This 2-day Advanced Hands-On course will teach your technicians to operate and fully understand the menus on their testing and fault locating equipment. Students will learn loop parameters needed to provide the many services customers are demanding in todays communications world. There will be in-depth instruction on maintaining the outside plant and how to successfully locate problem areas. This will include resistive and capacitive faults, power influence, and other problems associated with analog and digital transmission.
This course will include Advanced TDR Testing, Advanced Techniques using RFL Locating, Advanced TDR Troubleshooting Using the Traditional and Step Technologies and more Advanced field testing and troubleshooting.
All loop testing is reinforced with hand-on exercises and can be taken to the field if applicable.
The students will use state-of-the-art test equipment such as the, EXFO-635, HST3000, Viavi ONX-580, Dynatel 965DSPDSP-AMS, Sidekick Meter, 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.
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 is designed to give the attendees the knowledge of not only how to test with a fault locating meter, but most important, understand what the meter is telling them. All of the explanations of cable and faults are reinforced with Hands-On exercises. This is done with actual cable to give a full understanding of the menus.
