  • I recently attended Fibreplus for the Fibre Optics City and Guilds 3667-02 5 day Course and left on the Friday extremely happy with everything they provided. The Course was great with all contents fulfilling my expectations. I would highly recommend this Course and provider to anyone interested in getting into Fibre Optics or using it as a refresher. All staff at Fibreplus were great and not only did they provide a good, in-depth course on Fibre Optics they also provided a rapid and very professional service for supplying Hire Test Equipment. I will definitely be using Fibreplus in the future and will also be passing on their details and services to my network within the Oil and Gas Industry.
