This Fibre Testing course is for those looking to obtain skills and knowledge required to work safely on a live optical fibre installation to test and commission a wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) system and to connect a splitter for fibre to the x (FTTx) deployment.
It applies to fibre technicians who engage in safe work practices as members of a team using emerging technologies to deliver very high-speed broadband capacity through the access network for the national broadband network (NBN)initiative.
This course also describes the skills and knowledge required to set up and use hand-held optical communications instruments to perform installations, upgrades and fault-finding on optical equipment.
This Fibre Testing course is for those looking to obtain skills and knowledge required to test and fault find Fibre Optic network across the different architectures (TFN, DFN and LFN / MT-LFN).
Duration & Delivery mode:
This course will be delivered in 3 face-to-face full day training sessions at one of the MILCOM training centres or at a mutually convenient and suitable location, for a sufficiently large group of participants.
After successfully completing this course, you will be able to
- Set up and prepare to work with live fibre
- Connect splitter input fibre to feeder cable
- Perform live WDM commission testing of ODN installation used in FTTx network
- Prepare to use optical measuring instruments
- Conduct optical measurements
For successful completion of this course, you need to complete and demonstrate competency in three units of competency:
ICTWHS204 – Follow work health and safety and environmental policy and procedures,
ICTBWN307 – Use optical measuring instruments,
ICTBWN308 – Work safely on live optical fibre installations
These units have Pre-requisite units; Learner will be competent in ICTBWN308 only after successful completion of ICTWHS204 and ICTBWN307
This course meets the requirements for nbn skill 12 accreditation.
