Berry van Egten’s view on CPD:

By | Plenary, Startseite | No Comments

“As a lighting designers’ community, we have made great progress in recognition and education over the last 25 years. But – there is one thing missing: a solid CPD structure. This is essential to ensure the quality of our profession. Therefore, I am a strong supporter and collaborator of the CPD initiative.”

Jeff Shaw’s view on CPD:

“Simply put, I do think that a structured and well-audited lighting CPD platform would be a useful resource for lighting designers to assist their professional development. I also support any initiatives that get us as an industry closer to true professional recognition, and such a platform will certainly assist in the drive for that by helping to align our skills and form a strong educational basis for our profession.”

Tapio Rosenius’ view on CPD:

By | Plenary, Startseite | No Comments

“Architectural lighting design urgently needs a proper, structured CPD system in place, as other recognised consulting professions already have. This is one of the key issues that adds unnecessary ambiguity to this great profession and makes finding a qualified lighting design professional a real challenge for some clients. It’s about time someone offered a solution for this, and I’m happy to support it.”

Juan Ferrari’s view on CPD:

“Moving forward together as professionals is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The Lighting Design industry is going through an amazing time, growing at a fast pace and informing people about the importance of purposefully designed lighting. Giving future generations formal platforms to develop their knowledge and skills throughout their career is crucial for the future growth of our industry. This is main reason why I support the CPD initiative. As a big bonus, it also gives those who spend their lives in the field of lighting design a perfect platform to share all the knowledge that has been gathered through their years of experience.”

Henrik Clausen’s view on CPD:

By | Plenary, Startseite | One Comment

“We now have several Lighting Design educations offers around the world, and we are facing a growing amount of highly competent, innovative young people leaving university with a diploma as Lighting Designers.
The next natural step is of course to establish a CPD program for the continuous development of these young people – and the rest of us!!”

Paul Traynor’s view on CPD:

By | Allgemein, Plenary, Startseite | No Comments

“Architectural lighting design has evolved and particularly in the last two decades, is now a credible career choice. But as practitioners, we continue to lack the recognition we need to be counted as a separate, respected profession. Education is key and so is continuing professional development – the ongoing learning and updates we need to remain relevant to our clients. Light Bureau and ÅF Lighting are committed to lifelong learning and to gaining recognition of the professional lighting designer.”
