Fibre optic training courses

Astrec Baltic has the history of training fibre optic installers and specialists since 2009. Our teachers have a long-time experience in the field of fibre optics. As a company specialized in fibre optic communication, we have based our practical training on the instruments by Fujikura and Viavi Solutions which without doubt are world’s leading manufacturers.

Astrec Baltic Ltd. also trains grownups who are interested in getting into terms with the technology of the future.

Our training programmes have been developed in accordance with The Principles of organisation of studies and Principles of operational quality

We train in Estonian, Russian and English
