NeST Institute of Fiber Optic Technology

NeST Institute of Fiber Optic Technology Pvt Ltd.  (NIFOT) is a Joint venture of NeST Group, India and The Light Brigade Inc, USA to provide world class training on fiber optic technology.  NIFOT aims to produce world class Fiber Optic experts out of the trainees.  Whether your application is voice, video, and/or data, or you are a service provider, contractor, end user or a beginner, NIFOT can provide critical training for your personnel to lower operating costs and improve installation efficiency.

Our professional instructors and technicians come with a strong backup from a 22 year fiber optic background of NeST and are technically skilled and have a variety of real world practical experience in all aspects of fiber optics. With experience in applications such as communications, signaling, security, and network control, our instructors provide valuable insight into the design, installation, and operation of state-of-the-art fiber optic systems.

Extensive hands-on training sessions help our attendees to learn fiber optics by doing rather than watching. Attendees spend class time building, testing, and troubleshooting an actual fibre optic system. In each of our courses, the ratio of students to instructors during the hands-on sessions assures that there is direct personal interaction and attention to each student.

In our training classes, you receive an objective viewpoint, not a sales pitch. We teach fiber techniques that are applicable to any product, and select the best available equipment and supplies from many different manufacturers. You can choose to develop your skills using our state-of-the art equipment and accessories, or bring your own to learn how to use it more effectively.

Our course materials are constantly updated to stay in step with current and emerging technologies. All of our materials and techniques are written and taught based on the latest standards, recommendations, and codes from ANSI, ITU, TIA, IEEE, IEC, Telcordia, MSHA, NEC, NESC and Others.

Many of our classes are eligible for independent certifications through third-party industry organizations and groups like ETA, BICSI, UTC, FTTH Council etc. These certifications are typically progressive levels and show competency in hands-on skills and technical knowledge. In addition, many of our courses are eligible for BICSI Continuing Education Credits (CECs), SCTE Recertification Units (RUs), IMSA Technical Advancement Recognition Points (TARPs), and Infocomm Recertification Units (RUs).
