Our Applications Specialist Certifications are designed for users, designers, contractors, and installers involved in specific applications of fiber optics. These certifications focus on specialized areas such as fiber to the home (FTTH), optical LANs (OLANs), and fiber optic network design. To enroll in these advanced programs, participants must hold a CFOT certification or possess basic knowledge of fiber optics. This foundational knowledge can be acquired through online courses or introductory presentations provided by our school before the commencement of the main course.

These application-based certifications ensure that professionals are equipped with the necessary skills and expertise to excel in their respective fields. The curriculum includes in-depth training on the latest technologies, industry standards, and best practices. Participants will engage in hands-on exercises and real-world scenarios to apply their knowledge effectively. By completing these certifications, professionals will enhance their credibility and advance their careers in the rapidly evolving fiber optics industry.

This program is designed for anyone who is to be employed in the design, configuration, installation, testing, troubleshooting, or management of Fiber Optic communication systems and networks. This includes, but is not limited to, Design Engineers, Network Owners, Facilities Managers, Electrical and Mechanical Technicians, Contractors, and Architects involved in the network design of fiber optics. Whether you are a seasoned professional or new to the field, this course will equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in the fiber optics industry.

The FOA CFOT certification is a mandatory prerequisite for participating in the program. Alternatively, with the school’s approval, equivalent basic knowledge of fiber optics and communication networks acquired through experience or other training may be accepted. This foundational knowledge should encompass the fundamental principles of fiber optics, installation techniques, and communication network management. Such experience can be derived from professional work in related fields, attendance at seminars, or other educational programs.
