This 2-day (16-hour) program is designed to offer advanced
training to anyone involved with the testing and maintenance of fiber optics
networks. A focal point in the program is to offer a general, easy to
understand, approach to fiber optics testing standards with little theory
and considerable hands on activities.
This comprehensive program explains
the variety of testing standards, equipment and technological approaches
used in fiber network testing and splicing and how to choose among them.
This 95% hands on course explores the overall spectrum of testing and
maintenance of single and multi mode fiber optics networks and provides a
detailed overview and demonstration of various pieces of equipment used in
testing and maintenance.
Subject matter includes a detailed study of
ANSI/TIA/EIA-526-14(7)A, OTDR fundamentals and uses, OTDR vs. Insertion Loss
Testing, Return Loss Testing, and Attenuation testing using the Power Source
and Light Meter.
This course is recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor and is sanctioned by the Fiber Optics Association (FOA).
Is this course for me?
This course prepares the student to take the Specialist
in Testing & Maintenance Fiber Optics Certification Exam given at the end of
class. Student will be able to effectively and efficiently identify fiber
