DIALux evo training is essential for the worldwide standard in lighting design software and available to anyone involved in planning for indoor and outdoor lighting, emergency lighting, road lighting and realistic visualisation.

DIAlux Evo example

Iain Macrae is a highly experienced user and long-time trainer of DIALux evo software. Training is offered at three levels Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced. These are available for you to join in a group or as an individual, or for companies to have training delivered on-site for larger design teams.

Dates are made available based on interest and please get in touch directly if you want to arrange the course to suit you. Courses can be offered face-to-face or fully online.

The courses offered are: –

  • DIALux evo Foundation (Mar 26th, May 21st, Sept 24th, Nov 26th 2024)

    (1 day, £600+VAT per person, including materials and 1-month aftercare)

    Recommended for all, the DIALux Evo foundation course is designed to take delegates through the basic use of DIALux Evo. If you are self taught there is still benefit from attending this course. You will learn about setting up simple projects to obtain simple lighting design outcomes, including: –

    • Working with image files and CAD drawings
    • Single and multiple rooms
    • Evaluating illuminance in line with EN 12464
    • Creating rooms and buildings and lighting them using regularly spaced arrays of luminaires
    • Printing drawings and reports as outputs

    Delegates will experience the software live working along with the tutor and using worked examples. The tutor will answer questions and solve software-related problems during the workshop.

  • DIALux evo Intermediate (May 22nd, Sept 25th, Nov 27th 2024)

    (1 day, £600+VAT per person, including materials and 1-month aftercare)

    The DIALux evo Intermediate course builds on the foundation and will introduce attendees to more detailed settings of the software, including:

    • emergency lighting,
    • energy calculations,
    • calculating with daylight,
    • working on complicated building designs including multiple interlinked stories,
    • use of 3D objects with simple Boolean operations,
    • importing BIM files (an active PRO trial or subscription to DIAL will be needed to practice this),
    • detailed maintenance assessments,
    • ray tracing,
    • scenes,

    Delegates will experience the software live, working along with the tutor using worked examples. The tutor will answer questions and solve software-related problems during the workshop.

  • DIALux evo Advanced

    (1 day, £600+VAT per person, including materials)

    The DIALux evo Advanced course builds on the intermediate and will introduce attendees to advanced functionality of the software, including:

    • detailed daylight design,
    • complex grids and lighting calculation,
    • exterior and road lighting design through to complete site design,
    • complex Boolean operations and 3DS file use,
    • setup of templates and outputs (DIALux subscription required).

    Delegates will experience the software live working along with the tutor using worked examples. The tutor will answer questions and solve software-related problems during the workshop.

  • DIALux evo Foundation with Lighting Design Fundamentals

    (2 days, £1200+VAT per person, including materials),

    Essentially the Foundation level course, but as we come across lighting definitions in the software, the tutor will explain the lighting concepts in detail from the science of lighting, taking time to ensure you have a basis in lighting knowledge as well as in the software.
