  • I'm very thankful for all the help from the staff at Fibreplus, especially as I was struggling with self confidence the staff was always there to help me!
  • 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 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.

  • A great course that was delivered by two enthusiastic trainers with a good breadth of knowledge between them. Many thanks for the training and will definitely recommend to my colleagues.
  • 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.
