    You must go to California Landscape lighting Superbowl of lighting. This was the most Comprehensive one day seminar Ive ever been to. Some Manufactures have training but they want you to use their product. CLL dosent push one product, just all the products they sell. Give them a look.

    all manufacturers offer classes for beginning contractors.

    Some of the larger suppliers do as well... remember, as eskerlite said, they will emphasize thier products, but the principals apply to all brands.

    we attended 2 seminars altho they were geared more at marketing than anything. We did alot of research and homework on lighting as well as read books and got some hands on with an experienced person.

    We adapted some others techniques and created something that works well for us as well as providing high end work thats has superior workmanship to any in the area.

    Learn learn lear is the best you can do. Load your gun before you shoot.
