Tukwila, WA – June 28, 2018 – Light Brigade has recently introduced a new hands-on training course for providing a deeper understanding of fiber optic testing and troubleshooting best practices. The new OTDR and Testing Deep Dive Workshop is a 2-day intensive that will provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to achieve testing expertise in the field.
“We developed this course in response to student requests to spend more time on OTDR operation and field troubleshooting” explained Lee Kellett, general manager of Light Brigade.  “We’re excited to help installers and technicians gain the critical testing skills they need to be more effective in the field.”
Basic testing and fiber optic knowledge or previous training is a prerequisite for those taking this more advanced course. Light Brigade provides ‘vendor agnostic’ training, so various manufacturer’s equipment are used in this class and students are encouraged to bring their own equipment. Classes are coming up in Atlanta, Denver and Seattle.  More details are available at including a listing of all upcoming classes.
