It is used by all installers, both outside plant and premises installers, two very different applications, plus component manufacturing technicians, network managers, network designers, etc.

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.
