Will I get to build an actual fiber optics network in your classes?

We receive these types of questions via email, phone, and directly from students in the classroom all of the time. Here are some examples: Will I be able to install a fiber optics network once I complete your classes? If I only attend the basic, 3-day CFOT course, will that provide enough knowledge for me to go out and get a job? Why do some companies offer a basic, FOA CFOT course and it takes two weeks when the BDI course is only 3 days? Will I get to build an actual fiber optics network during the BDI class, or are your courses just “table top” training with all types of fiber optics equipment set up for demonstration purposes?

What do we do in class?
