Your Career as a Lighting Designer

If you are interested in a career as a lighting designer, consider going to an accredited program. As a lighting designer, you can become certified through the National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP). The NCQLP is a non-profit organization which strives to protect the safety of the public through a combination of examination, education, and work experience for professionals in the lighting industry. You can qualify to take the NCQLP exam if you meet one of two requirements. You can either have a combination of a four year interior design degree and three years of work experience or six years of total work experience in a career as a lighting designer.
