Fiber Optic Training
Why fiber optic training | certified optical network training?
Whether you are a manager, engineer or technician involved in the deployment of fiber optic infrastructure or designing and planning optical communication networks, fiber optic training or optical network training is essential to get you up to speed with your role.
Fiber optics and optical communication technologies evolve continuously. Systems have evolved from as low as 155Mbps in the long-haul back in the 80s to delivering 100Gbps and more per channel today. Even the most experienced of designers or planners need periodic refresher training in fiber optics or optical communication networks to keep themselves up to date with the rapid changes.
Why fiber optic training | certified optical network training from FiberGuide?
At FiberGuide, we are very passionate about optical communications and fiber optic training. Our trainer has been in the industry for about 20 years working with fiber optics and photonics in the USA. He is also a former teacher and college lecturer and has conducted over 40 fiber optic training workshops in over 20 countries.
While for many people, fiber optic training is about splicing and installation, our fiber optic and optical network training programs go deeper into the intricacies of optical communications for designers, planners and operation staff of today’s networks and next generation networks. Of course, we collaborate with others with many years of experience in fiber optic installation training to bring such training to those whose roles focus on fiber optic installation.
FiberGuide collaborates with Optical Technology Training (OTT) to leverage their training development expertise.
Our fiber optic training does not end with the 5-day training sessions. We encourage our trainees to join our trainee forums and to contact us to discuss issues they may be running into. We endeavor to write articles relevant to our trainees to address the ever changing industry.
Why did FiberGuide partner with OTT to deliver certified optical network and fiber optic training?
OTT has been developing and delivering certified training programs in fiber optics and optical networking for almost two decades. FiberGuide was interested in a partner who has the experience and can develop fiber optic training content, manuals and offer certifications that meet the level of quality and depth that we are accustomed to. OTT is exactly what we were looking for. This partnership allows us to focus on delivering rich fiber optic training content while leveraging OTT’s experience and passion in developing up to date, high quality training presentations and trainee manuals.
OTT fiber optic training and optical networking content is well regarded all over the world. In Africa, the program is accredited by the Sector Education and Training Authority (SETA).
Are their hands-on activities during the optical network or fiber optic training sessions?
OTT courses are well designed for professionals in different optical communication roles. CONA and CONE courses primarily target those professionals responsible for the design, planning and operation of optical communication networks. The objective of these courses is to go deeper into the advanced concepts of optical networking. While scenario based exercises and demo units (such as Whizziekit and loss test sets) are used to demonstrate these concepts, most time is spent discussing the concepts.
Other courses such as COFI and CFCE designed for installers, testers and network maintainers are mostly hands on.
How does FiberGuide evaluate their training in fiber optics and optical network training courses?
Trainees will work on assignments in class that may include fiber and system component specification and the design of a network scenario. Attendees are also required to take an examination at the end of the 5-day class. Assignment and examination documentations are sent to OTT for evaluation before certificates can be issued.
How long after the fiber optic training should attendees expect to get their certificates
We expect to distribute certificates to successful trainees a couple of weeks after the training.
Where do I find my fiber optic training program of choice?
