This training and certification focuses on how to design a fiber optic cable plant that will provide the transmission requirements of a desired communications system. It is intended for network users and operators, contractors, installers, architects and engineers, project managers and all others who are involved with projects that include fiber optics.

Fiber optic networks are widely used, not just for telecom, but CATV, computer LANs, cellular phone towers, municipal wireless, security surveillance systems, metropolitan data, intelligent highways, fiber to the home, or practically every communications network. Every fiber optic network is unique and requires a thorough process from conception to completion to ensure a successful design.

The FOA Certification is focused on the unique aspects of fiber optic network design since the fiber optic designer is a team member co-operating with the project manager overseeing the whole project design. The focus is on the cooperation between network owner/user and contractor to work with the designers to create the documentation that will facilitate the actual network construction. The FOA training curriculum includes these basic topics:
[icon_list] [icon_list_item type=”cogs”]Planning the network – establishing the needs for communications and the network route(s)[/icon_list_item] [icon_list_item type=”cogs”]Starting the documentation[/icon_list_item] [icon_list_item type=”cogs”]Choosing equipment, hardware and components, [/icon_list_item] [icon_list_item type=”cogs”]Understanding power and loss budgets[/icon_list_item] [icon_list_item type=”cogs”]Planning and supervising the installation process[/icon_list_item] [icon_list_item type=”cogs”]Planning for operation and restoration[/icon_list_item] [icon_list_item type=”cogs”]Hands-on case studies[/icon_list_item] [/icon_list]

What is not inherently part of the FOA curriculum but is left to the school and the students is the drawings, usually done in CAD, and GIS (geographic information systems) location of the routing. Too often fiber optic network design is thought of as only doing a set of drawings, but this course is intended to cover the actual project design where the personnel focus on the communications system and infrastructure that lead to proper documentation and drawings from which personnel can effectively build the project.

Prerequisites for the training and certification include having a FOA first level certification (CFOT or CPCT) certification or equivalent knowledge and experience in fiber optic communication technology and installation.
