About Course

Optical Fiber Communication. For years there has been a need for that faster internet connection. People rely on the internet for almost everything, information/research, streaming movies from popular services like Netflix or Hulu, online gaming, even with mobile phones there is a need for that faster connection.

Optical Fiber Communication is the answer! Our old copper-based cabling simply won’t support the speeds and data capacity needed in this day in age. Big companies such as AT&T/Verizon & even the U.S. Government have invested in updating our old copper cabling to Fiber Optic Cabling. So why is it not everywhere? After investing billions in upgrading our old copper cabling to fiber cabling the communications industry realized the manpower simply isn’t there to install it fast enough. What does this mean? It means there are a lot of jobs out there in this field, the need for fiber optic professionals is high. I am here to teach you the basics of fiber optics. A lot of this course is based on the curriculum I teach at the University of Riverside that gives students a CFOT(Certified Fiber Optic Technician) Certificate from the FOA(Fiber Optics Association).

This Optical Fiber Communication course is intended for anyone who wants to learn the basics of fiber optics, maybe you are curious about the buzz around fiber optics, or maybe you are a systems administrator and IT manager that wants to gain knowledge of fiber optics.
