This book was written and compiled by one of the fiber optic industry’s leading instructors, Mr. John Bruno. John has more than 20 years experience training fiber optic professionals. He has trained well over 25,000 students in the two decades as Fiber Instrument Sales lead instructor. This training manual can be used as a tool for FIS University instructors during class, as well as a reference for anyone working in the fiber optic field. The manual begins with the fundamentals of basic fiber optic theory and leads you through connectorization techniques, video microscope operation, power meter & light source theory(OLTS), OTDR theory and testing and finishes up with fusion splicing. This guide comes with a complete and thorough reference section and troubleshooting guide. Every section goes into great detail about each topic. The reference material in this book is informative and easy to understand. It is a must have tool for fiber optic professionals.
