Signify Announces Two New CPDs


    Febuary 23rd, 2022


    Signify, the world leader in lighting, has recently announced two new CIBSE accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses, covering two topics that address issues and trends that are important to customers today.


    As the climate crisis intensifies, every business needs to play its part to cut carbon emissions. The use of lighting controls can be used to improve the efficiency of a lighting system. Aimed at specifiers, lighting designers, facilities managers and installers, the latest CPD announced by Signify is called Controls, Systems & Connected lighting. This CPD focuses on how connected lighting can be crucial to designing an energy-efficient system, along with its benefits and applications. The CPD also helps delve into how the Interact platform from Signify can take you beyond the base requirements in Part L to create a truly efficient lighting installation.


    The second new CPD addresses the ongoing disinfection challenges posed by COVID-19. With the World Health Organisation  now focusing on UV-C technology as a means of disinfection, Signify has launched a new CPD titled UV-C for Disinfection - General Awareness Training. This training, that is ideal for Installers, contractors, specifiers, distributors, resellers, lighting designers and facilities managers, focuses on UV-C lighting for disinfection, how it works, research conducted to date, the benefits, safety considerations, and applications to help keep air and surfaces free from viruses & bacteria. Most importantly, the training also teaches how installers/managers can ensure safe use of the technology.


    As global leaders in the lighting industry, we have seen technology evolve dramatically - moving from halogen, through traditional sodium-based legacy lighting to modern LED luminaires, and now being used to lay the foundations for the connected, smart cities of the future."

We see it as an important part of our role to increase knowledge and raise technical standards for the lighting industry.
