  • 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!

  • “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.

  • “I first used Fibreplus for training 2 years ago. The training was fantastic and well delivered. I have just purchased test equipment from them which and their expertise has been invaluable for ensuring that I have ordered the right thing first time. I would recommend Fibreplus for both training and equipment sales.
