Webinar: The LC – What is It? Why do I need it?

April 8, 2022 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

The Lighting Certified (LC) credential is the best-known professional lighting credential for light practitioners in the US. Over 2,000 currently hold it and the numbers are growing. First, the panelists will discuss their story of why they decided to pursue and earn their LC even though they all have different jobs in lighting. Second, Bob will present some of the requirements to take the LC Exam. We will go over some sample LC Exam questions and the attendees will get an opportunity to select that answer (using the poll feature in zoom). We will then uncover the answer and discuss why that is correct and the other choices are not correct. You do not want to miss this unique and exciting IES Raleigh Section program.
