Description

The Fiber Optic Technician Installer program includes an Introduction to Fiber Optics which teaches how to properly splice fiber, a course over FTTX (Fiber to the Home/Premises) along with Outside Plant Lineman which teaches technicians how to properly perform 'network drops' from the pole to the residence, as well as OTDR (Optical Time Domain Reflectometer) Troubleshooting and Diagnostics which allows for in-depth network testing and aids in the final section, Emergency Restoration where students learn how to address fiber network outages caused by natural disasters, weather events, and other anomalies which break or otherwise damage fiber cable in-ground and overhead.


Through lectures and hands-on applications, all aspects of the growing fiber industry are demonstrated in order to provide a talented, qualified job candidate to an industry which has expressed great need for nearly one million new fiber technicians over the next two to three years in Oklahoma alone.
