OTDR Fiber Optic

Effective 7/19/2016, BICSI recognizes Fiber Optic & OTDR Certification training for the following BICSI Continuing Education Credits (CECs): 7 BICSI CECs. Event ID OV-ANRIT-CA-0716-1

Anritsu Certification is only available through instructor-led training.

Fiber Optic, OTDR & CPRI Certification is an intensive 1-day, instructor-led class that gets hands-on with both the Access Master MT9083A2 and the Network Master Pro MT1000A to setup and perform several essential tests required for CPRI site turn-up crews including SFP, VIP, Loopback and RRU/A2 Initialization testing.

Lecture covers cable and connector types, how OTDRs work, various optical testing methods and applications and then a brief CPRI overview that goes right into the hands on section with both units. Certification is based on participation in hands-on exercises and passing a brief written exam.

Price: $1,395 per student
