Fiber-optic training specialist The Light Brigade, a division of AFL, has announced that it will provide six of its open class training sessions in Canada this summer and fall. The classes derive from the company’s Fiber Optics 1-2-3 and Fiber Optics for Oil and Gas programs.

“We are seeing a significant need for more fiber-optic training in the oil and gas industry and plan to offer this training to our Canadian customers,” stated Jim Clodfelter, marketing manager for The Light Brigade. “Our fiber-optic oil and gas course features 12 hours of classroom training and 12 hours of hands-on skills labs that are designed to provide our attendees with the practical understanding and the skills required to properly design, install, and maintain fiber-optic systems in petrochemical environments such as offshore drilling, pipeline, refineries, and process plants.“

The four-day Fiber Optics 1-2-3 courses, meanwhile, comprise 16 hours of classroom training and 16 hours of hands-on skills labs. The courses, which The Light Brigade says are its most popular, target individuals looking to learn how to design, install, and maintain fiber-optic communications systems in such applications as telco, broadband access, and premises (LAN) environments. The courses enable students to use the latest fiber-optic technology and equipment to learn how to splice, connectorize, test, and troubleshoot fiber-optic networks to increase efficiency, reliability, and on-the-job safety, as well as to reduce cost and downtime, the company says.

The schedules for the Fiber Optics 1-2-3 are as follows:

  • July 15-18 in Vancouver, BC
  • July 23–26 in Edmonton, AB
  • August 13–16 in Toronto, ON.

The Fiber Optics for Oil/Gas courses will be provided on these dates:

  • August 6-8 in Sarnia, ON
  • October 22-24 in Calgary, AB
  • October 28-30 in Ft. McMurray, AB.
