The Fiber Optic Installer Certification course is designed for technicians responsible for the layout, installation and/or maintenance of fiber optic cabling systems. The course provides certification through the Electronic Technicians Association (ETA) and covers fiber optic theory, codes, standards, and other practices widely accepted in the fiber optics industry. During training, participants have the opportunity for individual hands-on training while demonstrating individual installation skills, including fiber terminations, cable preparations, fusion splicing, OTDR, and optical loss testing. Students successfully completing the course will have met all requirements necessary to sit for the ETA Fiber Optics Installer Certification exam administered through TEEX.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
In order to fully participate during the the class, participants are encouraged to bring company-owned test sets and fusion splicers.
