This introductory 3-day fiber optics course is designed for anyone interested in learning basic fiber optic networking. This program combines theory and 75% hands-on activities to prepare the student to take the CFOT (Certified Fiber Optics Technician) test that is sanctioned by the FOA (Fiber Optics Association) and given and graded the final class day. This course also introduces the student to industry standards governing FTTD (Fiber To The Desk), FTTH (Fiber To The Home, LAN/WAN fiber networks, and further introduces the student to basic fusion and mechanical splicing. Students will learn how to identify fiber types, recognize various connectors used in fiber installation; and install, terminate, splice, and properly test installed fiber cable to existing standards. This program explores the history and future of fiber optics and fiber optics capabilities, and cost of installation. Standards covered: NECA/FOA-301-2004, EIA/TIA 568-B.3, ANSI/TIA/EIA 607-A, and NEC Article 770-50, anyone interested in becoming a Certified Fiber Optics Technician should attend this class.
Course Objective: Program prepares the student to take the CFOT (Certified Fiber Optics Technician) exam given and graded at the end of class. Student will be able to effectively and efficiently install, terminate, and test multimode/singlemode fiber optic networks.
Along with chapter tests, class discussions, and substantial hands-on activities, the CFOT exam is given and graded at the end of the class. Students will demonstrate the ability to build and test a fiber optic LAN network.

BDI DataLynk is pleased to announce that Peter H. Morcombe, pioneer fiber optics engineer, has joined as a Contract Instructor. Peter has over 24 years experience in high tech telecommunications and computers. He had responsibility for more than 500 projects in 18 countries, including the 140 Mbps fiber optic link from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, UK to Stevenage, Hertfordshire, UK in 1977.
Additionally, Peter was project manager for the 1980 ME29 computer project and the Duke University Free Electron Laser. He spent 4 years developing lasers and picosecond streak cameras. His fiber optics experience includes the manufacture of fiber, fiber optic cable, terminal equipment, and complete systems installation. Peter worked with many of the fiber optic pioneers including Charles Kao and David Payne in the design and development of the early fiber optic systems. He contributed to the development of the fibers used in TAT-8, the first long-haul submarine fiber optic system.
Additionally he was responsible for many terrestrial fiber optics projects. For several years, Peter was Chief R & D Engineer at the Duke University Free Electron Laser Laboratory in Durham, NC. His teaching experience includes "Fiber To The Home" and many specialist courses in fiber theory and technology. Peter's professional memberships include FOA, IEE, IEEE and LEOS (Lasers & Electro-Optics Society). Peter has a Master of Arts with Honors from Cambridge University in Electrical Engineering and Physics. In addition, he was awarded a scholarship in physics by Pembroke College, Cambridge and an industrial scholarship by GEC Ltd. He is a Certified Fiber Optics Technician and Fiber Optics Network Testing & Maintenance Specialist certified by the Fiber Optics Association.
