FOA Certification
If you already have your FOA CFOT and have industry OSP experience or attend a
FOA-Approved training course, you can also become certified as a fiber optic outside plant specialist (CFOS/O) by taking the certification exam from The Fiber Optic Association (FOA).  The FOA  CFOS/O exam is a closed book, “proctored”* exam of  fiber optic knowledge based on The FOA Online Reference Guide to Fiber Optics, OSP fiber section, the FOA  Reference Guide to Outside Plant Fiber Optics printed textbook and the FOA Installation Tech Bulletins.

Studying For The CFOS/O Exam

There are two ways to study for the CFOS/O exam: 1) Reading the textbook and testing your knowledge with the chapter questions or 2) Studying the material included in the The FOA Online Reference Guide to Fiber Optics  and taking the quizzes (Test Your Comprehension) on each page and studying the  FOA Installation Tech Bulletin (downloadable from FOA Tech Topics). Either way, you should be prepared for the CFospT exam. This is a study guide for the CFospT exam based on using the  FOA Online Reference Guide to Fiber Optics  and the printed textbook.
