  • 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.

  • "Presented very well and understandable. Very informative.

  • 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!

  • “The course was a great way to get into fibre and to further my knowledge on copper. I will feel more confident at work once i return with the knowledge ive learnt. There is alot of information to take in but I found the course enjoyable and educational.
    Elijah. W – Idea Works, February 2020
  • The whole experience with Fibreplus has been perfect, i'd forgotten what good customer service was until I enrolled with Fibreplus every call and mail was answered instantly and I was never left in the dark. I do not feel anything needs to be improved the whole team have managed this process extremely well even in person on exam days the training has been led safely without us students feeling restricted. Well done all involved. Im sure once the restrictions are lifted the training centre will be even more enhancing. Spot on from all involved.
