A new edition of the FOA’s Reference Guide to Fiber Optics is designed to be used by anyone interested in fiber optics.

 

The textbook was developed from new material on the Fiber Optics Association’s Online Reference Guide Web site.

 

The manual, originally published in 1997 and now in its 3rd edition, was the first textbook written especially for training fiber optic installers.

 

“With the FOA’s experience in certifying over 27,000 fiber optic techs in the last 12 years, we have reorganized the materials in this new book to make them better arranged for training,” the FOA said in a release.

 

“We have also added new materials on fiber optic datalinks, FTTH and testing, as well as complete new chapters on fiber optic network design and installation as requested by students, instructors and other FOA members.”
