Recognition of CPD in Lighting

The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) has introduced a lighting-specific Continuing Professional Development (CPD) recognition service for training courses and seminars.

Designed to differentiate training that addresses the specialised needs of the modern lighting industry from generic courses, the recognition service complements an extensive portfolio of new and redeveloped lighting courses offered by the LIA’s Lighting Industry Academy – including UK Higher National Certificate (HNC) and Higher National Diploma (HND) courses that are accredited by the University of South Wales.


The CPD service provides three levels of recognition:

Bronze” – which provides entry-level recognition of CPD for events, seminars, briefings or less formal training as a lighting-related activity and assigns CPD hours upon completion;


Silver” – which involves an appraisal of the quality of formal learning materials that are generic or non-lighting specific, or of technical content provided by a manufacturer; and

Gold” which recognises the highest quality of learning within the lighting industry.

The LIA have worked closely with Ansell Lighting, a Lighting Academy Ambassador, to use their course on Smart Lighting as a pilot for the new service. As part of the pilot, Ansell successfully presented a CPD session at last year’s Lux Live event.

CPD material on Smart Lighting provides guidance for professionals on the benefits of smart lighting and offers an understanding of the different technologies available. It aims to promote an understanding of smart lighting by comparing differences in technology and explaining lighting detection and measurement techniques, as well as the best way of achieving desired outcomes.

Ansell’s marketing manager, Rachel Morris, says:

“We see the Academy as a central home for learning, bringing skills and education to the lighting community and we are excited about expanding our offering to include further CPD courses in the future.”
