The Light Brigade, a division of AFL, has signed an agreement with Singapore-based training company, iT Learning Solution (iTLS), to provide training in order to “prepare a global workforce for the rapidly growing need of experienced fiber-optic technicians and managers in the fiber-optic industry,” according to the two companies.
“With bandwidth continuing to expand, only fiber-optic technology can deliver the services vital to meet the communications needs of society,” comments Dario De Paolis, vice president and general manager of The Light Brigade. “A new breed of skilled professionals is required to design, plan, install and maintain these systems so that businesses can grow.”
The partnership expands iT Learning Solution’s training portfolio to include fiber-optic training provided by The Light Brigade. In turn, the deal broadens The Light Brigade’s reach into the Asia-Pacific market.
iTLS delivers basic to high-end IT training in south Asia Pacific covering countries such as Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, New Zealand, Vietnam, Philippines, and Sri Lanka. It is part of the Fast Lane group of companies from Germany.
Norbert Jacobsen, vice president of APAC South/iTLS concludes, “With The Light Brigade’s experience and proven track record, we are confident they can provide the appropriate training and maintain competitive standards ensuring that we have highly-skilled trained professionals knowledgeable with the most up-to-date fundamentals of fiber-optic technology.”
