Showcase your cutting-edge technical skills, and receive your professional TFS certification as a Fiber Optic Technician!
The Fiber Optic Technician (TR-FOT) training is the second level of our Fiber Optic Installer certification training. It builds upon the Fiber Optic Installer (TR-CFI) training and is designed to provide a real-life experience with solid classroom instruction using various labs and practical exercises designed around advanced installation, and testing techniques and procedures of inside and outside plant fiber networks.
