After seven years in the lighting industry, Alison Miles, Project Manager and Utility Coordinator at Pacific Lamp & Supply Company, has witnessed a dramatic evolution. “When I first started, the lighting industry was very straightforward,” she said. “Back then, when a fluorescent tube went out, you just went in and replaced it. With the switch to LEDs, it’s become far more complicated.”
With the goal of staying on top of a rapidly evolving industry, and at the encouragement of her manager at Pacific Lamp & Supply Company, Alison enrolls in a wide range of training opportunities to stay ahead of the curve. In addition to regular lunch and learns with manufacturers and sales representatives, Alison has taken a variety of online trainings to stay up to date. It was this commitment to staying at the forefront of her industry that led Alison to NXT Level trainings offered on behalf of Northwest utilities.
