Fiber Optic Basic Theory – (TR-FOB)

Course Information

Fiber Optic Basic Theory training is designed for new or experienced workers who desire a fundamental knowledge of fiber optic theory and performance issues pertaining to today’s telecommunications industry. The TR-FOB course provides you with the basic knowledge and some hands-on practice that will give students a fundamental understanding of fiber optics and the basic principles and tools used. This course is perfect for those students interested in learning about fiber optic communications.

Course lectures must be taken on line. Upon successful completion of the required on-line lectures and exams, the student will then attend the TR-FOB Hands-on training sessions scheduled. The hands-on training session is required to complete the Fiber Optic Basic Theory Certification.

Target Audience

Fiber Optic Basic Theory is designed for new or experienced personnel seeking a deeper understanding of the installation of fiber optic cabling systems.

Prerequisites

While not a required prerequisite, this course builds on the knowledge gained from our Fiber Optic Fundamentals Course. It is recommended that workers with no fiber optic experience take the online Fiber Optic Fundamentals Course (link) prior to this one.

This course is excellent for anyone involved in the construction, education, commercial, industrial, or utility markets and anyone who designs, installs, maintains, or tests fiber optic cabling systems.

Hands-On Labs

  • Strip and prepare cables for termination
  • Install a buffer tube fanout kit on an outside plant cable
  • Install connectors on indoor simplex cable
  • Mechanical splice
