The Fiber Optic Association (FOA) has released a new certification program for the design of fibre-optic networks.
Entitled Fiber Optic Network Design, the program examines the design of networks within the context of complete communications systems or construction projects.
The FOA said that the program has resulted from fibre-optic technicians requesting network design standards over the last decade.
The certification is available through FOA-approved schools. Those already in the industry with approved experience may apply directly to the FOA.
