The Leader in Fiber Optic Skills Training

Aimed at professionals of all levels, foundational level courses establish and build upon the basics for thorough comprehension. These courses are tailored to establish knowledge for those new to fiber while also broadening knowledge for those more seasoned, while making both feel like the course is suited for their level. Foundational level courses are indicated with yellow designations.

Filter by Course Level

Fiber Optics 1-2-3

This instructor-led course provides a fundamental understanding of fiber optics and the practical hands-on skills training required to install and maintain fiber optic networks. Perfect for those new to fiber or those looking to enhance their current skill set. The first two days of training are dedicated to classroom theory and lecture, which allows students to gain knowledge of fiber technology and network components. The following two days are dedicated to hands-on skills training to learn and apply proper cable preparation, termination, splicing, and testing skills.

Broadband Fiber Optic Technician - Level 1

This foundational level instructor-led course is comprised of a two-day introduction to broadband FTTH theory and fiber followed by two days of hands-on skills training to apply that theory to practical tasks. Completing the prerequisite Fiber Foundations online short course will prepare learners to enter this class with a basic understanding of fiber optic principles.

Areas of focus are FTTH and PON methodologies, topologies, optical distribution networks, cable management and installation practices, testing and maintenance, optical cable types, connectorization, splicing methods, and safety best practices.

Fiber Optics for Utilities Level 1 - Technician

This three-day instructor-led course teaches basic fiber optic theory and the products used in fiber networks, focusing on the proper installation and maintenance of aerial and underground utility fiber optic systems. Hands-on skills training includes splicing, termination, testing, and troubleshooting to increase efficiency, reliability, and deployment speed in the field.

Fiber Optics for Oil & Gas

This four-day instructor-led course teaches how to properly install and maintain fiber optic systems in petrochemical environments. Attendees will learn to splice, connectorize, test, and troubleshoot optical fiber networks to increase efficiency and reliability as well as reduce costs and downtime.

Fiber Optics for Mining

This three-day instructor-led course teaches proper installation and maintenance of fiber optics systems in harsh underground and surface mine environments. Attendees will learn to splice, connectorize, test, and troubleshoot mining-based optical fiber networks to increase efficiency and reliability.

ABF for Installers & Technicians

This four-day, foundational / intermediate level, instructor-led course focuses on air blown fiber (ABF) construction, installation, and maintenance practices.

Aimed at anyone working with air blown fiber, the course starts with a review of fiber basics before getting into the details of microduct pathways and installation, tooling and consumables, different types of air blown cable and units, setting up blowing machines, pre‑blow tests, blowing of cable, and troubleshooting. The course explores not only point‑to-point blowing, but special conditions blowing such as maintenance loops, overblowing, tandem, onward, and center blowing techniques.

Fiber Optics for Wireless

This four-day instructor-led course provides the foundation needed to understand fiber optic applications and challenges in FTTA and small cell network applications. This course examines how fiber works and the fundamentals of different fibers, cables, connectors, and other hardware used in fiber optic communication networks. After learning the basics and nuances of fiber within wireless networks, attendees will build skills and best practices in hands-on labs for cable preparation, OTDR operation, and optical loss testing.

Fiber Optics for Enterprise Networks

This three-day, instructor-led course provides the practical knowledge and hands-on skills training required to properly design, install, and maintain fiber optic premises and data center networks. Attendees will use the latest fiber optic technology and equipment to splice, connector, test, and troubleshoot multimode and single-mode fiber networks in order to increase efficiency and reliability, as well as reduce costs and downtime.

OSP for Installers & Technicians

This four-day instructor-led course is designed to provide useful technical knowledge of fiber optics relating to outside plant (OSP) and FTTx applications, as well as the skills needed to install and test the physical layer for active Ethernet and passive optical networks (PON). Students will gain practical knowledge and hands-on skill in all aspects of FTTx deployments including specific issues—such as testing splitters, WDM devices, measuring reflectance, and bidirectional testing—that are unique to FTTx networks.

Fiber Optics for Data Centers

This four-day course has been developed with two days of classroom learning and two days of hands-on skills labs, review, and certification testing. The course covers the fundamentals of fiber optic communication, installation techniques, testing, and maintenance, with a focus on practical applications and industry best practices. Participants will engage in hands-on exercises to ensure they are prepared to address the challenges and opportunities presented in modern data centers.

The labs provide the practical understanding and skills required to properly install and maintain fiber optic networks in data center environments. Students will learn how to splice, connectorize, test, and troubleshoot optical fiber networks to increase efficiency, reliability, and on-the-job safety as well as reduce costs and downtime. Following the lab sessions, those who have chosen to pursue ETA certification will complete their ETA certification testing.
