Landscape lighting professionals can improve their skills, knowledge, credentials and marketability by attending Kichler Lighting’s Certified Landscape Lighting Training Seminars.

With four training courses to choose from, attendees ranging from novice landscape lighting specialists to industry veterans can earn credits toward the American Lighting Association’s (ALA) Certified Lighting Consultant designation.

“Our training classes help landscape lighting professionals advance or increase their number of services, and therefore increase their revenues,” said Ronald Carter, Kichler’s corporate trainer and conductor of landscape lighting training classes.

“By teaching them how to do these jobs the right way, we also help them keep their customers coming back.”Dave Lewis, owner of A-1 Sprinkler Service in Allison Park, Pa., who has attended a training program the past two years, said, “I felt so much more comfortable after the hands-on install. I actually sold two jobs that first week back. It was a great confidence builder.”

During the courses, attendees discuss the basics of lighting installation, learn the differences between incandescent and LED systems and discover how wattage and beam spread are selected. Fundamentals of electrical and voltage differences are also covered.

Additionally, contractors will learn about the benefits of Kichler’s award-winning, energy-efficient Design Pro LED technology, including how to sell it, install it and how it can help grow their businesses.
