Learning Alliance Corporation Creates Four-Day Fiber Optic Boot Camp with VIAVI Partnership

For Immediate Release 12/4/23 – Learning Alliance Newsroom

Learning Alliance Corporation, a leading telecom workforce trainer, is making significant strides in diversifying the skillset of wireless technicians into fiber deployment. In response to the deceleration of 5G buildouts, Learning Alliance has collaborated with network testing giant VIAVI to expand its Broadband Fiber Digital Installer (BFDI) program. This expansion includes the introduction of an intensive four-day Fiber Optic Boot Camp, designed to streamline the transition of wireless technicians to the wireline domain.

Fiber Optic Boot Camp: Intensive and Efficient Training

Fred Arnold, CCO of Learning Alliance, emphasizes the program’s focus on efficient learning, minimizing time away from work. The boot camp, an extension of the BFDI program, covers installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance of fiber optic technology. It is tailored for both newcomers and experienced professionals, providing hands-on learning and essential core skills.

Strengthening Partnerships for Comprehensive Learning

Learning Alliance’s partnership with the Fiber Broadband Association enhances the program’s reach, enabling cross-training in tower and outside plant infrastructure. Additionally, the collaboration with VIAVI brings cutting-edge fiber testing equipment into the curriculum, offering students experience with industry-relevant technology and a VIAVI certification upon completion.

Frontier Communications complements these efforts through its Broadband For Good program, providing high-speed fiber internet connections, poles, trucks, and training tools. This partnership allows students to use virtual reality training tools and receive comprehensive guidance and training.

Talent Link: Bridging the Skill Gap

The Learning Alliance’s Talent Link platform offers exclusive access to graduates and associated telecom employers, connecting skilled professionals with leading industry employers.
