BLOG TO SAVE ENERGY

This guest blog post was written by John Martin, Public Policy Consultant at the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD). Under the leadership of the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), lighting professionals from around the world collaborated to develop the Certified Lighting Designer (CLD) credential, a global competency-based professional designation, which was introduced in 2015. The CLD was developed by a task force that included lighting designers and architects from around the world.

An independent global commission has assumed management of the CLD on an ongoing basis.
