Providing project support and product information to specifiers, systems integrators, and consultants, Trimner also heads up product education for WHOCO. He provides product assistance and training to contractors and end-users throughout the construction process, and his level-three EOS programming status and Paradigm knowledge allows him to help lighting designers implement the final looks of their designs.
