The telecommunications industry is at the forefront of the information age - delivering voice, data, graphics, and video at ever increasing speeds and in an increasing number of ways. Recently, three of the nation's largest telecommunications service providers - BellSouth, SBC Communications, and Verizon Communications took a major step toward building super-fast fiber optic lines directly to homes and businesses.

Fiber optic/Structured cabling companies are now using these courses to train in theory, installation, design and test. These self-paced courses will be an excellent learning experience for you. The Online fiber optic training course is the most comprehensive online fiber optic training course you will ever take available online. It covers all aspects of fiber optics including networks, standards, national electrical code, grounding and bonding and wiring.
