Fiber Optic Technician Training

Fiber optic installtion trainng

This program teaches the principles and concepts of fiber optic cable as specified by Fiber Optic Association (FOA).
Optical fiber cable is often used for voice, video and data transmission links. It can also be deployed in LAN environments to link core and distribution layers. Apart from gaining an understanding of the concepts and operations of optical fiber operations, this course would equip you with the skills to to effectively and efficiently install, terminate, and test multimode and singlemode fiber optic cable on networks.
This program also provides the skills, knowledge and abilities required to prepare for the CFOT (Certified Fiber Optics Technician) certification.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
This course is deigned to provide the trainee with a comprehensive overview of all aspects of fiber optics as used in communications systems.
You would have hands-on actual installation exercises to enhance basic knowledge and skills
necessary to install, splice, and test fiber optic cabling.
