Light Brigade opens new fiber-optic skills training facility in Dallas, Texas

July 28, 2022
A new Light Brigade Training Academy opened this month in Dallas, Texas, the first of several new facilities the company plans to open across the U.S. focused on advanced fiber-optic skills training.

With the support of parent company Hexatronic, Light Brigade and Data Center Systems (DCS) have announced the opening of a new Light Brigade Training Academy in Dallas, Texas.

According to a press release, forthcoming courses at the new Dallas site will focus on advanced fiber-optic skills training and fiber-optics skills training for data centers and enterprise networks.

The new academy site hosted its first training course, “OTDR & Testing Deep Dive,” from July 6-7.

The Dallas facility is the first of what is planned to be several training locations opening across the U.S. that will complement operations at Light Brigade’s headquarters in Kent, Washington.

Light Brigade has delivered fiber-optic training courses for 35 years. In addition to courses in Washington and now Texas, the company offers in-person courses at various facilities internationally, as well as online training.

Light Brigade also offers custom courses, and has partnered with various associations for accredited training, workshops, and training sessions at meetings and conventions.

Light Brigade said it expects to launch another two Training Academies next year. The new sites will be designed to offer immersive training via real-world simulations, the company said.
