Fiber Optics Installer
Today, worldwide communication backbones are based mostly on fiber optics. Innovation and the general development in this area belongs to the most exciting ones in this century. This course is designed for engineers or technical staff who may be considering embarking on a fiber optic assignment and for those who have little or no previous experience or knowledge of the potential benefits and limitations of fiber optics in transmission systems.
It is specially developed for project managers who need to have that in-depth knowledge of this transmission medium in order to improve communication within the technical staff, when making technical decisions.
This course is covered in 45 contact hours.
Knowledge of Mathematics and Telecommunications
This course prepares you to become a Certified Fibre Optics Installer (CFOI) from the ETA.
The assessments for this course are as follows:-
Measures your ability to comprehend and define fiber optics systems and components.
- Exam consists of 75 multiple choice or true/false questions
- The examinee will be allowed 2 hours to complete the written portion of the exam.
- In the event the examinee will fail the written exam, the option to retake exam at a later date is available and additional fee will apply.
Measures your ability to perform an assigned task based on a skill and proficiency level appropriate to this training.
- Must successfully complete seven classroom tasks to industry standards.
- Must successfully identify selected fiber optic system components.
- Each task takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
