KITCO FIBER OPTIC 3-YEAR "CRAFTSMAN" CERTIFICATION:
Based on the requirements listed in MIL-STD 1678, Requirement 1306 Table I and II.
This course is designed for those students who will be installing, connecting, cleaning and evaluating, repairing, testing and troubleshooting fiber optic systems and equipment on military aircraft. After completing this course, each student will be able to install and maintain fiber optic cables and systems onboard military aircraft. According to MIL-STD 1678 the training required to work on military aircraft is as follows:
Actions shall be taken to ensure personnel are trained by training organizations certified for the training required proficiency skill sets. Organizations shall ensure that military maintainers, depot artisans, prime and sub-prime contractors, and others within the fiber optic community (both Governments and commercial) have initial and maintain an adequate skill set for their assigned fiber optic responsibilities. Implement reoccurring training or otherwise augment as needed to ensure skill set sustainment. Perishable skill sets are those that are lost or degraded rapidly (usually within months) if not practiced or performed. On military platforms, the fiber optic cable assemblies intended to be inspected and maintained are cable harnesses, (1) equipment (electronic module/package) such as an ATC, LRC, LRM, LRU or WRA with internal fiber optics, (2) circuit card modules and assemblies with internal optics, and (3) other miscellaneous cabling.
This course teaches the following MILSPEC connectors and termini:
