The Fiber Optic Troubleshooting course introduces participants to the fundamentals of troubleshooting fiber optic systems. During the course, students are provided with several hands-on opportunities to work through real-life scenarios using various types of fiber optic test equipment to locate, analyze, and correct trouble related to a fiber optic network.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Class attendance is an essential part of the education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a minimum of 80% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion. During the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements, for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.
