Course Description

Fiber Optic EngineeringThe Fiber Optic Engineering Fundamentals course provides participants with information and opportunities to discover the nature of fiber optic cables and the availability of the different types of fiber optic terminals when designing a fiber optic system. During the course, students are guided through the process of developing a system that satisfies all organizational technical requirements and introduces important concepts specific to fiber optic engineering best practices. At the conclusion of training, students will be able to properly specify and select components, design cost-effective fiber optic systems, and the proper use of specific terminology when discussing fiber optic communication systems with vendors.

Loved the use of prop house and simulations. It was great to bring all aspects of the training together in a real life environment. Strongly recommend continuing the use of scenarios!
