The California Advanced Lighting Controls Training Program (CALCTP) is a statewide initiative aimed at increasing the use of lighting controls in commercial buildings and industrial facilities through education.

CALCTP is composed of two training programs: (1) an installation program and (2) an acceptance test technician program (Title 24 requirement).


The CALCTP Installation Program educates, trains and certifies C-10 licensed electrical contractors and state-certified general electricians in the proper installation, programming and maintenance of advanced lighting controls systems.

The 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards requires certified technicians to conduct tests to pass/fail installed lighting controls. CALCTP is a state recognized provider that certifies employers and technicians.
