In the modern digital world, the epitome of happiness is without doubt, a fast internet connection. After all, who does not think “oh well, there goes a few valuable moments of my precious time which I’ll never ever get back”, during those times when the video is buffering, or when the media you are downloading is stuck on 72%?
Wouldn’t it be great if you were to be the person that put everyone out of their slow internet misery? With Resolution Circle’s fibre-to-the-home course, you can. Those who complete the comprehensive 3-day course will be exposed to intensive site work, which will equip them with the ability to connect fibre in businesses and homes.
“This course is based on true site work dynamics, which includes drilling, excavating, cable pulling etc. It entails the use of galvanised and plastic pipes, trunkings, wooden poles, network and central distributions,” says Della Tamin, course organiser.
Think about how great it would be if you were the one who came bearing the gift of fast internet. However, making fast data transmission and a reliable internet connection possible for everyone requires the completion of either an optic fibre technician or splicing course, (worth 12 credits) first. Candidates will be subjected to a request for prior learning (RPL) assessment in order to assess their splicing ability, this is because splicing activities are intensely conducted in this field of work.
If you are wondering who needs to be rescued from the plight of buffering videos, online gaming lags, and downloads that rob victims of precious moments, consider this extract from Forbes online, “… the rollout of fibre-to-the-home was followed very shortly by the decline of ADSL connections in South Africa. With the appetite for fast internet access – especially to use services like Netflix and Showmax – ADSL isn’t good enough for people anymore if they have access to fibre,”- Arthur Goldstuck, managing director of researchers World Wide Worx. In order to gauge how huge the market is, search for a map that shows all the ‘live’ areas in the country while keeping in mind that plans to lay infrastructure in areas that are not live yet are being rolled out daily. There are countless opportunities in both the business and domestic sectors.
For R8 000, candidates get an RPL assessment, study material, instruments and the field components needed for the installation. This is the part where you dramatically blow the dust off your toolbox and polish your drill machine, hammer, pliers, side cutters, tape measurement etc. in slow motion. But before the theatrics, you may want to register for the course first: http://www.resolutioncircle.co.za/event/learn-to-install-fibre-to-the-home/ or perhaps get in touch with email@example.com for more information before all the available spots are taken.
