    Course Details


    This theoretical and practical course aims to transfer knowledge on the fiber optics basic theory, the light propagation principles, its characteristics and measurement methods. Furthermore, this training shows, through practical sessions, how to use the fusion splicer and the Mini OTDR for measurement, analysis and certification.


    • Optical fiber physical characteristics
    • Light guided propagation
    • Attenuation and dispersion
    • Construction processes
    • Types of connectors
    • Connectorization
    • Laser power classes
    • Power Meter
    • Sensitivity and Overload
    • Direct attenuation measurements
    • OTDR principles
    • Splicing identification
    • Splicing attenuation calculation and measurements  with Mini OTDR
    • Span analysis and certification
    • Terminations cutting and preparation
    • Splicing implementation
