ELEA is committed to maintaining the standard it has established for sufficient knowledge and skills to perform quality work as an expert in the lighting industry. Appropriate, tailored continuing education programmes are offered through its members. An independent quality assurance commission guarantees an internationally harmonised examination at a high level. A broad spectrum of both theoretical and practical know-how must be demonstrated.

The number of registered European Lighting Experts is to grow steadily, with the aim of recruiting new members in other European countries in addition to the founding members of ELEA. Interested persons who have aquired a suitable university degree should, under certain conditions, also be able to register as ELEs without an examination. By deciding to have their work carried out by a European Lighting Expert, customers and employers have a guarantee of high quality work.

This is what ELEA stands for with its convincing concept.
