Tukwila, WA – The Light Brigade is pleased to announce an extended marketing relationship with the FTTH Council Americas to promote the online version of the Certified Fiber to the Home Professional (CFHP) fiber optic training offered by The Light Brigade.

The online CFHP program is ideal for remote and international students, providing valuable training without the expense or inconvenience of travel. While this class will not take the place of the personal interaction available in instructor-led training classes, it supplies an organized, interesting, and interactive means for learning key technical material. This course provides the knowledge necessary to pass the FTTH Council’s CFHP certification exam. With this additional offering from the FTTH Council, members and non-members now have the ability to access CFHP preparatory training 24/7 through the CFHP online training program. The goal of the CFHP program is to address job training skills for those who are interested in making the jump from legacy technologies to the FTTH technologies of today and the future. For those new to FTTH, both the two-day instructor-led course and the on-demand e-learning course will provide a solid foundation on which to build towards FTTH network design, planning, and management responsibilities. For experienced FTTH professionals, these courses will ensure their familiarity with the most current information and expand their scope beyond their areas of specialization today.

"The Light Brigade has a 25-year history of providing outstanding fiber optic training largely in a classroom setting. During development, the goal for our e-learning program was to provide effective and engaging instruction via a different platform. We believe that our CFHP instruction program meets this need while offering a new avenue for training," commented Dario De Paolis, vice president and general manager.

The FTTH Council Americas and The Light Brigade worked together when the Certified Fiber to the Home Professional training course was first developed and will continue to work together to ensure that the course content meets industry needs. The Council will be adding promotional and informational material to their website regarding The Light Brigade’s online version of their CFHP training program. The website will also contain a special discount code applicable to this course for registered members of the FTTH Council.
