Fibre Technology Masterclass Training

Sku: OP-456-61

Quick Overview

Fibre Technology Masterclass OP-456-61 will give you the key skills to install, test and troubleshoot a fibre optic link. The course is suitable for engineers who want to start working in the fibre industry or  wish to improve their fibre skills. The Fibre Masterclass is a practice based course of 20 practical exercises running over three days.

 

Fibre Technology Masterclass Training OP-456-61 will give you the key fibre skills of splicing, testing and terminating. The Fibre Technology Masterclass is a practice based course of 20 practical exercises supported by a comprehensive workbook and training notes. The course has been delivered to individuals, telecom and datacomm installers, aerospace and rail companies, power utilities, oil and gas and military organizations.

We start with an introduction to fibre so that you understand how fibre works, its benefits and how to calculate loss budgets. We follow up with 9 hours of hands on splicing during which you will make an in-line joint, a patch panel and a fibre wall box. Also you will learn how to get the best out of the splicer and cleaver and about maintenance of the equipment and which tools to use.

The Testing modules include 7 hours of hands on OTDR and loss testing. As a result you will master the OTDR, learn how to configure the testers, store and compare traces and generate OTDR and loss test reports. Exercises include testing short links, long cables and through splitters. As a result you build an ability to interpret fibre faults such as bends, bad splices, poor connectors and components. Finally we go on to learn how to clean and inspect connectors, test bare fibres and mechanical splicing. 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
  • Cable preparation
  • Fusion Splicing
  • Mechanical Splicing
  • Connector Termination
