Course Description Summary: This 3-day* fiber optics course is designed for anyone interested in becoming a Certified Fiber Optics Technician. This program
combines theory and 85% hands-on activities to prepare the student to take the CFOT (Certified Fiber Optics Technician) test that is sanctioned by the FOA (Fiber
Optics Association) and given and graded the final class day. This course also introduces the student to industry standards governing FTTD (Fiber To The Desk),
FTTH (Fiber To The Home, LAN/WAN fiber networks, and further introduces the student to basic fusion and mechanical splicing.  Supplemental hands-on session will
include multimode OSP cable. Students will learn how to identify fiber types, recognize various connectors used in fiber installation; and install, terminate, splice, and
properly test installed OSP fiber cable to existing standards. This program explores the history and future of fiber optics and fiber optics capabilities. Standards
covered: Introduction to ANSI/EIA/TIA 568 Standards, NECA/FOA-301-2004, EIA/TIA 568-B.3, ANSI/TIA/EIA 607-A (Ground & Bonding), and NEC Article 770-50.  
Additional supplemental study will include both mechanical and fusion splicing techniques along with actual OTDR trace sessions.  Course fee includes all books study
materials.  

Course Objective: Program prepares the student to take the CFOT (Certified Fiber Optics Technician) exam given and graded at the end of class. Student will be
able to effectively and efficiently install, terminate, and test multimode or singlemode fiber optic networks to existing standards.
