Fiber optics is playing an increasingly vital role in our IT infrastructures and is considered by experts to be the future of data and telecommunications. Fiber optic cabling is no longer confined to the backbone of cabling infrastructure; it has now reached as close as the workplace (Fiber-to-the-Office). This is not surprising given the tremendous advantages of fiber optics, including greater bandwidth, longer distances, reduced cable volume, and immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI). If you are involved in IT, having (basic) knowledge of fiber optics is essential, especially if you want to remain a serious player in this market. The Fiber Optic Cabling course program offered by Kannegieter College can provide valuable support in this regard.
Kannegieter College offers an extensive program of courses and practical training on fiber optic cabling, covering both the fundamentals of fiber optics and the latest developments. In just one day, you will gain insight into all the basic principles of optical transmission over fiber optics. Whether you are an advisor, estimator, designer, project manager, technician, or end user, we address various risks and precautions necessary for safe fiber optic work and guide you through the ‘forest’ of fiber types, cable varieties, connectors, installation methods, and measuring and testing equipment. This enables you to engage in meaningful discussions about the possibilities of fiber optic cabling and make well-informed choices.
Fusion splicing is the most commonly used method for fiber optic assembly. Therefore, we offer a special practical training in Fusion Splicing designed for technicians and installation personnel. In just one day, you will learn how to prepare a fiber optic cable, create the fiber optic splice, understand the necessary precautions, and check the fusion splice. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to explore the Optical Loss Test Set (OLTS) for attenuation measurements and the Optical Time-Domain Reflectometer (OTDR) for rapidly detecting faults, splices, and connectors.
