CAB-10 - 2017 Optical Fibre Cabling


Optical Fibre Cabling

This course is designed for participants to achieve the required skills and knowledge to competently conduct optical fibre cabling. Participants in this course will be able to identify the different forms of fibre optic cable‚ gain an understanding of the propagation of light through the fibre and understand the various connection and splicing methods of optical fibre and where they are used in installations throughout the industry. Completion of this course will allow learners to apply for the Optical Fibre Internal Cabling Endorsement on their Open Registration Licence. This Endorsement covers work with optical fibre on domestic or commercial premises. It is recommended that participants already hold the Open Registration Licence or have completed the Open Registration course before attending this course.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Fully understand how light is propagated and how it is transmitted via optical fibre cable.
  • Describe the light sources used for optical fibre transmission
  • Understand the various types of fibre and when each is used.
  • Understand the construction of optical fibre cable.
  • Be conversant with the various types of jointing and termination methods involving fibre optic cables.
  • Identify the different types of fibres available.
  • Perform a fusion splice in fibre.
  • Install the various types of connectors on optical fibre fibre cable.
  • Test a splice and interpret the results on OTDR Fibre tester.
  • Utilise the various types of splicing and test equipment.
  • Demonstrate all safety requirements required when working with optical fibre.
  • Understand the different components used in a simple fibre network.


  • Unit of Competency: ICTCBL302 Install and terminate optical fibre cable on customer premises
