This Hands-On course is suited for the technician who will be responsible and working with LEAD-Poly cables in an Outside Plant environment. This course is designed for the proper handling and Hands-On techniques when working with LEAD-Poly cables.
The old-school methods available to telephone maintenance staff to repair LEAD-Poly cable issues were to use the "Torch Method" or "Hot-Wipe Method" using lead sleevesclosures to fix the cable issues instead of having the expense of replace the cable section with a new one.
These methods are quickly becoming a lost art in the telecommunications industry, in effort to joint-weld and solder using lead on the cable or having to fire up the torch, these methods are not only difficult but many phone companies have very few technicians, if any, that currently have the training or expertise to perform Lead Cable repairs in the field.
This is a lab intensive course and will help develop the Hands-On practical skill sets for identifying, opening, splicing, closing and repairing the specified lead copper cables in an outside plant environment.
Lead Sleeves need to be provided for this training by the client. However, BTS can provide the Lead Sleeves for an additional cost that can be included as part of the tuition, please ask your account manager for details.
