WHAT'S NEW? ......


The LIA Advanced Certificates

The LIA are now re-launching a comprehensive suite of fully redeveloped Advanced Certificate courses. These will be delivered by respected, highly qualified, well-known industry experts, all with University Recognised Teacher Status. To reinforce and support the learning, completely new, up-to-date and comprehensive course text books have been written to capture and convey this wealth of experience.

These courses are carefully crafted for those who have a career in lighting and are looking to either develop a much deeper understanding of light, vision and design to deliver professional schemes, or for those seeking a strategic advantage over their competitors by being able to understand and apply the latest knowledge and thought processes. These new courses offer the highest standard of lighting education which is working at an educational level 5.

Work at the LIA continues as two more new Advanced courses are in development and will launched later in 2018.
