  • City & Guilds 3667-02 Online Course "As I am returning/upskilling all of the units materials were extremely useful in helping me to understand both the physics, fundamental knowledge, standards and overview of fibre optic installations, both internally and externally. The presentation of the course was well balanced and the format of the video and quizzes worked well.

  • "Fibreplus have an excellent facility and staff for all you fibre needs whether it be training purchasing or general sound advice. I have successfully completed both City & Guilds 3667-02 Units 1,2,&3 Level 2 in Communication Cabling (Fibre Optics), Level 3 BTEC Advanced test & Measurement (fibre Optics)and found the courses excellent very thorough and with a good mix of class work and hands on experience. I strongly advise Fibreplus as a first point of call for anyone looking to successfully advance in the world of fibre optics.

  • “I can honestly say one of the best courses I have been on. Course content very good. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable. I will be returning to study further courses with fibre plus. Shout out to 'Jamie' whom I thought was most helpful thought out my time at fibre plus.
    Owen. F - Idea Works, February 2020
  • Two courses completed down at Fibreplus in Melksham, both courses were fully loaded with valuable information but ran smoothly and with a good environment. Instructors know their stuff and they're all willing to pass on their knowledge. I purchases some equipment after the course too, this was well organised and I even had to call to pick their brains once, which they were more than happy to help. Keep up the good work!
