commercial outdoor lighting conduit?

Hello. we are a commercial location motorcycle shop in texas. i have installed 12 led 8' light fixtures outside under the 100' metal awning we have. my questions is i need to run conduit down the outside wall and put a light switch on both ends which is all covered by the awning and no water gets to this area, but since this is a commercial application i need a professional opinion. i used emt between the light fixtures which are 20' in the air, but can i use that to come down the wall and across to connect the 2 light switches? i appreciate your responses greatly! thanks much

Yes. EMT is rated to be installed outdoors in wet locations as long as raintight fittings are used.
