WAC Lighting, Garden City, N.Y., has received accreditation from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for its LED/Organic LED Training Sessions. The company's training sessions already have been accredited by the American Lighting Association, which enables participants to earn two CLC (Certified Lighting Consultant) hours. CLC is the highest designation offered by the ALA.

“The AIA's accreditation for our LED/Organic LED Training Sessions will encourage architects to learn more about the important role of LED and OLED lighting in today's projects,” said WAC Lighting President Shelley Wang. “With all of the confusion and misinformation about these lighting technologies, these classes will enable architects to become more informed and educated about specifying luminaires.”

WAC has hosted LED/OLED Training Sessions at its offices and showrooms, as well as lighting showrooms and electrical distributor facilities around the globe. The training sessions are designed to reveal the truth about LED and OLED technology and product applications by demonstrating how LEDs and OLEDs function and how to be an informed buyer of this new lighting technology. Many industry professionals, including designers, architects, lighting showroom personnel and lighting professionals have already attended the training session.
