Top-Tier Trade Ally Advanced Training
Building connectivity between contractors, training resources, and utility programs
The commercial lighting market is changing rapidly with changing federal standards and advances in technology. To ensure continued success in commercial lighting efficiency, NEEA brought the Northwest together to collaborate and develop The Northwest Regional Strategy for Commercial Lighting Energy Efficiency.
Through this regional strategy work stakeholders recommended that the alliance invest in a commercial lighting advanced training on behalf of the region. NEEA staff worked with stakeholders to create the NXT Level lighting training to enable the Northwest to meet evolving training needs of the commercial lighting market and expand the base of contractors skilled in complex lighting projects.
This program will expand and delineate the base of contractors possessing the skills to sell and install advanced commercial lighting and differentiate and help reward those with higher skills. NXT Level I, an online training that prepares participants for the more rigorous, Level II, launched in April 2016. NXT Level II is currently in development and will combine on-line and in-person trainings.
