Fiber Optic Training

From the Nation's Leader in Fiber Optics



As the nation’s leading supplier of fiber optics, FIS founded FIS University in 1995 to meet the ever-growing demand to train professionals within the fiber optic industry. Over the last fifteen years, FIS University has trained over 10,000 professionals in both basic and advanced techniques related to connectorization, testing and fiber optic splicing.

Our training staff has over 18 years of industry experience in both field and network engineering capacities. Not only do you learn from the nation’s leading fiber optic experts but you could also earn BICSI CEC’s for RCDD, LAN Specialist, and/or Installation, and earn transferable college credits. Fiber optic training can be customized to focus one or more of the following areas:

• Practical, Hands-On Training
• Connectorization Techniques
• Test Equipment Operation
• Fusion Splicing
• OTDR Operation
• Installation and Restoration
• LAN Applications
• SOC Certification

Training is provided by our nationally renowned instructor, John Bruno. John started with FIS in 1996 and with his B.S. in Computer Science became the Computer Network Manager while also overseeing FIS’s equipment rental program. Soon after, John’s comprehension and passion for fiber optic technologies became apparent and he was tapped to become a full time fiber optic trainer.

Over the past 18 years John’s ‘down-to-earth’ methods and style have allowed him to train over 10,000 students in a variety of industries such as CATV, mining, broadcast, telco and various government agencies.

"I get the greatest satisfaction when I hear that a student or a company that I have trained goes on to be successful with fiber optics. Being afforded the opportunity to forge lasting relationships while providing a great service make me grateful to each participant in my classes."
