Fiber Optic Splicing

This four-day course has been developed with 8 hours of classroom lecture and 24 hours of hands-on labs exercises focused on specific fiber optic disciplines. Developed as the “next level” of training, this class teaches more advanced knowledge and skills to students that have already had formal introductory classes. Course material is predominantly based on technician fiber installation skills and technology, and includes content applicable for FTTx and DWDM systems.
