Light Brigade, AFL's training and education division, has launched a remote classroom format of its Fiber Optics 1-2-3 (FO 123) course. The remote classroom format is designed for fiber professionals who do not need the additional hands-on training provided in Light Brigade's four-day classroom course.

FO 123 covers fiber technology and network components via a senior instructor and access to technologists who can answer questions in real time.

"We have held trial runs of various remote training formats to determine the best way to offer this convenient learning option," said 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."

FO 123 remote classroom students can login from anywhere for four hours a day for four days to gain a comprehensive background in fiber optics. Upon completion of the course, students have the option of enrolling in Light Brigade's two-day hands-on FO 123 to advance their fiber skills or prepare for the ETA FOI Certification.

The next remote FO 123 classroom is on May 28-31 from 8 a.m. to noon PST.
