Retailer and SME Workshop Series - Switch the Lights 2

Premium Light Pro in association with the Lighting Industry Academy is running a series of workshops to encourage independent retailers and SMEs to save money, energy and carbon by upgrading lighting to efficient LEDs and control systems.

The free workshops will provide you with resources produced under the Premium Light Pro project. You will receive a copy of Premium Light Pro's guidance brochure explaining technical lighting terms, help with product selection, quality checks and design, as well as a copy of procurement criteria that can be used in tenders.  

The training sessions, led by a highly experienced trainer from the Lighting Industry Academy, will provide you with 2 hours of CPD training on the essential information you need to oversee the right lighting for your business.  Some training sessions will include a demonstration tour, bringing to life the benefits of high quality, efficient LED lighting, and how controls can add to the savings.
