Various approved locations throughout the U.S.

February 2013 - December 2018. 

Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Students will be able to: discuss the theory of operation and characteristics of the various topologies used in designing fiber optic communication links; discuss the theory of operation of LED transmitters; explain the theory of operation of photo diodes; discuss the theory of operation lasers; discuss the theory of operation of multiplexers; given a statement of work, demonstrate the ability to conduct research and obtain the necessary documentation and technical literature to plan a simple optical fiber installation.


Fiber Optics-Advanced is the third course in a three-course, classroom-based series. This course includes the theory of operation and function of components found in installed fiber optics systems to include LEDs, photo diodes, and lasers. Modulation and demodulations techniques, LAN architectures and protocols used in fiber optics transmission systems are also covered.

Credit recommendation: 
In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Fiber Optics or Applied Technology (2/13).*NOTE: Course numbers on transcripts may reflect different prefixes depending upon where a course is offered.
