Certified Fiber Optic Design Specialist (CFOS/D)
This Fiber Optic Association certification (CFOS/D) covers the best practices and design alternatives of fiber optic networks within the context of–complete–communications systems or construction projects.
The CFOS/D course is valuable for anyone working with fiber for voice, video, and data applications, on an advanced level to cover all the versatile and ever-growing dimensions of fiber optic technology. It discusses all the theories, concepts, and principles in depth related to fiber optics. A hands-on atmosphere makes you confident to apply the knowledge in the field environment.
The focus is geared toward the design. This includes network protocols, network configurations, optical cabling, industry communications standards, and determination of fiber count, hardware selection, splicing termination, methods, cable system testing, troubleshooting, and proper documentation.
What You'll Learn
Participants will learn how to carry out detailed fiber optic design such as route planning, type and quantity of components requirements for outside plant and premises network.
The CFOS/D also covers documentation project management, making project proposals and choosing contractors.
Delivered in Collaboration with
Fiber Optic Association (FOA) approval school #727
Who Needs to Attend
A CFOT, CPCT, or equivalent basic knowledge of fiber optics and communications networks is helpful in taking this course but not required. A review of basic fiber optic concepts and components is included in the course for those with no background in fiber optics.
