NXT Level Designation Came From an Industry Need
At one time, companies invested in educating their staff, sometimes with assistance from lamp manufacturers. For example, GE had a lighting and controls training center on its corporate campus for generations. Operating year-round, companies would pay to send their employees to this facility.
As the industry evolved into LEDs, more people joined the lighting industry, but opportunities for technical training have continued to be reduced. In addition, the industry needed standardized training, not based on specific manufacturers’ products but focused on the technology itself. That was when the idea for NXT Level was born.
Online training was in its infancy, so NXT Level was groundbreaking because it offered the opportunity to take courses anytime. This was critical as many participants needed to take courses outside their working hours. In addition, NXT Level opened the training to people wherever they lived, in both urban and rural areas.
NXT Level designation is even more important, given that the internet has provided a platform for people to purchase LEDs and controls directly. Unfortunately, buyers often don’t fully understand what they need. In many cases, they select products that can result in adverse effects, such as high light levels, flicker and early product failure.
Having an NXL Level designation shows customers, especially those affected by an inadequate lighting system, that the lighting pro has the expertise to provide them with solutions designed to meet their specific needs.
