U.S. General Services Administration Mandates Lighting Designer Certification

07/05/2005


The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has recognized the certification credentials from the National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions, according to NCQLP President Anthony J. Denami, LC, with Nash Lipsey Burch, LLC.

GSA has included the following in its Facilities Standards for Public Buildings Service:

Qualifications of the Lighting Practitioner. Lighting design shall be performed or supervised by a practitioner credentialed as Lighting Certified (LC) by the National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP). (Section 6.8 Interior Lighting, Day lighting, and Control Systems, p. 189).

“The inclusion of the criteria for a lighting certified practitioner on all lighting projects in all federal building attests to the validity of the examination and certification credential offered by the NCQLP,” says Denami.

The National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions is a non-profit corporation founded in 1991 to serve and protect the well-being of the public through effective and efficient lighting practice. Through a peer review process, the NCQLP establishes the education, experience and examination requirements for certification in the lighting industry.

The 2005 examination will be held on Saturday, November 5, 2005. The deadline for early registration is August 12, 2005; the final deadline is September 23, 2005. For more information on the examination visit NCQLP.
