Training Courses

Photometric & Optical Testing delivers training seminars in three subjects: laser safety (with reference to EN 60825); photometry and light measurement; and the photobiological safety of lamps and lighting (with reference to EN 62471). Our courses are presented in two locations, either at our laboratory in Cheltenham, or in the training facility at our sister company Pro-Lite in Cranfield, near Milton Keynes in Bedfordshire. Our trainers are both experts in their fields, but more importantly are considered to be gifted in presenting what can often be quite complex subjects in easily understood ways. We regularly achieve top marks for the quality of our teaching - our courses are anything but dull!  To download our training course brochure click here and for the latest course schedule, click here.

Lighting is an exciting and rapidly developing area - LEDs and solid state lighting promise not only energy efficiency but also design flexibility. Yet LED specifications are often mistrusted. Developed in partnership with measurement equipment specialists Pro-Lite Technology Ltd, we hold regular one day training courses in photometry and light measurement that help you to understand LED and lighting specifications, to separate truth from fiction and to show you how to measure and express the output of your products. An additional full day practical session is optional where delegates can gain hands-on experience with the latest, state-of-the-art measurement equipment.

The reappraisal of the place of LEDs in safety standards has had a significant impact of the process of bringing to market products containing LEDs or any other non-laser source of optical radiation, whether the emission of light be the primary purpose of the product or not. From CE marking to consideration of employee safety under the auspices of the EU artificial optical radition directive, a well defined legal framework is now in place. The course has been designed in conjunction with Bentham Instruments Ltd to provide an overview of photobiology, how standards are implemented, to what they apply and the impact of legislation upon business.
