ProSource, a national audio, video, and integration buying group, has announced the launch of its exclusive ProSource Lighting Technology Certification program.
According to the buying group, lighting is a $44 billion annual category in the U.S. alone, and lighting fixtures, and ProSource states that lighting is fundamentally changing the worlds of integration and controls.
ProSource claims it has developed an industry-first plan to accelerate growth in the category for its members. The customized content by David Warfel, and Mark Langston, both of Light Can Help You, for Level 1 Certification is available exclusively in ProSource University, a proprietary LMS platform introduced earlier this year. The program was developed in collaboration with the ProSource Lighting Committee and is supported by ProSource vendor partners.
Lighting Technology Certification Modules:
- M0: ProSource Lighting Technology Certification
- M1: Lighteracy 101 – Client Foundations
- M2: Lighteracy 201 – Integrator Foundations
- M3: Happier & Healthier – Light & Wellness
- M4: Designer’s Brushes – Lighting Fixtures
- M5: Designer’s Canvas – Lighting Plans
- M6: In the Zone – Controls
- M7: The Industrial Complex
- M8: Purchasing & Restocking
The training’s Level 2 curriculum is a live, hands-on Lighting Lab experience that will be hosted at a permanent location to be announced later this year. To kick off the program, ProSource is hosting a Lighting Technology Certification virtual launch event to guide members on how to get started with a 30-minute webinar.
“ProSource and Light Can Help You teamed up to create and deliver an incredible educational opportunity that is 100% focused on the CI channel,” comments David Warfel, chief evangelist of Light at Light Can Help You.
“We looked at all the great education opportunities out there and could not find any training that addressed how to go to market as an integrator selling lighting.”
“I am very excited for the launch of the ProSource LTC program, exclusively available through ProSource University, which has been made possible with the generous support of American Lighting, Coastal Source, Colorbeam, DMF Lighting, Savant, Vantage, and WAC Lighting. ProSource U access is free for all members now through September 30,” adds Sherry Dantonio, director of membership and education, ProSource.
