FOA Advanced Fiber Optics:
AFOT® Certification

Advanced fiber optic technician certification (AFOT) is a higher level FOA certification available from CTC teaching extended courses that include more detail and provide more hands-on exercises.

CFOT is a required prerequisite for all applying for AFOT certification exams so it is assumed that students have a well-founded background in fiber optics.

Classroom instruction includes greater depth on components, network design, installation and troubleshooting. Labs for testing include greater hands-on OTDR experience, termination require more repetitions of terminations of several different types (e.g epoxy/polish and preterminated/splice connectors), more splicing (fusion and mechanical) as well as some basic fiber optic network design.

Besides more classroom and lab time, students must pass a more stringent exam.
