Description:

 

OP-456-61 is a comprehensive Splicing, Testing and Terminating course in which you will learn all the skills needed to install a fibre optic network.
The course lasts 3 days and consists of an introduction to the technology followed by a series of practical fibreoptic training sessions.  

The introduction session brings all attendees up to speed with an overview of how fibres work, what causes losses and impairments in fibre systems, how loss budgets are calculated and the current specifications and standards used. This session includes demonstrations of important fibre properties such as bending effects, and connector handling. The remainder and bulk of the fibre training course consists of a series of practical sessions in splcing, jointing, OTDR testing, Insertion loss testing and connector termination.

By the end of the course you will be proficient in the following:

  • OTDR for commissioning fibre networks
  • OTDR for troubleshooting fibre networks
  • Power meter and optical source for Insertion loss measurement
  • Return Loss testing
  • Visible light source for fault finding
  • Bare fibre testing
  • Connector Inspection & Cleaning
  • Fibre preparation
  • Fusion Splicing
  • Mechanical Splicing
  • Connector Termination


The fibre splicing, testing and terminating course OP-456-61 has been developed for the fibre industry and is suitable for engineers who need to acquire practical skills and managers who need to understand the latest fibreoptic technology. It is one of a series of fibre classes we run in our fibre school in Clydebank or it can be run at your own site.
We are happy to tailor courses in order to cover any specific fibre training requirements that you have. Contact us directly or by clicking on "send me pricing" at the top of this page and we will send full details and sample notes from the Fibre Master Class.
