Updated LIA certificate announced
20 December 2016
Revision and redevelopment of the LIA Certificate has been announced by the Lighting Industry Association (LIA).
Following "major investment", it is now set for use by lighting professionals in 2017, having been adapted to meet the changing needs of the industry, according to the LIA.
The LIA Certificate now has a modular format, including five days of study to complete all sections.
These have been divided into three parts, beginning with Lighting Fundamentals to provide an overview of the basic principles of light and lighting over two days.
An additional day has also been devoted to Light Sources and Luminaires, designed to develop awareness of all types of lighting technology.
Lighting Design has been included as a further day of studying to focus on the various aspects of design considerations.
The modules can be completed over five consecutive days or taken separately to suit individual needs.
Further to the above, completion of a mentored and assessed lighting design project is the final stage in achieving LIA Certification.
Modules can be completed at the LIA facility in Telford and on-site courses are also available.
