Since its inception one year ago, the Certified Lighting Manufacturers Representative (CLMR) program, administered by the American Lighting Assn., has grown to include a total of seven sales representatives.
“The manufacturers reps are such a small group; there are only about 300 or so total. So, we don’t expect huge numbers, and it is definitely a slow process,” says the ALA’s Director of Education Nicole Juneau. But the program is growing, and there are a lot of people currently working toward getting certified.”
Through the program’s comprehensive sales, management and industry training,the following ALA members earned accreditation during the inaugural year:
Lars Bostrom, CLMR, Bostrom Lighting Sales
