and Employer certification course will be held that Friday. 

A Merit Shop organization, the National Lighting Contractors Association of America (NLCAA), was approved in November 2014 by the California Energy Commission as an Acceptance Test Technician Certified Provider.  This will allow NLCAA to train and certify field technicians and employers on the Building Energy Efficiency Standards lighting control acceptance tests.  Visit our information page HERE.
