This page from Laser-Tec, the Laser and Fiber Optics Regional Center, details professional development opportunities for educators to incorporate lasers and fiber optics into their curricula. The page explains how "a course in lasers can be added to revive any electronics, engineering technology, manufacturing, or industrial technology program" and "a course in fiber optics can modernize your program and increase your enrollment." The professional development opportunities include a laser and fiber optics workshop for high school educators, a free online course on the Fundamentals of Light and Lasers, and a free workshop on Corning Cable Systems.
