The Certified Lighting Manufacturers Representative (CLMR) accreditation program is designed to recognize the important role Manufacturers Representatives play in the lighting industry, as well as provide training for those new to the industry.
The three CLMR requirements are:
Satisfy ALA membership and industry experience requirements
To qualify for the CLMR, a manufacturers representative must be gainfully employed as a rep for at least 24 months, must be a member of the ALA and must represent at least one manufacturer that is a member of the ALA in good standing.
Complete required number of training courses
Reps must earn a specified number of training credits in both sales and management and lighting knowledge courses. See checklist for more information.
Return application with three letters of recommendation
The application should be returned to ALA along with one letter of recommendation each from an ALA manufacturer member, an ALA showroom member and an ALA manufacturers representative member in good standing with the association.
