Fiber Optic is one of the communication media that is broadly used in industrial places. Fiber Optics are immune to external stray magnetic fields or cross talk. This course provides knowledge and skills which will enable evaluation of system upgrades with improved data transfer to overcome present day problems. This Fiber Optic – Communication training course provides an understanding of the theory of optics and its application in the transmission of data along fiber optic cabling.

This training course will cover the following:

  • How to understand the difference and application of both SM and MM cables
  • How to troubleshoot fiber optic systems
  • How to splice fiber cables
  • How to use OTDR to maintain the fiber optic system
