FOA CFOT certification is based on an extensive knowledge of fibre optic technology and application as well as demonstrated skills in appropriate tasks.

The CFOT certification has been structured as a general technology certification, not aligned to any specific job function. 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

  • "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.”

  • "The practical part of the course was most useful as I was able to gain experience with the use of the tools and equipment used to prepare and terminate Fibre Optic cabling".

  • 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. Thanks Fibreplus
