Description
This course will cover basic fundamentals of site lighting design criteria; topics will focus on how and why the lighting industry's design ratings have transitioned from the classic "Cutoff" LCS (Luminaire Classification System) to the new "B.U.G." rating. We will also discuss how the B.U.G. rating system has been integrated into the MLO (Model Lighting Ordinance) and how to properly integrate it into your own lighting plan to meet the requirements of your local code/ordinance.
