Our Lightolier rep, Kevin Brady, stopped by today and suggested something for my blog. Lightolier offers an online education program called Lessons in Lighting. It can be found here: http://www.lightolier.com/resources/edu_lessons.jsp
If you are an architect or someone needing continuing education credits, Lessons in Lighting can count for these Professional organizations:
• (ALA) American Lighting Association
• (AIA) American Institute of Architects
• (NCQLP) National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions
• (NAILD) National Association of Independent Lighting Distributors, Inc.
I think one thing we can do to take advantage of a slower economy is to spend a little more time educating ourselves. When business is crazy busy, it's very hard to find the time to learn anything new. So if we find ourselves with a little free time these days, these Lessons in Lighting are a great resource!
