ETA® Fiber Optic Technician


Our 5-day ETA® approved Fiber Optics Technician (FOT) course is designed for individuals who have at least 2 years of hands-on working experience as a fiber optic installer AND have successfully completed an entry level fiber optics training course. This course is perfect for someone looking to advance their skill level to Journeyman in the fiber optics industry. FOT training will be performed using best practices for fiber optics.

During training, you will learn advanced techniques to become proficient with fiber optic cable installation, fusion splicing, testing, troubleshooting and repair. By becoming an ETA® certified FOT, will be able to perform loss budget calculations and diagnose test results form a fiber span. Similarly, as a FOT, you will learn to identify various fiber optic cables, splice closures and connector types when performing repair and restorations.

Why become an ETA® Certified Fiber Optics Technician 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 FOT, 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 representatives who call themselves instructors.

JM Fiber Optics does not offer training without hands-on to support the classroom curriculum. Why is this important? Because only hands-on training will give you the skills needed to become a Journeymen level 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.

  • How many fiber technician training courses use a live, “hands-on” approach to using a fiber jetting machine? We Do!
  • How many fiber technician training courses use a live 10G network to teach you how to test and troubleshoot a fiber network?  We Do!

These are just 2 examples of how our hands-on training 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 from JM Fiber Optics today!
