May 29, 2013 – Tukwila, WA – Announcing the release of its Fiber Optics for Pro A/V training course, the Light Brigade is introducing a new industry-specific fiber training course to address the use of fiber optics in the Pro A/V and Broadcast industries. The course is focused on those who design, install, maintain and troubleshoot fiber optic systems and spans.

The growth in video bandwidth demand is driving the need for expansion into fiber optics technology. This requires a thorough understanding of the types of fiber optic systems, bandwidth requirements, optical interfaces and various types of transmission products, optical cables and connectors. This three-day course is comprised of 12 hours of classroom instruction followed by 12 hours of hands-on fiber optic training including system testing and troubleshooting. In addition, the course covers fiber handling, cable preparation and terminations, plus inspection, cleaning, testing and troubleshooting.

“Educating the Audio Visual and Broadcast Professional in both the knowledge and hands-on skills related to fiber optics was a core target in the design and development of the course,” stated Jim Clodfelter, marketing manager with The Light Brigade. “After collaborating with InfoComm International, we developed a class designed specific to the industry inclusive of InfoComm Recertification Units.”

The new Fiber Optics for Pro A/V course will be previewed at Infocomm 2013 in Orlando, Florida next month. The short course ST107: Fiber Optics for the Pro A/V Market is offered Tuesday, June 11, 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Or visit the Light Brigade at booth #5776 for additional information.
