Corning’s See the Light Training Program has recently expanded to include a three-day Fiber Optic Installation course. The hands-on course will cover all aspects of fiber optic cable installation in a local area networks (LAN) environment, including how to build, test and troubleshoot complete single-mode and multimode systems. The new Fiber Optic Installation course replaces Corning’s LAN installation class (LAN500). It covers the same core competencies, but in a more condensed and updated format. Other courses, including Corning Fiber Design and Corning Fiber testing and Troubleshooting, are planned to launch later in 2014.
In Fiber Optic Installation (CFI), attendees will learn about cable placement, fusion and mechanical splicing, cable termination and acceptance testing. The class will also cover the proper use of equipment, hardware and procedures for building distribution and campus applications.
“See the light was built specifically for today’s communications networks installers, designers and end-users,” said Dede Starnes, See the Light program manager for Corning Optical Communications.
“We’re in the process of updating all of our classes to incorporate important customer feedback, including smaller classes, on-demand and virtual training options and more hands-on time with industry experts. This more diverse training program fulfills a variety of customer needs, from supplemental product overviews to advanced testing courses. We now have something for everyone.”
Corning’s See the Light program classes are recognized by third-party industry certification organizations, including BICSI, ETA Inc., and the Fiber Optic Association for continuing education credits.
