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.
The Main Lodge consists of the Great Room with a fireplace and spectacular views of the lake and mountains, the Indian Room lounge with self-service bar, the Dining Room and an Open Kitchen where guests enjoy watching their meals being created while sinking into the plush rockers by the crackling wood stove. Most of the furniture is original. The Main Lodge has 14 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
The Guest Lodge is a separate facility immediately adjacent to the Main Lodge and features four guest bedrooms, one full bathroom, convenience kitchen & lounge.
