NAILD graduates 34 new lighting specialists

The National Association of Independent Lighting Distributors (NAILD) announced 34 graduates of its Lighting Specialist I (LS I) program, “The Transition of Legacy Sources to LED,” during the second quarter of 2016.

LS I is a training program that helps lighting sales employees better understand how and when customers should retrofit their facilities from incandescent and compact fluorescent light (CFL) technologies to solid-state lighting (LED). The course is a combination of expert technical instruction and hands-on field experience delivered through a user-friendly, self-paced, online approach.

“Congratulations to the latest group of LS I graduates,” Becky Phillips, NAILD president, said. “It’s so important for lighting professionals to understand how LEDs have changed our industry and be prepared to help their customers make smart lighting decisions. Our training program teaches the latest industry innovations.”
