The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) is presenting a free educational programme as part of the LIA Lighting Academy inside the LIA Live Zone at this year’s LuxLive.
The LIA’s commercial manager, Julie Humphreys explained, “With far-reaching technological changes in lighting along with the changing expectations and working methods within the industry, the LIA has strived to establish the breadth of training and education to meet the lighting community’s need, both now and into the future. The free educational sessions at the Lighting Academy will give delegates an opportunity to get an insight on how the Academy is fulfilling the education and training requirements of a modern lighting industry.”
Sponsored by the Energy Saving Trust’s Premium Light Pro project, the morning sessions of the seminar programme provide an opportunity to understand how to get the most from energy-efficient lighting. The delegates will learn the considerations to implement best practice in design, product selection and control strategy, whilst also achieving the significant potential for carbon and cost savings.
The morning session on Wednesday, November 14 will be dedicated to planning and implementing a successful interior lighting upgrade. Whether working towards ESOS or CRC compliance or just looking to loweroperating costs in general, switching to more efficient indoor lighting is a great way to contribute to this.
The following day’s morning session on Thursday November 15 will be an opportunity for delegates to learn how to get the most of lighting the exterior environment. Lighting for roads, streets and other outdoor spaces is an important consideration for councils and local authorities. The session will explore balancing the needs of pedestrians, motorists, households and businesses, as well as budgets.
The afternoon sessions at the LIA Lighting Academy will be dedicated to showing the industry what is needed to be done to ensure products are compliant. It will highlight the importance of a fully competent lighting community ready to make the best use of the latest technological developments.
Each day’s educational sessions conclude with an open debate on compliance and competence. The panel, consisting of the LIA’s Peter Hunt and Andy Guest, will be joined by consultants and LIA tutors Iain Macrae and Bob Bohannon who, along with Energy Saving Trust’s Stuart Muir, will guide the hot topics discussed during the afternoon sessions.
The LIA Lighting Academy is sponsored by Tamlite Lighting and Holophane and is free to all attending LuxLive. No booking is required in advance, allowing attendees to manage their time and cherry-pick the sessions they want. All training is CPD certified.
