UCF Continuing Education in partnership with BDI DataLynk is proud to hold their Fiber Optics Network Certification Courses. These courses prepare the student to take the CFOT (Certified Fiber Optics Technician) exam, the CFOS/T (Certified Fiber Optics Specialist in Testing and Maintenance) exam, the CFOS/S (Certified Fiber Optics Splicing Specialist) exam and the CFOS/O (Certified Fiber Optics Specialist in Outside Plant Cabling) exam, which are given and graded at the end of the classes.
This program is divided into individual courses, each comprised of all topics needed to prepare for the Certified Fiber Optics Technician (CFOT) and the Advanced Fiber Optics Certification Exams that are given and graded the final day of class. The format of the course involves:

Who Should Attend:
The Basic Fiber Optics Networking (CFOT) course is designed for anyone interested in learning basic fiber optic networking and becoming a Certified Fiber Optics Technician. Additionally, the courses assume a basic working knowledge of computers, the ability to see and identify small items, and be able to speak and understand the English language.
The Advanced Fiber Optics Network Testing and Maintenance, the Splicing Specialist and the Outside Plant Courses are designed for students who seek advanced training with the testing and maintenance, splicing of fiber optics networks or outside plant cabling. The courses assume knowledge covered in a CFOT or equivalent course within the preceding 6 months, or 1 year Fiber Optics related experience.
This course boasts these and many other benefits:
What Can Be Expected:
By the end of this course, students should be able to:
CHALLENGE: Ask your Fiber Optics Technicians (from all years of experience) these simple, basic questions below. Students who successfully completed our class can answer them - can your technicians?
“If your fiber installation technicians can not answer the basic questions listed above, why not enroll them in our CFOT program so they can do a better job for you AND your customers.” - Bob Ballard, RCDD, CFOI

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.
