This two-day (16-hour) Splicing Specialist training includes a complete PowerPoint presentation explaining the importance of high performance splicing and further details the points necessary to achieve these splices. An overview of OTDR functions and trace understanding is also provided during this presentation. This course provides 85% hands-on training, classroom activities, training in both fusion and mechanical splicing, and either single or multimode fiber optic cables. Inside or outside plant fiber optic cable types will be utilized at instructor's discretion during these hands-on sessions along with fiber optics enclosures and splice trays. The student will be responsible for successfully making and testing both mechanical and fusion splices. In addition to the basic splicing activities outlined above, the student will further be required to correctly and efficiently install spliced fibers into splice trays and enclosures. The student will further be required to achieve a splice loss of less than 0.15 dB for all splices and demonstrate proficiency in interpretation of splice loss using OTDR splice traces. This course may be taken immediately after successfully completing the FOA CFOT course. NOTE: Actual number of hours may vary depending on number of students. Prerequisite: FOA CFOT Course as of Jan. 1, 2015, the student MUST have successfully passed the basic CFOT course within the preceding 12 months or have renewed their FOA membership within that time frame prior to attending the CFOS/T, CFOS/S, and/or the CFOS/O FOA Specialist courses offered by BDI Datalynk.
