Brightside Training Center



The FIS University’s Brightside Training Center is where the past and present merge to create an unparalleled, all-inclusive fiber-optic learning experience.

Located approximately 80 miles north of Fiber Instrument Sales’ Technology Park and Headquarters in Oriskany NY, the Brightside Training Center on Raquette Lake offers you uninterrupted hands-on fiber optic instruction – without having the worry of booking a hotel room, reserving a rental car, or finding an affordable place to dine.

Classroom sessions provide hands-on instruction with theory, giving students the knowledge needed in today's fiber optic applications.

In two consecutive days, students will gain experience with the essential tools used by network installers and technicians. Classes cover fiber optic splicing, termination methods, network testing and more.

Fiber Optics I and II is great for beginners as well as seasoned professionals who want to sharpen their skills.
