The college recently opened a new training center designed specifically for fiber optic training. Larry Johnson, Founder and Director of Light Brigade was honored to be at the recent inauguration event.  He stated, “Light Brigade is excited to be a part of the expansion plans for providing more fiber optic training opportunities in India.  Being here for the official inauguration for ANFOT, another facility for our training partner NiFOT was very gratifying.  This collaboration with the Engineering College will provide more opportunities for people to be trained, and ultimately employed, as fiber optic field technicians”.
