FOIT - Fiber Optics Installer Theory (FOIT)

Point-Productions


Description

The Online Fiber Optics Training Course includes eighteen modules, covering Industry Standards and Codes ANSI/TIA/EIA & TSBs, NEC, Fiber construction and installation safety standards. Dr. Sally Ride, the first American woman NASA astronaut in space, introduces all the modules with incredible images from the Space shuttle and stories related to lasers, optics and the science of light. The course is available for one year upon enrollment. Certification examination is the capstone activity in this course.
