THREE DAY FIBER OPTIC CABLING, SPLICING, AND TESTING COURSE: ""

*****PRACTICALLY LEARN HOW TO SPLICE AND JOINT FIBER OPTIC CABLING TO BECOME A FIBER INSTALLATION AS REQUIRED BY CONTRACTOR COMPANIES*****

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Will give attendees the key skills to install, test and troubleshoot fibre optic links. As required by contractors working in the industry building GPON networks. Preparing participants to do the job for real in the work place.

By the end of the course you will be proficient in the following:
  • Fibre preparation – how to clean fibres and make them ready for splicing.
  • Cable preparation – strip cables without damaging the fibres.
  • Fusion Splicing – join optical fibres quickly and with low losses.
  • Mechanical Splicing Connector Termination – learn the best ways to put a connector onto fibre.
  • OTDR for commissioning fibre networks – handover test results.
  • OTDR for troubleshooting fibre networks – find a break in a fibre, a bend or a bad connector.
  • Power meter and optical source for Insertion loss measurement.
  • Optical Return Loss testing – What is it? Is it any value?
  • Using visible light source for fault finding.
  • Connector Inspection & Cleaning – identify connector faults and clean connectors properly.
The course is suitable for individuals who want to start working in the fibre industry or those working in the industry who wish to improve their fibre skills. So that they can progress into fibre cabling and jointing, in particular work for a contractor.

This course is a practical hands on based programme. With almost everything other than the essential basic theory being practical exercises running over three days.

This programme will give learners the key skills of splicing fibre, testing and terminating. This course is practice based supported with comprehensive training notes. The course has been delivered to individuals.

You start with an introduction to fibre showing how fibre works, its benefits and how to calculate loss budgets. The purpose of which is to get you to understand the effects of work not done properly. That a right first time principle can only operate in this environment.

ESSENTIAL THEORY COVERED:-
  • Safety general for training location dealing with fibre.
  • Safety Considerations in the work place.
  • Optical fibres and optical communications.
  • Cables & connector.
  • Splicing basics.
  • Fibre management & jointing.
  • Testing ilm. Continuity. Link budget calculation.
  • Otdr basic performance.
  • Otdr specifications and capabilities.
  • Using the otdr to certify and handover work.

You follow that with hands on splicing during which you will make an in-line joint, a patch panel and a fibre wall box. Also you will learn all the tips and tricks of how to use a splice cleavers and splicing machines quickly to get the best results every time. Including the essential maintenance of the equipment and which tools to use. Finally you go on to learn how to clean and inspect connectors, complete basic testing for fault finding and certifying work..

Followed by a series of practical exercises to prepare for individuals to complete these tasks in the work place. Such as the preparation, stripping, splicing, of fibre optic cables and securing them away.

When you are with us you will work with qualified instructors that have worked in the industry doing the job they are teaching you to do. They will teach you in as realistic a work environment as can be.

Our centre has been put together with a practical working area, designed to ensure you gain the maximum benefit from this course.

PRACTICAL TRAINING OVER THREE DAYS

    Splicing, cabling and preperation
  • Fibre & Cable Preparation – Preparation of a cable ready for splicing and jointing, including cable sheath removal, buffer tube removal and fibre cleaning.
  • Connector Cleaning and inspection – The best ways to clean connectors using a visual inspection system and microscope.
  • Splicing Practice – How to operate and maintain a fusion splicer and cleaver.
  • Preparing and splicing a cable onto pigtails within a typical fibre patch panel
  • Use of a Visible Light Source to check continuity and fault find – A basic but important tool for fault finding. And finally ILM testing
  • Mechanical Splice On Connector Termination – How to terminate a FAST Mechanical Splice optical termination used on FTTH drop installations.

  • TESTING
  • Use of the Visible Light Source to check continuity and fault locate.
