Lucid: - full of light, clearly expressed & easily understood
Lucid Optical Services Ltd. was incorporated in 1998 as an independent specialist training company. Our aim is to offer the highest quality training and technical consultancy in fibre optics, copper communications cabling and laser safety. We achieve this through our well-qualified, experienced and expert trainers, our investment in modern quality equipment and our custom-built facilities.
The 'Lucid' brand name was chosen for its connection with light and our desire to provide clear training.
The key to successful training, technical support & consultancy is the quality of staff. At Lucid, all of our trainers are full-time employees, working for us on course development and consultancy projects within their individual fields of expertise when not training. As training professionals they know how to structure training courses and adapt the delivery to suit the individuals and their needs. Our facilities, both equipment and training facilities are impressive (see independent expert testimonials) and certainly help to support the trainers, but it is their skills in training that really count for the trainees. Individual profiles of our staff...
Our trainers are Certified Trainers under the Fibre-optic Industry Association (FIA) Qualification Scheme, and several of our courses are accredited aawards, approved under this scheme.
If you're interested in a career with us either as a technical trainer or part of our administration and development team, please see our jobs and careers section or send us a CV.
