What people are saying about ICOL courses

Fundamentals of Light

by Peter C

"This Fundamentals of Light course provided me with an introduction to the essential knowledge required to understand lighting both from the scientific and artistic perspectives The course was a valuable learning experience as it challenged my thinking regarding the application of light - previously I had thought about lighting in purely commercial terms, giving little attention to it's quality - quality of the fixtures, quality of the lighting design, quality of the end result produced by a good lighting design. I liked the 2 x half day format as it gave me time to consider the course material, the quizzes were fun and the discussions with the facilitator were both interesting and helpful”
