Georgia Southern’s short courses train, certify new fiber optics techs

POSTED: November 16, 2009 5:20 p.m.

STATESBORO — First-come, first-registered is the rule for future fiber optics technicians taking Georgia Southern University's three limited-enrollment short courses this fall in Savannah.

Limited to no more than a dozen students, each two-day or three-day fiber optic course trains participants to install, terminate, and test an actual fiber optics network in class.

Running from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, each class ends with a Fiber Optics Association certification exam, given and graded at the end of class.

The entry-level Certified Fiber Optics Technician (CFOT) course will be held Nov. 30\-Dec. 2 at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah. Students complete the $700 course by taking the CFOT exam.

Running Dec. 3-4, the follow-up class is Certified Fiber Optics Specialist in Testing and Maintenance (CFOS/T) for more advance work with fiber optics networks.

Technicians seeking to certify in installing and making fiber optics splices should register for the Certified Fiber Optics Specialist/Splicing (CFOS/S) course Dec. 5-6.

Participants in the two advanced courses should complete the CFOT course first or have a year or more of related experience. Each advanced course costs $675 and concludes with the related FOA certified specialist exam.
