The BTEC accredited test & measurement course 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.

Along with the BTEC you will also be obtaining the City & Guilds 3667-02 Award in Communications Cabling are suitable for those interested in becoming fibre cabling installers or those currently doing the job and seeking certification.The qualification covers the basic principles of Telecommunications, Internal & External Fibre Optic Installation.

Along with the two amazing qualifications above you also receive the FOA CFOT certification which is based on an extensive knowledge of fibre optic technology and application as well as demonstrated skills in appropriate tasks. The second qualification is FOA CFOS which 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

  • The 3667-02 is a great course for anyone wishing to learn Fibre optics. Wonderful staff.
    Derek
  • Really good training facility. Friendly staff. Learned a lot!
    Ross. S
  • The C&G course was enjoyable and there was a good level of practical and theory. The instructor was brilliant, very helpful and a nice approachable person.

  • "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.”
