FOA REFERENCE GUIDE TO PREMISES CABLING PDF

See below. Premises cabling refers to cabling installed on the premises - indoors - typically in commercial buildings but also in multi-dwelling units and residences. It includes copper cabling and fiber optics, plus wireless communications connected on the copper or wireless cabling. Most premises cabling is covered under industry standards for "structured cabling" that covers unshielded twisted pair UTP cables often called Cat 5 for one of the grades of UTP and fiber optic cables. This self-study program is designed to offer basic training in premises cabling to anyone just starting in communications wiring or fiber optics and improve the skill level of the individual with some experience.

See below. Premises cabling refers to cabling installed on the premises - indoors - typically in commercial buildings but also in multi-dwelling units and residences. It includes copper cabling and fiber optics, plus wireless communications connected on the copper or wireless cabling. Most premises cabling is covered under industry standards for "structured cabling" that covers unshielded twisted pair UTP cables often called Cat 5 for one of the grades of UTP and fiber optic cables.

This self-study program is designed to offer basic training in premises cabling to anyone just starting in communications wiring or fiber optics and improve the skill level of the individual with some experience. It is strictly a practical course, not intended to try to teach the theory. Leave that for the university classes. We emphasize the practical aspects of copper and fiber optic networks and cable plant design, installation, test, and troubleshooting. We cover how wireless fits in the communications requirements of typical networks and how it is supported by copper and fiber cabling.

We teach the basics first, then provide exercises to develop installation skills. We try to be general. We try to help the student understand the variety of the components and technological approaches used and how to choose among them. Many courses are too specific to one application, technology or manufacturer.

We want the student to understand the variety of applications, components and processes and learn where to go to find out more. This program has been developed as a cooperative effort of many volunteers from the FOA. If you have comments or suggestions on how to improve it, please contact us at info thefoa. Most of the pages will have online quizzes for you to test your comprehension, as will each chapter in the textbook.

For each section, you should take the quiz and check your answers, returning to the study materials to find out why you missed any questions. When you finish all lessons, you will be well-versed in the basics of fiber optics and ready for more! Learning More and Developing Skills If you are just getting started, you should consider attending an FOA-Approved school where you will be trained in hands-on labs to develop the skills needed to be successful in fiber optics.

You should complete all lessons including taking the quiz "Test Your Comprehension" at the end of every lesson. Please note: receiving this Fiber U Certificate of Completion does not include FOA certification but it does become documentation of your knowledge of premises cabling and should be part of your portfolio of documented knowledge, other training and work experience that can qualify you to apply for FOA direct CPCT certification through the FOA "Work to Cert" program.

For information on the FOA "Work to Cert" direct certification program for those with industry experience, go here. Reference Materials: You can take this Fiber U Online course using any of these online or printed reference materials.

The FOA Reference Guide to Premises Cabling

Until we began, most information on fiber optics was in the form of academic textbooks, not appropriate for installers and contractors, and application notes from manufacturers on their specific products. The FOA focus was on the practical side of fiber optics, the design, installation and operation of fiber optic communications networks. By tapping the knowledge of dozens of technical experts worldwide who were working in the field and training other fiber techs, the FOA has created an extensive knowledge base on fiber optics and premises cabling. FOA has published this material online and printed in textbooks. With the advent of YouTube, we created a channel and began uploading instructional videos, now over total, including more than 50 short lectures on fiber optic topics.
