First ever on-demand CIBSE accredited CPDs available on the Signify Lighting Academy


    At Signify, like several other innovations, we are thrilled to announce the first-ever on-demand CIBSE accredited Continuous Professional Development (CPD) courses on the Signify Learning Academy. The five new courses will arm specifiers, lighting designers, facilities managers, and installers with the knowledge to be able to respond to a range of business needs from meeting sustainability goals to protection from COVID-19.


    It’s no news that the business environment is dynamic and ever-evolving, more so since the pandemic. So, every business needs to cater to the changing needs of its customers – almost urgently! The lighting sector is no different. In fact, in the years that I have spent in the lighting industry I have seen the industry evolve at such a rapid pace!


    From adapting to the pandemic to taking definite action towards climate crisis, the industry has been at the forefront of innovating – from solutions to products.


    More about the academy


    The Signify Lighting Academy offers a comprehensive range of educational resources to advance lighting knowledge. These educational lighting materials are provided by world-class lighting experts and professionals that come with assessment tests and certificate handouts at the end of each course. Five of which are now CIBSE certified CPDs.

    The Signify Lighting Academy gives customers access to hundreds of courses around lighting innovations, soft skills, application training, and more, all for free. These courses allow anyone to maintain or further their qualifications whenever and wherever suits them. We are enormously proud of this first step, and we aim to continue to grow our library of accredited courses."


    Jaap Schuuring,

    Head of Customer Learning, Signify

    Our 5 new courses are available on-demand, 24/7, which is an industry first! These courses are in addition to an existing portfolio of 700 courses the Signify Lighting Academy delivers trainings for, to thousands of subscribers.


    These trainings are available on demand and at the end of the training, a certificate is generated confirming course completion and the number of hours completed.


    " We are proud to work closely with CIBSE to provide the first ever on-demand digital CPDs. With the CPDs now being available on demand, we are excited to offer the industry continuous learning and development on the go, and play our part in making the industry grow.

    It is our aim is to create a complete programme of CPDs covering the entire spectrum of lighting. We see it as an important part of our role to increase knowledge and raise technical standards for the lighting industry."


    Nicky Hagan

    Sales Manager Professional Trade, Signify UKI

    These CPDs also affirm our dedication to developing long-term partnerships with our customers and supporting them in delivering their lighting visions - from design through to installation and maintenance as these CPD meet a pressing need for up-to-date guidance on the latest technology and legislation.”


    The list of on-demand CPDs announced includes:


    • With the World Health Organization now focusing on UV-C technology as a means of disinfection, a recorded webinar UV-C for Disinfection - General Awareness Training, has been made available.
    • Addressing the ongoing disinfection challenges posed by COVID-19, the CPD titled Airborne transmission why UV air disinfection is essential? is a webinar from Harvard Professor, Edward Nardell, about the necessity of UV-C technology from a medical perspective and how UV-C technology is readily available, safe for room occupants, cost-effective, and can be implemented today.


    • Responding to the growing need for better connectivity, the CPD titled Trulifi by Signify offers an introduction to LiFi, how coworking, equipped with Trulifi, isn’t just the preserve of the jet-set and digital nomads.
    • For those installers interested in biophilic design and natural light indoors, the CPD titled Biophilic Design addresses how enhancing our connection with nature is more than simply adding plants and that it’s a design ethos that can appeal to us all.


    • The Connected Lighting CPD focuses on how connected lighting can be crucial to designing an energy-efficient system, along with its benefits and applications.


    All courses listed above are 1-hour long sessions.

    ‘’Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a long-term commitment to undertake the systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills. It is about learning and putting into practice new competences year after year and investing in your future.''

    The on-demand digital CPDs are a great initiative by Signify to enable installers, specifiers and the whole community to learn about the latest technologies and innovations and move with the times, as this also aligns closely with our agenda at CIBSE. I encourage other members to also introduce more digital CPDs, on an ongoing basis.''
