For special offers on our popular training courses - watch this space! - In fact our latest advice is to call or email. We have been so busy lately that we have not had time to update the website as we should. Demand has led to some public courses being set-up at very short notice with no time to put details on the site, but if you are lucky enough to call, or have previously expressed an interest, then we can sometimes offer a special price for an event arranged at short notice.
Places are booked on a first come first served basis so please book early.
We will reserve places whilst you arrange purchase orders or deposits - but please telephone or email early to ask us to do this.
What makes our special offers really special is that we really do concentrate on the quality of the training and the support we can offer. The occassional special pricing deal just makes this a little more special still!
With some great special offers listed below we believe it is time for you to experience the benefits of Lucid's professional training and support services for yourself. Telephone or email us for further details or an informal chat on how we might benefit you and your business.
City & Guilds 3667 multi-unit discounts
The City and Guilds 3667 programmes is the UK industry standard qualification, and we do not believe you can get better value than that provided by the offers below:
Only £1425+VAT for both the 3667 Unit 2 Internal Fibre and the 3667 Unit 3 External Fibre, including all City & Guilds enrolment and certificate fees, full colour reference manual, all fibre/copper consumables, lunches and refreshments, - please phone or email to book your place.
If you would like both the internal and external fibre optics City and Guilds qualifications, then we can do a combined 5 day course, saving you not only a lot on course fees, but also often more significantly, time off work, travel and accommodation costs compared to two individual courses.
People often ask how we can take trainees through two units in the 5 days, when others take this long to run one unit? Firstly there is quite a lot of overlap between the two fibre units, so you will only need to do things like the introductory fibre theory and OTDR testing once for both units. Secondly, we only take max 6 trainees on a course, and for a course of 6 we supply at least 3 fusion splicers and 3 OTDRs, so with the trainees working in pairs you will never need to wait for your turn with the equipment. Thirdly, our trainers are committed and willl keep going until everybody has finished, even if this means working from 9.00 - 19.00 every day.
From only £875 +VAT including City & Guilds registration and certificate costs!
Again, this is an intensive course taking you through the full curriculum in only 4 days, but our trainers will expect to keep going from 9.00 - 19.00 or even later if necessary.
From only £225 incl. VAT and including City & Guilds registration and certificate costs!
How can we offer this at such a low price, when others are advertising special offer prices of more than double this? Well we always try harder than our competitors to offer the best value for money solution to your training and qualification needs.
We always advise potential 3667 trainees to take the main practical skills unit(s) first, as these are what you need to be able to start working with either fibre or copper datacoms cabling. As we cover most of the 3666 Unit 1 material in the introductory sections of each of Units 2, 3 and 4 as well, we can offer a special version of Unit 1 to anybody who has already taken Unit 2,3 or 4 with Lucid. This short version includes home study (we post a Lucid manual) and a one-day course at Lucid consisting on a tutor review 10.30-13.00 followed by lunch and an online test - most delegates won't even need to stay overnight. Phone us for the latest dates and we will explain the options we can offer you.
Special rates for delegates who have previously attended the following courses and would like to gain the corresponding OCN qualification:
- Fibre Optics Introduction
- Laser Safety Introduction
- Advanced OTDR Measurements
- Advanced PMD & CD Testing
Please phone or email for dates and further details.
Lucid LED Torch Information
Lucid's LED torches are just the thing for dark winter evenings. They are compact, 'pocket-sized', at just under four inches in length (around 95 mm) and around one and a quarter inches in diameter (30 mm approx.), but pack a big punch with nine white LEDs providing good bright illumination.
The torches are supplied with quality batteries which will last for some time as the LEDs are far more efficient, and less power hungry, than traditional torch bulbs. When the batteries do eventually fade you only need three standard AAA size batteries, that are available from most battery sellers or supermarkets.
Constructed from light weight aluminium the torches are anodised in either blue or red (other colours may become available) and are laser engraved with the Lucid logo and web address.
To ensure you have your torch to hand when you need it, the holster included allows easy attachment to your belt. At the same time the wrist strap helps to ensure you do not drop the torch and it can supply you with a long service life.
The torch is assembled with rubber O-rings and a rubber switch cover that effectively seal it against water and ensure that the torch is at least splash proof, and, if the seals are not compromised, may be submerged in shallow water for a brief time.
White light LEDs are still relatively new and for a variety of reasons they are probably the least reliable of the range of LEDs currently offered commercially. They do have huge potential benefits in terms of high light output levels and low power consumption compared to traditional lamp bulbs, and by building as many as nine LEDs into the torch reliability is improved as it will still function even if the odd LED fails.
Please be aware that these torches are bright and should not be pointed into people's faces or into drivers eyes on dark evenings/nights. Pedestrians should use the torches to illuminate their way and to warn motorists of their presence by illuminating themselves. A bright torch should not be considered an alternative to light clothing for road safety on dark evenings.
