Illuminating Engineering Society Assumes Management of NCQLP

January 18, 2023

The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recently announced it has formalized an agreement with the National Council on Qualifications for the Lighting Professions (NCQLP) to assume management of their Lighting Certified (LC) examination and recertification programs, effective January 1, 2023.

The two organizations share a rich history following the IES’s in-kind establishment of the Technical Knowledge Exam (TKE), as well as the Society’s annual LC study group and on-going delivery of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) required for prospective and renewing individuals.

While the IES will provide strategic, operational, financial and administrative support to the LC program, the NCQLP will continue to maintain its separate 501(c)(3) status, bylaws and its own Board of Directors. The organizations will work to establish liaisons between their respective Boards, and the IES Executive Director, Colleen Harper, will now serve as the NCQLP Executive Director. The IES will continue to host the LC Study Group; however, to eliminate any conflicts of interest it will now be under the IES Events umbrella and study group materials will be developed solely by third-party instructors.
