The main event in the treatment of my Myeloma is now completed, with high dose chemotherapy followed by my stem cell transplant carried out at St. James Hospital in Leeds at the beginning of April. Although this process was fairly gruelling, things went to plan, and I was able to return home after about three weeks and have slowly but steadily been regaining my energy. My immune system is now approaching normal levels and blood counts continue to improve. More tests are done 100 days after the transplant and so we should know by early August how successful the treatment has been.
OTT website updated
We’ve now updated the OTT website to reflect our increased focus on our network of training delivery partners that are now licensed to deliver our world class certifications around the globe. We are very pleased that these partners are now coming on stream, making it easier for our customers to access the very best training in fibre optics and optical networking. Our partners are carefully selected, based on their proven expertise and their capability to deliver the top quality training that is expected of all OTT courses. You can find out more about them here.
We’ve been working on making various improvements to our COFI, CFCE and CONA courses and training support materials to enhance the learning experience for delegates and to provide our partners with additional support.
Given more widespread deployment of Raman amplifiers, we’ve also restructured and extended our Laser Safety course to address the issues that arise with Raman amplified, and other higher powered communications systems.
All this has meant that progress has been slow in turning our CONE course into an online course, but work on this continues.
