The Fiber Optic Engineering Fundamentals course provides participants with information and opportunities to discover the nature of fiber optic cables and the availability of the different types of fiber optic terminals when designing a fiber optic system. During the course, students are guided through the process of developing a system that satisfies all organizational technical requirements and introduces important concepts specific to fiber optic engineering best practices. At the conclusion of training, students will be able to properly specify and select components, design cost-effective fiber optic systems, and the proper use of specific terminology when discussing fiber optic communication systems with vendors.
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.
