TUKWILA, Wash. - The Light Brigade, a company that develops training programs centered around the installation of fiber optics, will move into a new facility next week that combines the company’s administration and classroom training under one roof.
The new facility features three new classrooms focusing on applications such as fiber to the home, fiber to the desk and video systems. The 10,000-square-foot facility is located 10 miles south of Seattle.
According to Larry Johnson, president of The Light Brigade, the larger classrooms enable the company to develop hands-on work areas specifically for teaching certain disciplines.
Over the years, more than 27,000 attendees have participated in the company’s fiber optic training courses worldwide. In addition to providing training seminars at its facility here and other locations, the company offers training videos, CD-ROMs and DVDs.
