It is an exciting time to be in lighting, and it is important you are professionally competent.

Lighting is a tool to help citizens live happier and healthier lives, and the ILP can help you gain the skills and knowledge to do this safely and effectively. Designers, engineers, contractors and consultants all have a part to play in delivering quality lighting which improves our environments and helps our communities.

The lighting industry has relied upon the Institution of Lighting Professionals to deliver training and help build competence for many years. The ILP Exterior Lighting Diploma is the established industry qualification for exterior lighting professionals, meaning you can have confidence that this training will be helpful and worthwhile for you.

In 2018, our team of expert trainers reshaped the modules to reflect the needs of the exterior lighting community across the world. Attend the ILP Exterior Lighting Diploma  and you will find yourself better equipped to fulfil your role, as well as enjoying an interesting, lively and valuable course!
