This 5-day Hands-On Combination course has been developed by utilizing 3 of our highest in-demand courses
1. Hands-On OSP Bonding Grounding
2. Hands-On Copper Cable Splicing
3. Hands-On OSP Tester, Fault Locating Cable Troubleshooting
This customized course combines these courses into one strong OSP Combo course by explaining the importance of outside plant bonding and grounding. It covers the safety aspects and protection of the outside plant and customer equipment. From there it continues with different splicing methods. These would include the module splicing system, scotchloks, amps and any other connector types your company uses. It covers different closures, both aerial and buried and the correct procedure for the installation. Proper cable opening and bonding and grounding of the shield is explained with hands-on projects to reinforce each stage.
After completion of the various splices, Fault Locating techniques are explained. This section begins with a complete explanation of the local loop and the importance of parameter readings. Students will learn how to analyze a faulted cable pair and select the proper menu to locate the fault.
State of the art test equipment is used such as the DynaTel 965 DSP, Sidekick or any meter they may bring to class can be implemented into the class-labs. All menus of the meter will be covered especially the resistive fault locate, opens and TDR. This course is designed to be a 90 hands-on course so they will not only have knowledge of the testing but be able to put it to field use immediately finishing this course.
Emphasis will be placed on how to effectively use OSP Test Equipment. Most technicians in the field today only utilize about 30 of this test instruments capabilities our goal is to have a 100 of their test instruments capabilities put to use in the field. No sales pitch in this course, just training!
