Security and Emergency Lighting

____________________________________________Buy Now

This Tavcom certified Security and Emergency Lighting training course consists of 8 modules and is aimed at anyone involved in designing CCTV systems that have a lighting requirement.

The provision of supplementary lighting is essential to ensure that a CCTV system can capture high quality images day or night, and yet it is major component of a security solution which is quite often overlooked.

Specifying the correct lighting at an early stage of a project’s lifecycle will ensure that time consuming return to site visits can be avoided at a later stage. Equally important, with so many types of lighting solutions available, the total cost of ownership of a CCTV system, as well as day-to-day running costs, can be minimised by the correct selection of the most suitable lighting to match the environment in which it will be working.

Well designed, properly installed and fully maintained security lighting is also important to illuminate the outside of domestic and commercial buildings in order to deter intruders. Whilst good illumination at outdoor spaces such as railway stations and car parks can assist in the capture of CCTV images for evidential purposes, it also makes the general public feel safer.

The role of emergency lighting is to allow a safe evacuation of the building to be made when the mains supply fails. This is achieved by the use of special luminaries, lamps and batteries. This part of the course will cover, legislation, system types, design criteria, wiring systems, mode of operation, luminaires and signs, low mounted way guidance systems, maintenance and testing.

As with all of our professionally conducted training courses, your online tutor is on hand to guide you through the necessary explanation of the components, the legislation and standards. There are no prerequisites and no qualifications needed to enrol. To gain your Tavcom certificate at the end of the course, you will need to complete a 10 question, online, multi-choice assessment.

Course Content

A brief summary of the course content:
This interactive distance learning course is divided into 8 modules dealing with specific subjects. Each module contains Learning Points to reinforce the content and regular self assessment questions are provided to check a student’s learning and progress throughout the course.

On completion of all 8 modules, there is a 10 question online assessment, which if successful, results in a Tavcom Certificate.

Module 1 – The Fundamentals of Lighting

Light is a fundamental requirement because without the presence of light no images can be captured by a CCTV camera.  This module will provide you with the understanding of both natural and artificial light and includes the 2 principle methods used to measure light correctly.

Module 2 – The Lighting Industry

Lighting is governed by a diverse range of standards for safety and quality depending on the specific application and installation requirements. For these reasons, this module will allow you to appreciate the theory and installation practices within both the security and electrical contracting industries. In addition, there is a need to recognise the environmental effects of electricity and to appreciate how the governing standards are applied.

Module 3 – Lighting for Security and Safety

Lighting is being increasingly used in response to advances in security and safety requirements. This module will show that designs which minimise glare, reduce shadows and provide appropriate contrasts, are better options than measures that simply increase Wattage to provide higher light levels. There is always a need for power alternatives in order to avoid over-lighting and to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions.

Module 4 – Lighting for CCTV

This module explains why light is a fundamental requirement of CCTV systems. It is light that is reflected from the surroundings that makes the images visible both to the human eye and to the CCTV camera. Without natural light (available during the day) or artificial light (generated at night by some form of lighting system) the CCTV camera cannot capture any images. The efficient performance of CCTV depends not only on the correct camera and lens combinations, but also on the quantity, the quality, and the distribution of available light.

Module 5 – Emergency Lighting

The role of emergency lighting is to allow a safe evacuation of the building to be made when the mains supply fails. This is achieved by the use of special luminaries, lamps and batteries. This module will cover, legislation, system types, design criteria, wiring systems, mode of operation, luminaires and signs, low mounted way guidance systems, maintenance and testing.

Module 6 – Wiring Systems

All lighting systems require mediums for the electrical supply and to carry the associated signalling functions. Traditional cabling systems are the most used. Free space transmission and fibre optics are more specialist. This module explains why the wiring system and transmission medium must be able to cope with a range of environmental conditions. These include both mechanical damage problems and those of the environment that the systems are to be used in.

Module 7 – Management Systems and Integration

The management and integration of lighting with other building systems and services enables its capabilities to be enhanced. This module explains that all lighting systems are capable of integration or connection with other networks. This can be achieved by using simple electrical interfaces as links. An alternative is to adopt bespoke software which can be used for the management of a variety of techniques linked to a core system.

Module 8 – Maintenance, Health and Safety

All lighting systems require maintenance to ensure that they remain fit for purpose. Safe working practices with official documented procedures must also be implemented. This module demonstrates that these issues have a positive effect on the matters surrounding health and safety. Enshrined within this, remains the need to have plans in place that provide information about ways of avoiding injuries when carrying out servicing and repair work.
