image-of-classroomThe Lighting Industry Association (LIA) are Europe’s largest Trade Association for lighting equipment professionals. This includes lighting manufacturers, suppliers, and all professionals active in the UK lighting market.

Their purpose is to develop the quality, safety and performance of the UK Lighting Industry through collaboration with industry professionals.

The association has recently created the ‘LIA Academy’. Commercial Manager Julie Humphreys says “The vision of the Academy is to develop the Lighting Community for a bright and exciting future.”

Their aim is to provide a central hub for all lighting related learning, not just for the lighting industry, but for the wider community trying to get the best out of new lighting products and technology.

A partnership with the University of South Wales has been established in order to launch the Academy’s new higher education qualifications. These are the first and currently only, specialist, lighting courses of this calibre available in the UK lighting industry.

The new qualifications on offer are the level 4, HNC and level 5, HND in Lighting. The Academy is a huge undertaking for a trade association and will require substantial investment and industry support to ensure its success. Luxonic is extremely proud to say we have pledged our support to the Lighting Industry Association, the Academy and their quest to improve our industry.

We are also very proud to declare our status of ‘LIA Ambassador’. The association will be providing dedicated information and educational sessions designed to demystify key aspects of the lighting industry at the LuxLive exhibition. Anyone attending the exhibition will be able to register to attend these free sessions.
