The Advance University interactive ballast training website has been officially approved by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) for its Certified Lighting Efficiency Professional (CLEP) program.

Every three years, a CLEP is required to accumulate eight professional credits to maintain certification. In the case of Advance University, AEE will award two professional credits for successful achievement of course level one and one credit each for course levels two and three, enabling a CLEP to amass a total of four professional credits for the successful completion of all three levels of Advance University.

According to AEE Executive Director Al Thumann, “AEE’s Certified Lighting Efficiency Program continues to grow in importance every day and we’re delighted to be able to partner with Advance and provide quality training programs such as Advance University to help lighting professionals meet the requirements for recertification.”

Advance University is an online ballast training program currently offered in three course levels. The first level, “Ballast Basics 101” covers ballast basics. The second level “Ballast Basics 201” covers more basics and also features ballast troubleshooting techniques as well as an introduction to many newer lighting technologies. Level three provides an overview of the Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) lighting standard and its use in creating new and powerful lighting designs. Each level consists of 10 or more lessons and is followed by a short quiz. Students who successfully complete each level can print out a personalized Certificate of Completion.

The Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) was founded in 1977 as a non-profit professional society. The mission of AEE is to provide certification, publications and informational programs to promote the development of the energy engineering and energy management professions. Through AEE’s certification programs, launched in 1981, more than 11,000 professionals have been successfully certified.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
