Ready for the latest in outdoor lighting? Turf World has you covered! I recently received the designation of Certified Low Voltage Lighting Technician (CLVLT) after successfully passing the oral and written parts of the exam given by the Association of Outdoor Lighting Professionals (AOLP). The CLVLT exam is a standardized certification test to address the lack of standards that presently exist for low voltage outdoor lighting and measures the knowledge and capabilities of the applicant. The certification assures clients I have the needed core knowledge for design, installation, lighting options, and safety elements regarding outdoor lighting.
Outdoor lighting has become very popular for many reasons; most of all, to enhance a property for reasons like security, aesthetics, and as much as anything, expanding the living space into the outdoors! A bonus is the energy savings now available through the use of LED verses incandescent lighting. The new LED products offer much greater options for color and luminance, all at a reduced energy cost.
This spring watch for more updates – I plan to take additional courses in lighting design for landscapes including home lighting, resort lighting and commercial outdoor lighting needs.
