Introduction to Network Cabling Fiber Optic-Based Systems
Introduction to Network Cabling Fiber Optic – Based Systems provides students with the theoretical and hands-on knowledge of Fiber Optics. Students learn the basics of cable termination, testing, and troubleshooting while using high-tech analysis equipment.
During this 30 hour course, students learn the science of light and optics. Our hands-on activities give students the experience needed to become entry-level
technicians in the Fiber Optics Industry.
Students learn the theory behind fiber optic transmission systems throughout this course and are placed in real-world scenarios emphasizing critical thinking, problem-solving, and proper cable construction. Each activity utilizes project-based learning and collaborative team-building through the Fiber Systems Trainer (FST). Other topics in this course are cabling standards, industry best practices, cable routing and placement, and optical loss budgeting.
As with all C-Tech programs, students who successfully complete this course will receive an Industry Recognized Certification, better preparing them to enter the workforce. Additionally, students will also earn Continuing Education Credits which transform an entry-level job into a full career pathway. Each Industry Recognized Certification program has been reviewed by leading manufacturers or suppliers for content and applicability.
