Fiber Optic Advanced Testing w/ FO Refresher
This 3-day Hands-On course provides Real-World Experience to testing required for communication fiber optic cabling. This course will also go over a brief Fiber Optic Refresher Module that will cover some Basic Fiber Optics General studies, safety, splicing and more.
The majority of this 3-day course will cover a range of testing requirements set forth by TIA EIA standards and prepares each student to understand premise (ISP) and outside plant (OSP) fiber optic cable testing. Each student will be actively involved in Hands-On labs to reinforce the course topics.
- Fiber Opics General Studies
- Basic Splicing Techniques
- The Proper Set-up, Use and Interpretation of Results using an OTDR ( Optical-Time Domain-Reflectometer ) on a Fiber Circuit.
- Over-all Length of Fiber Circuit Under Test.
- Length of Each Segment of Fiber in Circuit.
- Acceptable vs. Unacceptable Splice Connector Loss
- dB Loss in Each Segment of Fiber in Circuit.
- Effects of Micro Bending on Waveform.
- Broken Fiber in Circuit.
- Wavelength of Laser Setting.
- Pulsewidth of Laser Setting.
- Index of Refraction Setting.
- Distance Scale Setting.
- dB Scale Setting.
- And More
This training is geared towards Field Supervisors and Technicians who need a solid working knowledge of OTDR and power meter fiber optic cable testing procedures used in Premise (ISP) and OSP environments. After completing this course, you will have the ease of mind that you will be able to perform all the necessary functions required for testing fiber optic cable and Fiber Optic Cable Systems.
A basic to in-depth understanding of Fiber Optic Technologies. This information
