The Academy has fully equipped and up to date technology, backed with the latest equipment used by industry. This provides the most realistic hands on experience for our learners both internal and external. Alongside this, we also boast a 3.2 km test and training network with air blown fibre and conventional cables. This comes complete with simulated faults which are added to enhance the learner’s experience and further their skills development.
