The new online BS5489 Good Practice course is now available for those involved in road lighting design and policy makers. This course investigates the latest British Standards for road lighting and how they are applied. Primarily based around British Standards, these principles are transferrable to designers using other Standards.
The course is not about computer aided lighting design; it describes how to identify the road user groups, their needs and the complexity of the visual task. The course takes you through this process, to determine the lighting class, the risk assessment considerations, ways to reduce obtrusive light, glare and ways to minimise the environmental impact.
This course is suitable for participants with all levels of experience and prior training, whether you need a refresher, want the latest on the changes to BS5489-1 and those looking for an appreciation of basic road lighting standards.
Our online training platform is open to everyone but if you are an ILP member, you can access our courses at a discounted rate.
