Certified Fiber Optics Specialist in Testing (CFOS/T) (WPG042-63)

$775

This 2-day, 16-hour (actual hours may vary depending on number of students) program is designed to offer advanced training to anyone involved with the testing and maintenance of fiber optic 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 85% hands-on course explores the overall spectrum of testing and maintenance of singlemode fiber optic 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-(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 US Department of Labor and is sanctioned by the Fiber Optic Association (FOA).
