Russian Lighting Research Institute named after S.I. Vavilov




(For professions that practice or rely on architectural lighting design)

Dear Colleague:
You have been identified as a practitioner/expert in architectural lighting design or in a profession that closely interacts with architectural lighting designers.

The International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) has convened a credentialing task force to assess prospective domains of practice and qualifications for an international architectural lighting design certification. This assessment, conducted via online survey, is a key component of the task force’s efforts and will be distributed to a broad group of stakeholders, including IALD and Professional Lighting Design Association (PLDA) members, members of other lighting associations, and related industry professionals internationally.

As a key stakeholder in the design/build process, we hope to receive your feedback. Your responses will contribute tremendously towards the creation of a global certification program for architectural lighting designers.

The survey is in three parts and can be accessed on our site.

  • Part I has four questions about you and the work you do.
  • Part II has seven questions about the domains used to describe the practice of architectural lighting design.
  • Part III is only intended for architectural lighting designers and has 27 questions about their tasks and duties.

We estimate completing this survey should take about 10-15 minutes for non-lighting designers and about 20-25 minutes for practitioners of architectural lighting design.

Thank you in advance for your invaluable feedback on these efforts.

Sincerely -
David Becker, Associate IALD
Chair, IALD Credentialing Task Force
