ETA® Fiber Optics Installer


For over 10 years, JM Fiber Optics has been offering a 5-day ETA® approved Fiber Optics Installer (FOI) training course. There is no prerequisite for this course. It is designed for individuals who have little to no experience, or experienced technicians with no previous standards based fiber optic certification training. This course is also perfect for a site inspector, supervisor or project manager. Here are the competency requirements of a Fiber Optics Installer (FOI).

By becoming an ETA® certified FOI, you will gain a general understanding of optical fiber installation, connectorization, splicing, and testing. You will do this by becoming familiar with optical fiber characteristics, cabling techniques, connector types, and splice performance characteristics described in TIA-568, ITU-T G.671, ITU-T G.652 and Telcordia GR-326. As a Fiber Optic Installer will perform connector endface evaluation as described in TIA/EIA-455-57B, become proficient in optical loss testing as described in TIA/EIA-526-14A, and understand the installation requirements described in articles 250 and 770 of the National Electrical Code (NEC®). You will also become proficient at terminating connectors on various types of fiber cables using various types of connectors. You will also perform mechanical and fusion splicing.

Why become an ETA® Certified FOI through JM Fiber Optics?

Our instructors have several years of “real-world” experience working with fiber optics. For example, we not only teach you what is required by ETA® to become a certified FOI, but teach you “tricks of the trade” only learned through years of experience. Since JM Fiber Optics is vendor neutral, you’ll receive “no sales pitch” from manufacturer sales people who call themselves instructors.

JM Fiber Optics does not offer training without hands-on to support the classroom curriculum. Why is this important? Because reading about fiber optic online or watching videos will never give you the hands-on skills needed to become a working fiber optic technician. In fact, you’ll be left feeling more lost than before you started. Our fully equipped training lab will bring real-word applications and environments you’ll find in the field.

Don’t be fooled by cheap, on-line imitations and “traveling road show” training from a hotel conference room. Do like hundreds have done before you and sign up for training today!
