LC Study Group 2019

Tuesday, September 3, 2019 - Thursday, October 31, 2019

The IES LC Study Group is designed for those planning to take the 2019 National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP) lighting certification exam. For the first time we are also opening it up to those who wish to improve their lighting knowledge or gauge if they are adequately prepared to write the exam in 2019. Registration to take the exam is separate please go to www.ncqlp.org to register.

The IES is offering a revised and updated LC Study Group, an online, web-based support program. Enrollment in the LC Study Group is not mandatory in order to take the NCQLP exam. Please note this is a Study Group, not a course, and the participants are expected to have a solid lighting knowledge to participate.

NEW in 2019: Due to the increased interest in participating in the IES LC Study Group and the increase of those who are not fully prepared to write the NCQLP Exam, we have initiated a new LC Study Group Entrance Exam. Acceptance to participate in the Study Group is restricted to those who score 72% and higher on the Open Book, 25 multiple choice question exam. Those who fail to reach 72% (18/25) but score 52% (13/25) or higher will be given a second opportunity for entrance. For those who score less than 52%, we suggest you continue with your reading and studying and reapply in 2020. (There is no cost to take this Entry Exam). To request an Entry Exam, please contact Tom Butters, Director of IES Education at tbutters@ies.org.

Successful completion and final payment must be processed by September 1, 2019 to gain entrance. Please allow one complete week for processing. Applications after August 26th will not be accepted.

Note: This is only to participate in the IES LC Study Group. To register for the NCQLP Exam please go to www.ncqlp.org
