This course is designed specifically for installation and maintenance staff working on enterprise networks. It provides a broad knowledge of the components and equipment and highlights good working practices in order to inspire a professional approach to the job role. Practical sessions build the skills required to install, joint, terminate and test fibre optic cabling links.


The syllabus shown here is designed for staff involved with standard enterprise networks. The course can be customised to cover harsh environments, industrial applications and data centres as required.

It also helps to remove incorrect working habits which might have been picked up from other cabling jobs. It can help if a team attends the course together along with their project supervisor or manager so everyone ends up working to the same professional standrds.


Typical job roles of attendees include: installation or cabling technician or engineer; project supervisor.
