Our Advanced Skills course begins with a review of fiber optic theory, products, and procedures. Then you’ll focus on advanced skill development in three days of hands-on exercises that include preparing indoor, outdoor cabling and routing through splice closures, patch panels and splice trays, fusion and mechanical splicing, testing and troubleshooting live optical links, setting up and calibrating an OTDR, performing a cable acceptance test, and measuring optical return loss and reflectance using an OTDR.
Intermediate to expert. This series of classes requires basic knowledge of fiber optic theory and terminology, as well as field experience, equivalent formal training such as the Fiber Optics 1-2-3 course, or viewing the Light Brigade Staff Development DVD set.
One day of classroom lecture and three days of hands-on exercises
