Light Brigade, the training and education division of AFL, now offers its core “Fiber Optics 1-2-3” course in a remote classroom format. The remote version is led by a senior instructor and is designed for students who can’t travel to one of the full training sessions or don’t need the hands-on training the full sessions supply.
The remote course lasts for four half-days and provides tutoring on fiber technology and network components. In addition to interaction with the senior instructors, students also can ask questions of Light Brigade technologists in real-time.
“We have held trial runs of various remote training formats to determine the best way to offer this convenient learning option,” explained Lee Kellett, general manager for Light Brigade. “I think this format, with four half days and one of our senior instructors at the helm, will provide a great experience for our students.”
Should students later decide that they want the hands-on experience the full version of the course provides (perhaps to prepare for ETA FOI Certification exams), Light Brigade also has inaugurated a two-day version of the course that emphasizes the hands-on aspects of the full version.
The next remote “Fiber Optics 1-2-3” session will be held May 28-31 from 8:00 a.m. PST to 12:00 p.m. PST. Interested parties can sign up for more information online.
