Reviews

“I am very pleased that the course included many of the relevant technical issues that I work with day-to-day. It helps me a lots to improve my technical knowledge and it help me to remove all my doubt.”

I definitely know more about fibre optics than I did before taking the course but I expected the instructor to at least touch on the topic of splicing and tools required. All in all, great course for an absolute fibre optic novice such as myself.
