Tukwila, WA–   Light Brigade has added to its online training offerings with the release of Fiber Foundations.  The course provides an overview of basic theory, terminology, key products and is a useful introduction to fiber optics for anyone involved in the industry or preparing to take further training.

“This course was designed with the novice in mind. Fiber Foundations introduces basic concepts for optical fiber communications – using easy to understand language and examples.” Commented Lee Kellett, General Manager of Light Brigade. “Our customers have been asking for something that would help them better prepare for our introductory courses. We built something to help them and to help anyone just starting out in any aspect of the industry.”

Fiber Foundations is self-paced and will take approximately two hours to complete.  The easy to understand descriptions include helpful examples and animations to reinforce learning. The student will come away with a basic understanding of multimode and single-mode fiber, be familiar with terminology used for describing fiber, loss, bandwidth, wavelengths, connectors, cables and other foundational concepts.

It is available on Light Brigade’s online learning portal at
