Enroll Now in Subnet Services' Combined Basic CFOT and CFOSH Course

Interested to enter the fiber optics industry and get trained in two courses at the same time?

Subnet Services offers the Combined Basic CFOT and CFOSH FTTx FTTH Technician (TEL2005) training course, a combination of Certified Fiber Optic Technician (CFOT) and CFOSH Fiber to the Home Premises FTTx FTTH (TEL2004) that will run for five (5) days. It is designed to take a fiber optics beginner to advanced stage in a short time.

Combined Basic CFOT and CFOSH Course Overview

Since this is a combination of CFOT and CFOSH, let us do a run-through of the two fiber optics courses.

The CFOT program combines both theory and practical exercises with at least 75% hands-on activities and introduces you to industry standards governing fiber to the desk (FTTD), fiber to the home (FTTH), local area network/wide area network (LAN/WAN), as well as practical fusion and mechanical splicing.

The CFOSH course covers fiber to the home, fiber to the premises, fiber to the curb, and fiber to the business. It can be used to either train installation technicians who are already familiar with fiber optic installation (in other words, those who are already Certified Fiber Optic Technicians) or those who can be structured to train other personnel in support roles including customer service.

The Combined Basic CFOT and CFOSH course is conducted at Subnet Services’ technical training center in Manila, Philippines OR our team of technical training instructors will come to you and deliver the training at your preferred location.
