Stanpro Training and Lighting Solutions Centre

Our state-of-the-art training and lighting solutions centre is an expression of our industry experience and our never-ending commitment to lighting innovation. Our corporate mission of “Bringing designs to light” is achieved by offering a dynamic hands-on experience in an interactive learning environment and training theatre, led by a lighting certified professional trainer and analyst.
At Stanpro we had the aim to create a unique space that demonstrates lighting in many different types of environments: from design ideas to real life applications, as well as using a variety of lighting fixtures in order to achieve architectural brilliance. Coupled with this inspiration area, we designed a warm, comfortable and safe space where technical and certification training takes place: training at all levels from novice to expert and for a wide audience ranging from our own staff to wholesalers, architects, designers, engineering firms, contractors and other lighting professionals

Our Professional Trainer: Peer Eric Moldvar

With an academic background in engineering and administration, Eric Moldvar has worked for more than 30 years within various organizations in all fields of lighting, including retail, distribution and manufacturing sectors. His in-depth knowledge of light sources, lighting calculation methods and various manufacturing processes makes him an indispensable industry leading resource.

A past member of the Montreal chapter of the IES Administrative Council of the IES, today he devotes much of his time to training and certification. As well as lecturing at the Montreal chapter of IES and the École Polytechnique de Montréal, he is an authorized AGI32 trainer of Lighting Analysts.

Advantages of hands-on training

Many of us have spent countless hours reading technical documents and grappling with abstract concepts. However, when it comes down to learning skills, not theory, processes instead of philosophy, listening to someone tell you about it, is simply not effective.
Hands-on learning or experiential learning is one of few learning methods that can have a dramatic impact on the participant’s mindset. Our visualizations used in these hands-on training sessions, based on real life scenarios, will reflect both challenges and opportunities faced in professional lighting projects, and the practical solutions to overcome and embrace them.
Hands-on training will include fundament theory, but by moving beyond theory to the realm of learning by doing. Experiential learning is highly effective in nature, influencing creative thinking as well as enhancing knowledge and skills.

“The difference between something good and something great is attention to detail.”
Charles R. Swindoll

The nitty-gritty, its not all about creativity!

Creativity in lighting is a function of knowledge, curiosity, imagination, and evaluation. The greater your knowledge base and grasp of detail, the more ideas, patterns, and combinations you can achieve, which then correlates to creating new and innovative spaces.

Advance your knowledge of complex lighting technology and energy-efficient strategies during one of our comprehensive training sessions and learn to:

  • Identify the different artificial sources of light and correctly recommending them according to the different lighting objectives.
  • Distinguish and understand the different principles of light control associated with the components of a luminaire.
  • Understand the interaction of different parameters used to calculate a level of illumination.
  • Analyse illumination level calculations for indoor and outdoor spaces.

Stanpro are dedication to the pursuit of knowledge, design and innovation exemplified by our hands-on state-of-the-art training and lighting solutions facility in Montreal. We are committed to the continual involvement of, and interaction with customers from coast to coast to experience the Stanpro difference. We believe that this is a huge step towards greater brand recognition, customer satisfaction and the positioning Stanpro as a leader in the Canadian lighting industry.
