|"PREPARE TO LEARN"
|If you are primarily interested in obtaining basic fiber optic
networking knowledge then the CFOT course will suffice.
Suggestion # 2
If your mission is primarily inside plant installations, with testing and
maintenance with some fusion splicing, we recommend the CFOT,
CFOS/T, and the CFOS/S courses.
Suggestion # 3
If your mission is primarily outside plant installations, we recommend
the CFOT and the CFOS/O courses.
Suggestion # 4
If you plan to do all aspects of fiber optics networking for both inside
and outsideapplications, we recommend all of the courses. Because
it is difficult to attend all courses at once, you should consider the
CFOT followed by the CFOS/T and attend the others at a later date
Note: Seldom do we offer all four courses together
unless by special request. But, if we do, you should take
advantage of this opportunity receive all 4 certifications.
Does the 3-day* CFOT teach me everything I need to
No. The CFOT course is a basic introductory course with a brief
overview of fiber optics networking including fusion splicing,
installation, testing and troubleshooting. Hands -on activities
requires the student to install, terminate, test, and troubleshoot a MM

Forget about it! It is twice as expensive. If you are a veteran, would you want
someone watching your "6" that just learned how to shoot his weapon from an on-line
weapons training course? Would you be happy to hear that the Doctor that is working to
save your life just received his certificate from an on line physician's course?
Learning how to install, test, troubleshoot, and repair fiber is
a doing process and NOT a watching process!
