Fiber Optics (LightMaster) Training


Fiber Optics Training | LightMaster Training Course Hands-on

We created this Fiber Optics Training | LightMaster Training course to meet the needs of system installers, technicians, outside plant personnel, and electrical contractors tasked with the important job of converting local-loop facilities from traditional copper to state-of-the-art fiber optic technology. An intensive five-day Fiber Optics Training | LightMaster training program, it consists of two days of theory lecture and three days of hands-on laboratory work. The lab exercises were created to simulate the actual field environment.

The Fiber Optics Training | LightMaster Training course may be used to prepare the participants for the Electronic Technician Association (ETA)’s Fiber Optic Installer (FOI) examination. This important industry certification is portable, valid for four years, renewable and recognized worldwide as an indicator of professional competence. When thus employed, it includes an aggressive test preparation component with 150 practice questions and examples that reinforce and unify the theory and lab exercises into a keener understanding of the fiber optics field. The FOI examination can be included in the course fees and administered on the last day of the class.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.
