CIBSE-certified CPD seminars on lighting management, Building Regs, Breeam, Leed, Estidama, Dali, IP and open protocols.


Delmatic offer a selection of CPD courses ranging from general overviews of lighting management to focus seminars providing in-depth studies of topics such as Dali, Building Regs, Breeam, Leed & Estidama.

The courses, which have been assessed against best practice guidelines, are accredited by CIBSE and count towards an individual’s CPD requirement.

Seminars last approximately an hour including 'question and answer' session and are typically held at a client’s premises over a breakfast or lunchtime period: two hour in-depth courses are also available as are customised courses which are created to suit a particular client’s requirements. Often an initial overview can be followed by an in-depth focus seminar including practical demonstrations and a technical workshop.


With their wealth of experience and breadth of applications on UK and international projects Delmatic were ideally placed to provide us with a factual, informative and enjoyable seminar.”

Where do you start when applying lighting management to a project? This seminar studies the various control approaches and technologies that are available and considers their application based upon the project type, lights sources being controlled, degree of flexibility required, and the preferred installation approach. The seminar recommends optimum approaches for typical project types & building areas.



Building Regs Part L and BREEAM


Seminar ref: 108

This detailed seminar studies the latest Building Regulations Part L2 2013 and BREEAM 2014 on a clause by clause basis, and considers how lighting management systems meet the relevant clauses of Part L and assist in achieving the highest BREEAM ratings.
