Official Program Description

This program combines theory and 85% hands-on activities to prepare you 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 you to industry standards governing FTTD (Fiber To The Desk), FTTH (Fiber To The Home, LAN/WAN fiber networks, and further introduces you to basic fusion and mechanical splicing. Hands-on session will include multimode ISP cable. You will learn the basics on how to identify fiber types, recognize various connectors used in fiber installation; and install, terminate, splice, and properly test installed ISP 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.
