Training and education specialists Light Brigade say that the FTTH Council has approved the company's FTTx OSP Design course for the council's new FTTx Outside Plant Design certification program. The FTTH Council will launch the program, including the training, at its FTTH Connect conference this month in Nashville, TN.

The certification program will require technicians to complete successfully the three-day FTTx OSP Design course, which aims to provide outside plant and network engineers with the knowledge and skills necessary to be able to design effective fiber to the home (FTTH) and fiber to the building (FTTB) networks for urban and rural applications. The course includes both classroom work as well as hands-on practice sessions.

The FTTH Council Americas will serve as the sponsor and operator of the certification and testing platforms, while Light Brigade will provide instructional materials to support the program.

"Our mission is to do everything we can to boost fiber in the Americas, and that includes preparing and training people to be part of the all-fiber revolution," said Heather Burnett Gold, president and CEO of the FTTH Council Americas.

The FTTH Connect conference will take place June 13-15 at the Gaylord Opryland resort. The inaugural FTTx Outside Plant Design certification training program will run from June 15 through June 17 in the same location. Those interested in participating can register via the conference website.

Light Brigade also will offer its Certified Fiber to the Home Professional (CFHP) Course at the Gaylord Opryland from June 16 to June 17.
