Lutron Electronics is launching a series of free, interactive online training resources. Over 300 courses and videos on lighting control fundamentals, shades and fixtures are now available through Lutron’s Lighting Control Institute.

The training series aims to help upskill electrical contractors and wholesalers, as well as AV installers, by focusing on specific applications across residential and commercial sites.

The Lutron “Learn from home” portfolio of online trainings includes foundation courses, such as “Fundamentals of Lighting” and “Introduction to Lighting Control”, delivered by industry experts from the company who invented modern lighting control.

The fully digital programme also includes multiple live events and on-demand contents spanning all aspects of Lutron’s residential, commercial, hospitality and shading applications.

“With a global lockdown expected to impact contractor work, businesses must reallocate time to invest back into its workforce. We understand this period will be hard on individuals so our resources will be offered for free and can be accessed at any time,” said Christian Beyer, service operations leader Europe and Africa at Lutron. “Through our training services, we hope to help electricians and AV pros prepare for the future and for when normality resumes.”

Nate Hagemeier, senior director of sales Europe and Africa at Lutron added: “Modern technologies, alongside a focus on comfort and efficiency, have increased demand for fully integrated solutions. All of our solutions aim to put total control in the hands of the end-users – allowing them to manage and personalise their system in any way. Most importantly, we want electricians and AV installers to benefit from our simple, flexible and powerful solutions by making their lives easier, while improving their service. By joining our online training programme, they will learn how wireless smart home and building lighting control can save them time and help them grow their profits.”
