KITCO™ Has partnered with Corning to enhance our Commercial Technician Fiber Optic Training Course focusing on Inside plant (ISP) Installations.
KITCO™ has added the Corning Unicam, FuseLite splice-on connectors and Splice Cassettes to our inside plant training course. Our mission is to provide our students with the BEST hands-on experience and knowledge for them to be successful in terminating a variety of connectors in the field such as STs, SCs, and LCs. The technician will be exposed to epoxy, Hot-Melt, crimp-on (NENP) and splice-on connector termination techniques. Students will perform fusion splicing and mechanical splicing in a splice tray. Additionally, students are taught how to clean, inspect, test and troubleshoot fiber optic cables and cable plants using the Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (OTDR), Optical Loss Test Set (OLTS), Optical Return Loss Meter (ORLM) and the Visual Fault Locator (VFL).
We understand the need to provide you with recognized industry qualifications and certifications. Our 5-day Certified Technician Course will provide you with the qualifications noted and the proven skillsets and knowledge to take the Electronics Technician Association (ETA) certification exams. The ETA exams are optional. They offer a great opportunity to become certified by an internationally renowned organization. Our course curriculum is approved to allow the student to take both the Fiber Optic Installer (FOI) and Journeymen Technician Certification Tests (FOT). Fiber optic examinations are available for an additional fee of $155 each.
