Fibre Optic Test & Measurement Workshop
This fibre optic test and measurement workshop focuses on providing the basic information and practical experience required to carry out routine testing of point-to-point fibre optic cabling systems and FTTH systems using splitters in typical PON configurations.
Duration: 3 days
Introduction to FTTx course
This introductory course features 14 hours of classroom lectures with an experienced FTTx facilitator. Attendees will gain a broad base of knowledge and familiarity with FTTx architecture, network design, deployment technology, and some operational skills. An attendance certificate will be issued to attendees upon completion of the course.
Duration: 2 days
Certified Optical Network Associate (CONA)
This course provides an introduction to optical networking and the types of systems that are in widespread commercial deployment. You will learn how to design, plan and implement cost-effective optical networks. The course focuses on networks that use either single channel per fibre, or multiple channels using CWDM and DWDM technology, providing typically up to 10 or 25Gb/s per channel and up to 80 channels per fibre. This may include metro or core networks, mobile backhaul/FTTA, Data Centre Interconnect (DCI) or dark fibre links and long haul systems that also use fibre amplifiers. You will learn what is required for satisfactory system performance of such networks and how the performance can be affected by the properties and the quality of the physical fibre infrastructure including such issues as attenuation, chromatic dispersion and polarisation mode dispersion (PMD).
Duration: 5 days

One-Day Fibre Splicing Course
This one-day splicing course is an intense, hands-on course designed for those who have completed the fibre courses and would like more time behind the splicer to improve their skills. This supervised splicing course will give individuals the opportunity to prep, cleave and splice various fibres together. The supervisor will demonstrate good splicing techniques / tricks of the trade and the correct procedures to follow when splicing. The course runs from 09h00 to 16h00, providing 7 hours of splicing as much as you can. Limited space daily.
Duration: 1 day
Certification: A basic TAFS certificate of attendance will be issued
Cost: R1500 ex VAT
