LiRi - Professional Safety Training

LiRi Campus

A unique training center

Inaugurated in January 2018, the Lightning Innovation & Research Institute LiRi houses, as close as possible to fundamental and applied research activities and the High Voltage Lab, an unequal training center in our profession.

LiRi is the university of French lightning protection companies. It’s a place where we can grow together, expand our knowledge and share our ideas by developing our network between different companies.

Each year, our corporate university trains around 100 managers, bringing together employees from different entities to encourage them to share best practices and create a common vision tending towards excellence in our technical and managerial practices.

LiRi’s activities were then extended to include training sessions dedicated to safety.

Qualiopi certificatied in 2020, LiRi now offers a full catalog of training courses, available here.

Lightning experts

All our instructors are lightning experts, regularly attending international Conferences on lightning physics and associated with scientific publications. They are cooperating with National Standard Committees to share their expertise.

These scientists work with dedicated laboratories and research centers. They are mastering both the theoretical approach of the lightning phenomenon and the practical requirements for installation of protection systems compliant to the latest standards and technical requirements.

Our experts animate tracks in French and English, in France in dedicated LiRi classrooms or abroad.
