Airliner Traning Course

Introduction in fiber optics for cabling systems in Airbus Aircrafts

Easy and fast on-board fiber optic repair solutions for Airliners


Training and Formation Courses

DIAMOND SA has been a pioneer in the fiber optics field for more than 40 years, successfully developing, producing and assembling millions of reliable components. It is in our interest to share the cumulated knowledge with our customers. For this reason, we regularly organize training and formation courses on diverse topics in the wide fiber optics domain. Over the years, we trained more than 130 Airbus technicians and many others from different airline companies that decided to work with our repair kit. We strongly recommend all technicians that daily work with planes, to attend the formation and refresh courses: they are tailor made for them! Usually, the courses take place in our Swiss Headquarter in Losone, but can also be carried out at the customer’s location.
