Here you will find courses that guide you to learn online about fiber optics and cabling topics using reading materials from the FOA Guide, Lectures and Hands-on videos on the FOA YouTube Channel and quizzes to test your comprehension.
If you have industry experience or attend a FOA-Approved training course, you can also become certified as a fiber optic technician by taking the "Certified Fiber Optic Technician" (CFOT) exam from The Fiber Optic Association (FOA). The FOA CFOT exam is a closed book, “proctored”* exam of fiber optic knowledge based on The FOA Online Reference Guide to Fiber Optics, the FOA Reference Guide to Fiber Optics textbook and the FOA Installation Tech Bulletins.
