FCPI (FBA Certified Premises Installer)

Course for people who want to acquire knowledge in the installation of passive elements of FTTx optical access networks (subscriber premises), as well as the evaluation and main criteria for the choice of drop network elements and general tests for customer activation.

• Acquire theoretical/practical knowledge in installation of optical elements of the backhaul network.
• Understand the main tests for subscriber activation (optical layer, ETH, Wi-Fi).
• Train students for the FCPI certification exam of the FBA LATAM Chapter.
Target audience: Engineers, technologists, and technicians related to fiber optic communications systems (installation, maintenance, operation, quality personnel).

Methodology: Face-to-face or virtual (in partnership with authorized FBA academies).
Number of participants: minimum 10, maximum 50 (applies for face-to-face modality, subject to space availability).

Pre-requirements: FCFF Certification.

Course approval: Pass with a minimum grade of 70% (certificate of attendance will be issued).
