Comprehensive fiber characterization is a complex subject that requires detailed knowledge of many aspects of fiber optics and considerable skill and judgment in defining test programs carry out the tests, validating the data, analyzing and interpreting the results to provide comprehensive, authoritative documentation that is often used as a basis for making very expensive decisions
Due to this complexity has developed the special “Certified Fiber. Characterization Engineer” course so that delegates can learn how to characterize fibers with confidence, with the full back up and support of OTT and Richard Ednay, the UK’s Principal Expert on fiber testing (BSI GEL86/1,2 & 3, acts, IEC SC86C WGI, ITU-T SCI 5, SC86C & ISO/IEC JTC Acta 19 WG3 liaison).
The course includes a formal assessment that provides successful candidates with the “Certified Fiber Characterization Engineer” (CFCE) status.
Having written the ITU-T G.650.3 Recommendation on fiber characterization then OTT is setting the standard for competence in performing fiber characterization with the “Certified Fiber Characterization Engineer” course and qualification scheme.
