    This 2-day, 16-hour (*Appx.) program is designed to offer advanced training to anyone involved with the testing and maintenance of fiber optics networks.

    This 2-day, 16-hour (*appx.) Splicing Specialist Training includes a complete PowerPoint presentation explaining the importance of high performance splicing and further details the points necessary to achieve these splices.

    Course Description: This 2-day, 16 hour (*appx.) fiber optic specialist course is for students who will be directly involved with installing Outside Plant (OSP) Fiber Optics Cabling.
