Suggestion # 1
If you are primarily interested in obtaining basic fiber optic networking knowledge then the CFOT
course will suffice.
Suggestion # 2
If your mission is primarily inside plant installations, with testing and maintenance with some fusion
splicing, we recommend the CFOT, CFOS/T, and the CFOS/S courses.
Suggestion # 3
If your mission is primarily outside plant installations, we recommend the CFOT and the
Suggestion # 4
If you plan to do all aspects of fiber optics networking for both inside and outside
applications, we recommend all of the courses. Because it is difficult to attend all courses
at once, you should consider the CFOT followed by the CFOS/T and attend the others
at a later date if possible. Note: Seldom do we offer all four courses together
unless by special request. But, if we do, you should take advantage of this opportunity
receive all 4 certifications.
Does the 3-day* CFOT teach me everything I need to know?
No. The CFOT course is a basic introductory course with a brief overview of fiber
optics networking including fusion splicing, installation, testing and troubleshooting. Hands -on
activities requires the student to install, terminate, test, and troubleshoot a MM network.
What are the costs for the courses (most locations)?
CFOT (3-day*) - $700.00/student - Basic Course
CFOS/T (2-day*) - $675.00/student - Testing Specialist Course
CFOS/S (2-day*) - $675.00/student - Splicing Specialist Course
CFOS/O (2-day*) - $775.00/student - OSP Specialist Course
