Fundamentals of Light

by Justin R

I found ICOL's Fundamentals of Light course very enjoyable as an introduction to Lighting Design. It gave me background information that built on my previous knowledge, while also answering a lot of technical questions I had on certain aspects of the Lighting Industry. The course format was innovative as it included group discussions, short videos and informative PowerPoints that encouraged collaborative learning in an efficient way. - Justin R
