The SOURCE Lighting Education Center


For over 20 years, Eaton’s SOURCE has set the benchmark for educational facilities in the lighting industry, providing the highest standard of professional lighting education. Since its inception in 1991, over 100,000 individuals have benefited from the SOURCE experience, including specifiers, interior designers, architects, electrical contractors, engineers, distributors, builders, landscape architects and university students.

Our goal is to provide leadership in lighting education and a showcase for technological advancements in lighting. The SOURCE is housed at our 35,000-square-foot, state-of the-art facility in Peachtree City, Georgia. Eaton was the first manufacturer in the lighting industry to make such an extensive, long-term commitment to the advancement of lighting education.


Members of many professional organizations are required to earn continuing education units or credits to demonstrate currency of knowledge and skills, and to maintain their professional standing. The SOURCE supports this nationally recognized measurement of accomplishment through its seminars and workshops, which are pre-certified educational opportunities. The goals of the SOURCE's continuing education programs are to provide:

  • Continuing education opportunities for all who may benefit from subjects relating to lighting
  • The participants with tangible evidence of their satisfactory completion of a continuing education activity
  • Enhancement of the general image of Eaton as an enterprise that fosters and supports the continued technical and professional growth of the lighting industry and related disciplines with emphasis on professional competence of lighting practitioners
  • A stimulating atmosphere encouraging continuing education and learning experience
