City & Guilds 3667-02: 102/103 Fibre Optic Cabling in a Internal and External Environment
City & Guilds Level 2 Course Overview
This intensive 5 day training course provides delegates with both the practical skills and the underpinning knowledge, needed to work with fibre optic cabling safely. Included on the courses are details on basic installation practices, fibre optic connectorisation, splicing fibre optic cables, external enclosures, the practical skills required to terminate and test fibre optic cabling. This course also focuses on the components, equipment and working practices that are typically used for both premises cabling systems and for fibre optic cabling installed in an external telco environment.
Who Will Benefit?
The course is ideally suited for data comms cabling installers and network cabling technicians who have some previous experience in installing data cabling, but are wishing to seek new skills and opportunities or are possibly required, as part of an expanding role, to possess a nationally recognised qualification.
City & Guilds 3667-02:102/103 demonstrates, that delegates that they have been thoroughly assessed and can confidently install, terminate and test fibre optic cabling, both for premises fibre networks and external telco networks.
