  • It's one of the best places I had a course at. Very nice friendly staff that took good care of me, as I was an overseas trainee for 3 weeks, that was in 2008. I took a second course again in 2010 for an advanced fiber optic measuring course, that I really enjoyed and learned a lot from.

  • "I thought the instructors were great-very patient, engaged enthusiastically with the subject matter and always keen to pass on the knowledge to the students. The practical set-up was totally user friendly and the hands- on approach was more than suitably in depth. I really enjoyed getting on the tools and really getting stuck in with all the various elements of the system. I'm about to move to Germany in a couple of weeks to work on their internet backbone upgrade as a trainee fibre engineer. I'll keep you posted and will definitely be back for more courses once I've gained some work experience.”

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.
