About the event

Fiber 101

Fiber Basics 101 is an 8hr in-person hands-on class. It can be used to assist students in several different areas.

It can be used to attain the needed CEUs by students who need to renew their current IMSA/FOA Certified Fiber Optics Technician (CFOT).

It is beneficial for students who don’t have their CFOT or perhaps would just like a quick refresher on the basics of Fiber Optic Cable handling, splicing, and testing for an upcoming program.

It is particularly helpful for students enrolled or thinking about enrolling in the Certified Fiber Optics Design - Specialist (CFOS/D) program because the basic principles discussed in the program are the foundation for those programs and their exams. (This additional day of training is available as part of the CFOS/D Course)

Topics covered in this training are:

  • Types of Fiber Optic communication
  • Overview of Fiber Optic terminology
  • How data is transmitted over fiber
  • Types of fiber optic cable and their uses
  • Differences between inside-plant and outside-plant fiber optic installations
  • Basic fiber optic cable installation methods
  • Handling and stripping fiber optic cable
  • Splicing and terminating cables
  • Testing cable, components, and networks
