Workforce Solutions at Jackson State Community College will host its sixth Fiber Optic Boot Camp on July 17-21. The five-day, hands-on course will guide participants through completing three industry-standard credentials for fiber optic technicians. 

This boot camp directly results from local requests from area utility and telecom companies. The fiber optic boot camp provides area technicians with high-quality fiber training that allow companies to keep their technicians local. The curriculum is structured and taught in a manner that enables those with no previous telecom experience to be successful and strong candidates for industry positions.

The boot camp is conducted by BDI DataLynk and is sanctioned by the Fiber Optic Association to provide standards-based instruction, which the U.S. Department of Labor recognizes.

The five-day course will be held at JSCC’s McWherter Center in Jackson. To learn more and to register, visit or contact John McCommon at 731-425-8826 or
