OSP Tester, Fault Locating & Cable Troubleshooting
w/ I&R refresher
This 3-day Hands-On course is designed to not only give the new hire a good insight of the telephone loop, including installation and troubleshooting, but to answer some of the questions the veteran repair person may have
After completion, this Course has a proven track record to reduce PSC complaints and dramatically decrease the number of repeat trouble tickets.
This Course is 75 Hands-On Labs on our State-of-art Equipment.
The IR Refresher will cover the practices and specifications of both buried and aerial installations will be presented. Correct bonding and grounding of the install and outside plant cable will include REA guidelines and PSC mandates. These are very important for the safety of the Technician and the Customer. All service standards will be presented and explained.
This course will also train students to identify and locate faults in copper "pic" outside plant cables. Students will analyze a faulted cable pair and select the correct test set to locate the fault. The students will use state-of-the-art test equipment such as the EXFO-635, JDSU-HST3000, Dynatel 965 DSP, Sidekick Meter, MTDR and incorporate any meter(s) that students can bring to the session to use during the hands-on lab procedures throughout the course. Locating buried cables will also be covered and fault simulators will be used during the hands-on lab exercises to reinforce Real-World Experience. Students will learn how to locate resistive, capacitive and cross-battery faults using the multiple OSP test equipment.
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!
Our SMEs have the field experience to find the answers to real live scenarios, providing students with a Real-World Experience
This course will be instructed by a nationally known expert in telecom training and is also a factory trained and certified instructor on the EXFO-635, 3M 965 2273, SidekickTempo, Sunrise Telecom and JDSU (TTCActerna) fault locators.
