FOA CFOS certification is based on an extensive knowledge of fibre optics technology and application as well as demonstrated skills in appropriate tasks. .
This is the specialist certification covering fibre optic testing and provides additional training for those who wish to increase their understanding or specialise in the field of Fibre Optic testing. This course covers testing techniques and the use of standard Fibre Optic test equipment (VLS/VFL, Light Source & Power Meter, and OTDR). In addition to time spent on chromatic and polarisation mode dispersion and FTTX testing
It's one of the best places I had a course at. Very nice friendly staff that took good care of me, as I was an overseas trainee for 3 weeks, that was in 2008.
I took a second course again in 2010 for an advanced fiber optic measuring course, that I really enjoyed and learned a lot from.
"I thought the instructors were great-very patient, engaged enthusiastically with the subject matter and always keen to pass on the knowledge to the students. The practical set-up was totally user friendly and the hands- on approach was more than suitably in depth. I really enjoyed getting on the tools and really getting stuck in with all the various elements of the system. I'm about to move to Germany in a couple of weeks to work on their internet backbone upgrade as a trainee fibre engineer. I'll keep you posted and will definitely be back for more courses once I've gained some work experience.”
Really good training facility. Friendly staff. Learned a lot!
A training course which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Lots of practical mixed with the necessary theory.
The instructors were great and explained all concepts really well... Most important, I am able to apply the knowledge at work.
Fibreplus have an excellent facility and staff for all you fibre needs whether it be training purchasing or general sound advice. I have successfully completed both City & Guilds 3667-02 Units 1,2,&3 Level 2 in Communication Cabling (Fibre Optics)
Level 3 BTEC Advanced test & Measurement (fibre Optics)and found the courses excellent very thorough and with a good mix of class work and hands on experience.
I strongly advise Fibreplus as a first point of call for anyone looking to successfully advance in the world of fibre optics.
