WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This course was designed for managers and professionals, including:

- MDU owners, operators and managers — plus service provider management.

- Managers at ILECs, CLECs, MSOs and municipal utilities.

- Beginners as well as experienced fiber designers and planners who need to broaden their knowledge.

After successfully completing the two days, network designers, network planners, supervisors and project mangers involved in deploying FTTH networks will have the knowledge needed to successfully build and maintain any first mile fiber-based networks, including GPON, EPON and RFOG.

This course is designed to prepare you for the FTTH Council’s Certified Fiber to the Home Professional (CFHP) certification exam. (The FTTH Council administers the exam for an additional $150 fee, payable online directly to the Council. Certification is valid for three years. It’s a great way to tell top MDU and ISP management that you have the skills to get the job done!)

IN HIS OWN WORDS: Over the past two decades, Light Brigade has taught 40,000 students about fiber. See Light Brigade founder Larry Johnson in the classroom (filmed December 2010 as he taught this course in Phoenix), and hear what he has to say about who should attend.
